    Rear brake disk

    Evening.
    Seeing as the rear disc has deeper groves in it than the Grand Canyon  :233: i found this 2nd hand disc off a 2015 TTSE, almost perfect, I can understand some folk would turn their nose up at used parts, but this is truly perfect, 100% flat and measures at 4.93mm, £50 English pounds, better than the £154 I was quoted. Just waiting on the bargain brake pads, again genuine Triumph.

    Well done! Nothing wrong with used parts in my book, so long as they're mechanically sound.

    I have a 2014 Honda Pilot that had to have new brakes all around (74,000 miles). The brakes still worked, pads were worn but not to the point that they were starting to chew up the rotors. The shop guy gave me the brake estimate with four new rotors. I asked him why and he told me they were worn beyond spec (I had this confirmed with my own eyes).

    I asked him why they couldn't just turn them down and he said that rotors these days (at least the ones on non high-performance vehicles) are too thin to turn. They have just enough material to wear down and then replace. Apparently, it's part of the effort to lower the weight of the vehicle to get it in compliance with federally mandated MPG ratings....  :233:

    The next time I need rotors, I'll get them from a breaker yard!

    Update to my previous post.
    Pads now arrived  :047: but a little surprised to find they are made in Japan  :084:
    Wheel out, but run out of day light, so work will commence tomorrow / Saturday.....if it don't rain, deep clean also in order before reassembly.

    DP brake pads are quite good.

    Update to the Disc and pads.
    Replacement disc in and all torqued up, and square, or should that be round  :084: :745:
    Wheel refitted and torqued, new pads so happy happy days  :001:

    Moving onto the front, started on the off side, the old ones came out without to much hassle, and new refitted  :028: the wife interrupted me with the call for lunch.....on return to the bike with a full belly, the sun shining and feeling of "right lets finish this" ....I then realised I had only bought one set of pads......for one side  :138: what a  :125: :125: :125: :125:
    So I have ordered the set for the other side, and I so wanted to go out on the bike tomorrow, o well, at least i'll save on the fuel.

    I bought the bike last September from a local ish  dealer to me, none Triumph dealer, the bike was suppose to of been serviced / pdi'd........the bike had 15000 miles on the clock, I have done about a 1000 since my ownership.
    This is one of the front pads, I don't think it's worn down that much in 1000 miles.   




    I have a lifetime warranty on the bike, if I have the bike serviced by them, I don't think I'll bother, they passed the bike of as good, with a good report on the pads..Bulls..t comes to mind........The shop in question, CMC motorbikes, the bike came from their Coleshill branch, they will never have my custom or recommendations.......O, and the clutch failed a week after ownership.

    So the conclusion is, if I can do it I will, I have mechanical experience, and if not, i'll go to a local Triumph dealer.

    The specified minimum thickness of brake pad lining material ( front or rear ) is just 1.5mm.

    The Service Manual ( 15.11 ) states,

    If any pad has worn to the bottom of the groove in the pad centre,
    replace all the brake pads on that wheel.

    The accompanying Line Drawing depicts a "Minimum Thickness Line" at the base of those grooves.

    In your Photo, the grooves appear to show that there is still around 1.5mm
    left before the Pads hit the Minimum Thickness, and need to be replaced.

    I have no idea what the lining thickness of a new pad is.
