Mine burned through a few exhaust connector gaskets, I always kept a spare.
After a while I worked out that if every time I got a new rear tyre I also changed the pads and connector gasket at the same time it would save a lot of fannying around afterwards.

It was time to change the spark plug after I discovered a 2000 km flaw in my spreadsheet. I am dyslexic so mistakes happen. I went 14,800 km instead of 12,800. No big deal. The plug went in without too much difficulty. I ordered a new spark plug from the UK so I will have one ready for next year.

While I had the tools out in the shed, I pulled the rear caliper off to have a look at the brake pads. Looking at the pads with the caliper on I thought I had plenty of pad left but with the caliper off I found I had 1.15 mm on the outer pad beside the piston and 2.80 mm on the inner pad. So I am still getting uneven wear. I could not see the outer pad because of all the dirt around it. I ride in the rain a lot still.

This set of Delta Braking pads lasted a lot longer than my previous Taiwan pads. 23,000 km versus 9000 km. From April to November, 8 months vs 5 months. I have ordered another set of Delta's.

The front brakes is a totally different story. The current pads have 44,800 km on them and look practically new. This is really strange because all my previous motorcycles wore out the front brakes faster than the rears. With ABS I can't even do a stoppie. I like the ABS!!!

The pads I just put on are a left over Taiwan soft pad so I will try to clean the dirt around them to get a good visual inspection every so often. Should I squirt them with the hose? Or some other method?

Where can I get those DELTA pads (never heard of them)?

Then 44,000km out of front pads, wow. Are they stock, or Delta too? Mine's are stock and won't
last much more than the rear ones (with all pads showing even wear).

With everything else beeing 'normal' (pistons, sliders etc), I don't quite understand how a cowboy
like you can beat me slowpoke 44-10, fronts. Am I missing something?

PS: I use an air pistol to clean the calipers out of brake dust, The rears can then be seen from the
back with a pocket flashlight.

I should try my air compressor on the mud and see what happens.

I think my front pads are the EBC Double-H Sintered Brakes for Superbikes I bought from my local Honda dealer. The rear of that brand only lasted 8326 km but that was before I bought a new rear caliper pin.

Factory fronts went to 16940 km. Factory rear to 13594 km.

The front pads work just fine, I try out the ABS doing a front only panic stop. No problems. They work so I won't "fix" them.

The rear pads came from

I know. The Deltas are already coming, from England, and much cheaper than Honda's.
Anyway, do you have the EBC p/n for the front ones - not found in local dealer's dated (?) catalogs ?

No guarantees but my invoice says EBC FA388HH. There is also a EBC SFA388HH. The pad fits lots of bikes and probably came out of Motovan Canada. Some places list the Forza, some do not, some places are out of date. My EBC front pads were $54 plus tax. Delta is definitely cheaper.

So I phoned FORTNINE, and they have the Front EBCs (SFA388HH /50$), but not the
Rears (SFA 415HH).

Now with 5 new pad sets, 'pieces' of mind haha.

Ffs you’ll be buggering a standard air pistol firing it without a pellet. To clean out your brake calipers.

Are you an idiot?
