    FRONT & REAR DISC'S

    Hi all, just recently changed front and rear pads on my 41,000 mile Trophy. I've had an advisor to say the rear disc is below the minimum tolerance and the front ones aren't far behind. Would you say this is right for that sort of mileage? I remember changing my discs on my old 955i at 30,000. What do you all think?

    I'd say that without knowing your driving habits, it's darn near impossible to answer that question. Given my mostly city riding, and when not in the city being a bit spirited, I'd be elated if I ever got that many miles out of mine.

    I ride to work which could be anywhere in my business. Motorways  and city traffic.

    I agree, brake wear is hard to compare if riding habits are different.

    Almost like comparing tire wear.

    I am happy to get 10k miles from front pads.

    41k miles seems premature unless there was some metal to metal contact.

    Have you verified the minimum thickness with a vernier caliper?

    Yeah, sounds premature.
