 50 000 km to a set of pads sounds about right, but 11 years  :5: .

  :whistle:

 Rob.

I must have been sore on my brakes then, 6 months and only 5000 miles (8000 kms) I wore them down to almost bare metal.
OEM brakes on the 2018 V650 I had.

I changed the pads again for the HH(sintered). But one of my front brake discs is vibrating like a mofo. Literally it makes vrrrrr sound. I think it is the right one because the disc was hotter than the left one after i stopped. I had this issue before when i used the semi-sintered brake pads, as i posted here before, but it was not as bad as it is now and it jsut went away after a while. Maybe because the HH is tougher material it is not as forgiving. So I am wondering if it will go away(ie. it is something that happens often with new pads) or if I have warped disc or something else? The bike has 12k on it and i would like to avoid wasting money servicing it for such a minor thing. Also the milage suggest that warped disc should absolutely not be the case.

Sounds like a warped disc though, stone stuck in between the rotor and the pad? Could cause the rotor to warp, guess how I know…

Try swapping pads over (right to left, left to right) eliminates it being the pads.

Could it just be a dirty/sticky calliper piston not retracting fully?

Try cleaning your bobbins

So I have found the problem. I can't believe it actually happened but it did.

The problem was that the bottom screw on the left side(with abs sensor) that connects the brake with the fork mount was petruding about 1-2 millimeters into the path of the brake disc and it was simply scraping the bobbins on the outer side of the front disc. I have added a washer and the problem is gone.

What I cannot beleive is that it happened to begin with. The top and bottom screws have the same length so I have not switched them. And the thread is fine so I haven't overdone it. I just don't know, weird situation.
