uneven front pad wear normal??
« on: August 05, 2015, 11:26:26 pm »
Just changed my front pads today at 44,605 miles.  Never seen such uneven wear on any bike I've owned.   Only one really worn out the left lower inside pad.  rest all servicable.  But changed them all anyway....

I just put in my second set of replacement pads (85,000 kms). One of the right side pads worn down more than the others again, must be the linked brake ones. All other pads even wear.

That's normal for bikes with linked brakes.  The Gold Wing does it too on the front brake pads, but I think its more pronounced on the Trophy.
