I have just over 28K on my 07 and thought I should get around replacing the stock break pads. I had checked them by pulling the calipers at ~22K and still had plenty of pad left. When I pulled them yesterday they still had at least 2 to 3K left on them. I don't run the "H" out of the bike, but I don't baby it either.

Question: How many miles did you get out of your stock break pads and what did you replace them with. [Anticipating the need to change them I bought EBC Double-H set from the local stealer].

I got about 8,000 miles out of the rear BRAKE pads . The front BRAKE pads still have alot of life left , as I use the rear BRAKE'S more than the front BRAKE'S .

:edit: I hv 6000 on my bike, and it looks like I need new front pads....WTF. I'll have it checked when I take it for inspection. What kind of pads should I get? Do they have any that don't cause brake dust?

I have the same milage as you and I have replaced them twice. I must ride the brakes or got defective pads. I know I did the first set I bought.

Sounds like you need to use your throttle a little more. :evil: Do you guys down shift or just pull in the clutch and brake it to a stop?

"more throttle...less brake" Doc :D I have about 16k and will need rears soon,but my fronts look like they will go 25-30k I also have a full set of EBC HH sitting in the console of my Ridgeline waiting for me. I'm a little harder on the rear's then I should be too.

Had the dealer change my tires, grease the drive shaft and change the brake pads last week. 22200 miles on her. The fronts really grab now! Had to get used to them. It made a BIG difference! :bigthumbsup:

I think I have only touched my rear brake about 3-4 times when cagers have cut me off and needed all I had to stop. Ok maybe a few more times when the road was wet but other then that I never use the break. Down shift and use the fronts.

I'm at 21,000+ and I'll be right around, where you ended up keitho! Maybe a little further but not much. It will be, this season for sure:eek: Did you change them out yourself, or did the dealer do it? And if the dealer did, what did they charge you for that job:dontknow: Just to get and idea.

Do it yourself ...its a simple job,just observe the normal brake replacement cautions and procedures. You can do them all in less then two hours...taking your time and drinking a beer. If your a flat rate mechanic it's probably a 45 minute job for all three.

Dealer charged $109 for front and rear pads and $108 labor.
