Questions on brake pads
What's the life expectancy of a set of pads? I put a set of Vesrah RJL pads on and my second trackday they were half worn down and fading so bad I went off track. The lever just came back to my fingers but once cool worked OK until they warmed up. I've experienced this twice on this bike (I just bought it this season so I thought the original pads were already worn) and my streetbike showed the same symptoms when hot on a Deal's Gap trip.
I know Suzukis are known for brake fade but this seems to be related to the pad wear.
