Where to buy Brake Pads on line?

This may be out there somewhere but I'm not finding it.
I have a 2004 K1200Gt and rear pad replacement is approaching. I live about 2 hours from the closet BMW dealer, anybody know where I can get a set of OEM pads on line?

Chicago BMW has been a good source for mail-order parts...

Sierra Cement: Good for skis, bad for knees.

Google BMW Motorcycle Parts. You will get a few hundred hits. Stick with OEM aftermarket seem very dirty and wear out fast.

True, but that's because they are probably softer Kevlar and wear out the rotors slower. My rear pad wear slowed a lot when I stopped using the rear brake. Went from 4K to 10K.

West I-10, just outside of Junction, Tx. Took it last year when I was heading back home from the THC Roundup in April. I haven't gone further east than Kerrville, but the limit is 80 until you get west enough to get into El Paso county.

The sign just a tad bit further is for truck, 70MPH, 60MPH at night.

brake pads

You can get pads at www.ronayers.com or www.ridegear.com. A lot of us buy EBC pads. It is a very good product and way less expensive than BMW OEM. EBC will cost you about $30/$35 for a pair.
