    and Ediboy, my suggestion is just buy the OEM pads. they aren't that much money, and they do the job really well. you tend to get what you pay for...
    My total mileage was just over 26,000 miles. I used to ride quite fast ( Sorry Officer ) but rarely braked hard. The tyres lasted very well too.

    Even wear on the tyres as I tended to corner fast too. (Never fell off though in my ten years of ownership.)

    front brake pads last that long?

    I've change them last 2 12K services and although good, they had less than 30% on them.

    Moderately fast rider/braker, mostly city traffic but I belt it in the mornings on my way to work.

    I've clocked 30000 kms so far.
