Front Brake pad Suggestions..........

I Need new front pads on the 03 Tuono. I do a couple track days a year most of the time I commute to work on her. I want to upgrade a bit with out dropping a mint. Should I even upgrade these pads have lasted almost 28k miles. I am thinking about getting better track performance with out giving up much longevity. Any suggestions would be appreciated.

Just installed EBC HH pads on my 05 Tuono Factory. Had them on my previous bike and immediate impressions are favorable. I had a nasty squeal from the OEMs from about 1K miles to when I changed them at 10K. Nice and quiet now with a good confidence-inspiring progressive feel.

I have a F150 p/u 2000 for 10yrs. Each year I change the brake pads. But the rear pads still looks like new. The front pads are worn down. What can be causing the problem?


normally, you replace the rear brake pads every other change in the front brake pads. for your case, it seems that the front brakes are the only ones working.

bleed your brakes to check if rear brakes are still working. after bleeding, check your brake master if it puts pressure equally to the 4 brakes.

When do you replace bike brake pads? I'm putting up some pictures of both my front and rear pads. I'm wondering if it's time to replace them. They seem pretty worn and the rear brakes won't lock up any...


Unless you have grooves in the rotors that almost gouge your fingernails, they should be good.

One indication of "needing pads" is, indeed, the loss of power; however, roughing them up CAN give you some more life, as it looks like you have pad material to work with. But if the roughing doesn't work, it's time for new....

...And I always recommend ceramic pads! Two years of awesome performance in my BB7's! Modulation is a step above ANYthing else I've used, and the stopping power is there all day long.

Truck has 195,000 on it. after it has been running for a couple of min the abs light and the parking brake light both come on, brake fluid is full, has new front hubs with abs sensor in them (last year),...


Yes the rear has sensors, but seeing you just had front pads installed, I'd look for a loose or broken wire in the front first. I've installed front pads with the sensors and thought I got them installed right, come to find out they were not making good connection on the pads.

Premature brake wear on my 2005 Honda Civic


What it sounds like is you have very poor quality pads on the car. The subject of brake pads can go on for days. If it was me I would buy a top of the line name brand pads , if the rotors can be turned the turn them or replace them. Also struts and shocks that are old affect the brakes and stopping distance. I think someone has just sold you poor quality brakes. and if your rotors are warpped this will cause the wiggle you feel when stopping.

try a different brand of pads. Civics aren't the best at pads lasting a long time. you need to go with a semi-metallic pad such as the O'Reilley auto parts "BrakeBest" brand.

The hard part is pressing the caliper piston abck into the caliper so you can get the new, thicker pads over the rotor. A large C Clamp works best.

Honda Accord 2003 V6 Premature brake replacement


Those models had very soft pads because customers were whining about brake squeaks. Honda's answer was to put on soft pads that wear out quickly. DUH!
If you can find some by VGX- they work great and are quiet also.
Good luck!
