    Brake pads life expectancy

    Sorry if it's already been discussed. I tried to search but couldn't find satisfactory answer.
    What is the front pads life expectancy from new? I bought bike with 7k miles on the clock and they still looks good to me. No track days, just occasional 'spirited' riding.

    Also, I assume Brembo SA compound is for a normal road use and SC for track. Correct? If so. what about using SA on the track? Not recommended?

    Thanks.

    Changed mine around 12,000 miles if I recall correctly. I replaced with the same Brembo ones I took off, BRM 10 AHH was the code. Don't know what compound they are but I'm not on track just the road and they stop me no problem even when I'm ragging it at 59MPH on the back roads.........

    Hi Nevman, it all depends on riding style. Mine were changed at 21K a couple of weeks back.

    As Phil says it all depends on riding style and how heavily you use the brakes.

    Like Jimmy, I also think I changed mine somewhere in the region of ~ 12-15 K miles

    I use SC compound and do some trackdays mixed in with road riding, and they might last one season, maybe 2-3k miles at a push.

    I bought my S1000rr with 31k on the clock and changed the pads immediately they were on the BM advised limit I now change them twice a year as I only do track days

    Brake Pads

    I dread to think how much I've spent on brake pads over the last couple of seasons...

    I'm just about to change my oem pads with 8k on the clocks. That's with 2-3 trackdays a year and a trip away. Im going from bembo SC next.
