Hey, mine looked just like that, now I don't feel so bad.

The sound of rolling the bike out of the garage on Saturday was different. Took a look at the rear pads and :oops: ...

SBS LS Sintered Brake Pads (769LS) - 28,000 kms.

Last year the factory OEM pads gave out 26,000 kms looking pretty much the same.

Not a lot of mileage, but good catch!

Y'all need to use more of her engine braking. Apparently it makes a big difference.

It does. But apparently people in here don’t like it and have it reduced during flashing..

The troubling part is 90% of my riding is Highway. For the brake pads to wear that quickly?! I would like to disengage the integrated braking if possible. I don’t need the rear brakes to help slow me down when applying the front brakes. I would prefer to choose WHEN, and IF, I need to use the rear brakes.

There are members who've removed the anti skid systems when the module has corroded and become unusable due to cost of replacement. But there's no way to selectively remove part of it and this really makes the point to occasionally hit the brakes hard on wet grass or gravel to cycle the pump.

For all the noobs, the rear brake on the Tenere does wear fast and it's not uncommon to replace pads and sometimes the disc in the 15-20,000 mile range. The rear disc gets grooves pretty quick if you don't keep the caliper pins clean. These are a known thing that we live with.

The RT would go through pads every 10k miles, and had completely separate front/rear brakes. The ST was every 5k, and were linked. The Tenere's are sorta/kinda linked, and are going to last the longest. Of course the ST/RT were ridden a little differently. From the looks of them, I should easily get 20k out the rear.

Thank You!
