Been using EBC HH's.  No problems.  Rear do seem to wear out a bit faster than the front... but we're talking 35-42,000 miles...

You definitely have an issue. I’m on my original set at 33k miles. I do mostly highway miles.

Does black market mean knockoffs?  If so, I’d bet that is your problem.

That could well be your problem then !

Entering the part Number T2020555 into some Triumph Parts suppliers web sites,
such as Fowlers Parts will bring up a list of the Motorcycle models that the Pads fit,
and for this Part Number the Trophy is not listed, indicating that they
should probably not be fitted to the Trophy !

Entering the Part Number I quoted previously ( T2025045 ) into the same Web Site
DOES list the Trophy, indicating that these are the correct Pads to use.

I have no idea what the difference is between the two fricton materials used
in these two different sets of pad, but I would go back to whoever supplied
and fitted yours and ask them why they were used, as they appear to be incorrect
and don't last a reasonable time, compared to what appear to be the recommended pad set.

I had my annual maintenance service plus my 10,000 mile service completed this last July (at approx 10,800 mileage) and had to have my rear brake pads replaced.  I "do" use my rear brakes a lot more than my front brakes.  Also, I carry a lot of weight on my bike (camping gear) and run a lot of curvy roads.

I'd probably use my front brakes more, but I don't actually don't like how they feel most of the time when used.  But, I've also had a couple of panic stops and they both (front & rear) functioned great - thanks for the ABS!

I also had to replace my OEM rear tire at 8,000 miles (I went ahead and replaced the front also).  I put Michelin Road 5 tires on it.  So we'll see how long they last.  I was surprised that the OEM tire needed replaced with only 8K miles, but I usually carry a lot of weight which I think might have been a major factor.

I cant recall using any tyre after 6000 miles. There would still be tread left on them but the profile of the tyre  changed at this sort of mileage which doesn't suit my style of riding. I guess if I was just running up & down the motorways i could squeeze more out of them, but I tend to use more technically challenging roads.
