They're going to have to do way better than that to beat Toyota's record of 8 mil. recalled.........

I need to find rear brake pads that arent made of some imported soft cheese. My K12RS is the only bike Ive ever had that goes through rears twice as fast as fronts (linked brakes). Sure does stop well though.

That's funny, back when I had my K100RS I used to go through rear pads and I hardly ever even used the rear brake......maybe they should switch to Romano instead of Gouda for their brake pads....

Compassionate....concerned... environmentally correct company, remember now they were the first to stick cat's up their motorcycles bungs......
