Approaching 6000 miles and visually front pads seen to still have wear indicators still visible. So was wondering what mileage anyone had changed there front pads at.
Not that there's anything wrong with drum brakes.You are welcome and you are correct, the U. S. SCRs are non-abs. I've had both and personally, I prefer the non-abs bikes. But, this is coming from an old guy whose first bikes had drum brakes both front and rear! Cheers! Jevers
In my SCR experience, if you don’t use both brakes together, then you ain’t stopping!!Amen on the peace, brother! Just for reference, I do use my front brake along with my rear brake with EVERY stop, except when I'm riding on gravel. Also, I have bought bikes new, ridden them for 25k to 30k miles and never changed the brake pads. Jevers
But have you picked up some better pads though?? I’d be intrigued to see if there was a tangible improvement……Thanks for imput, on Honda cub and vanvan Suzuki's I was getting thru pads in 4000 miles!
With the SCR weighing in like a battleship and only having a single front disc I was expecting simular mileage. I will probably have a look and clean, and now have spare pads on shelf in garage.
