    Brake Service

    Well, it's been 3000 mile since I had all my brake pads replaced because there was nothing left on them, so I thought I'd whip them off and have a look.



    Very easy to give them a quick check and clean. About 30 minutes. They all look ok but I don't think they'll last beyond the 18000 mile service and I will almost certainly need disks too. Chain and sprockets are beginning to look worn also, so I better start saving my pennies :012:
    Anything more than two wheels is unnecessary.

    6700 miles on my rear and will need new disc and pads.   $503.00usd.  My Harley is 250lbs heavier
    And I get 20k on the rear.   
    Life behind bars enjoy the ride

     Harleys never go fast enough to need braking.
