How long do brake pads normally last
Make your brake pads last longer
REDUCE YOUR SPEED
If you drive with high speed, and brake hard it will create lots of friction, which will increase wear on your brake pads and reduce their lifetime. Make it a habit to slow down a bit before using your brake.
DRIVING DOWN A STEEP HILL
If you are driving down a steep hill or mountain do not only use your brake to control speed. Instead downshift.
USE ENGINE BRAKING
When you realise that you will have to brake shortly, slowly let go on the handle. Being good at engine braking will make you a better and safer rider, plus it will save you money long term.
