We all don't want to know what happens with your 'girlie week off'!!!!

But, on the other hand - I always throught that my rear ones were just crappy, but didn't realise that all the time, i slightly tap the rear brakes without knowing it. Apparently it was just the incorrect rear brake set up for my feet.

Wrong pad material, make sure your using sintered pads not organic for wet muddy/sandy conditions. OEM pads always wear the best though.

I buy the Tusk sintered ones from RMATV @ $17 or the cheapest sintered ones off ebay about $25. It does depend on the conditions but I can get about 2 to 2500 kms from them. My original Yamaha pads went for 4000kms. Limited Beerburrum rides though.
