Brake Pads at 5000 Miles?
I ran Deal's Gap hard today (for me anyway) and when I got to the resort I noticed the red idiot light was on. It didn't go off after the bike sat. I checked the manual and it says an electrical detector has determined that the brake pads need to be replaced. Now I use engine braking for most cornering deceleration, but obviously I use the front brake. But I do not think it is possible to wear out the pads in 5,000 miles. I put 40,000 miles on my RT and never had the pads replaced. Have any of you had early wear indication? Is this another electrical gremlin to go along with my non-functioning fuel gauge?
