    Re: Brake pads life expectancy

    I know it is all down to riding style. I had few bikes and went through some pads already
    Just wasn't sure what to expect from bike with 7k miles on the clock, knowing that the previous owner has been riding in a 'spirited manner', but not on the track.
    From the answers above it appears that I can expect at least another 5k+ miles, which is great. Unless I manage to do a track day this year, which I am hoping for...
    Thanks all.

    The OE pads lasted around 4k miles with a TD thrown in and could probably have got another five hundred road miles out of them but had a TD coming up. Now running SC pads for the last 1500 miles including a couple of days on track and they seem to be wearing well.

    Think I've done my OEM's in 2.5k with 3 days at Jerez, Cadwell and 2x trips to Snetterton!

    Changed pads just after i got the bike (although looking at them now probably would be ok) ferodos lasted 12000 miles including a few track days. Got some sbs in now - seem pretty good. Pads seem to have a very thick back plate and less pad material compared to what i'm used to.

    Mode Performance

    You will probably find Mode Performance the cheapest for Brembo products at the moment given the poor exchange rate.

    For reference SC's for non-HP4 brakes are 8.75mm total with a 4.5mm backing plate. So 4.2mm of material.

    I've ordered with carpimoto again, always quick service and pricing was ok.

    I've paid around 109 euros incl delivery for 2 pairs, bear in mind they are the m4 calipers, not standard ones.
