Brake Discs again

(1/1)

KildareMan:
Reached the wear limit on the front discs (2nd time) so have ordered a pair online from Italy. UK prices although cheaper initially shoot up when customs charges are added to here.

To be honest was never really 100% with the current set. Think this might be down to the bobbins, one of which I found to be sticking, although freed up with some brake cleaner & gentle taps on the disc circumference with a soft mallet. Any which way new discs inbound.

freeware:
Hi there,

How many miles you get from a set of discs? I'm near 4mm limit at 35k miles. Rear is 5.3mm (limit 5mm).

KildareMan:
These I'm replacing - 30,000km. Happy to see back of them to be honest. Grabby. Made me doubt the bike early on.
