Right im back!
Sabotage I really like you and your post about your f3 but im sorry im going to be a a$$ now.
First of all if you read my post correctly you would know that I use both my front and rear brakes all the time I just replaced the rears as they were in need of a change so I don't know if you were reading the post through your little smart phone or didn't have your glasses on but you would know this if you have read the post with 20/20 vision.Have you ever done a motorcycle safety course?i doubt you have a license any good trainer will tell you to use both your brakes at the same time.
2nd.Do you know how to tell if a rider is a novice?a novice rider will "grab" a brake lever using 4 fingers a experienced rider will use two fingers to get his bike to stop smoothly.Im Not a Novice so don't talk to me like I am an idiot.
3rd.i don't think you know how to bleed a brake if you cant bleed a brake without a speed bleeder and you always get air from your brake lines then I suggest you go on youtube and check "How to bleed a motorcycle brake the right way" do you even know why our bikes are so hard to bleed?especially the front brakes cuz they have a 2 into 1 brake line system which is on any bike hard to bleed and will take some time as when bleeding a 2 into 1 brake line system the one caliper has to get full of brake fluid and all the air bubbles should be out then only will the second one get brake fluid and as soon as all of those air bubbles are out then the lever will start to get hard other wise if its spongy you still have air bubbles.
4th.i never bled my rear brake after I installed the pads so I don't know where you got that Idea.
5th.im not poor and I bought these pads as I wanted to test them out and FYI Here is a link on they're site stating which race teams they sponsor with pads,calipers and brakes lines.
GOLDfren Sponsored Racers and Teams
people should really start to understand if something is cheap it doesn't mean they are sh!t.
6th.next time.Go Do some research first before you try to "BASH' Me.Ohw and go learn how to ride a motorcycle.
Now Then Sabotage no hard feelings
And on another note Howzit Frank Good to See Your active still.
And Frank when I ride alone I almost always use my front brakes and engine braking like sabotage does only my fiancé commutes a lot with me almost every day so I use both brakes together as its more weight on the bike obviously just to smooth things out and not kill my front brakes so fast.i just put up this review as I think these pads get a bad reputation cuz everyone is told by a friend or family member that they are crap and those friends or family member never even tested the pads they just heard the same story from another friend or family member and so on which in the end that story that came from 50 people comes down to one man who didn't bleed his brakes properly and got weak braking because of it and to add to that they are cheap so no one even takes a second look at them.
Gunk Your Absolutely right.Using your rear brake in a corner I do that alot,keeps your hand on the throttle to exit a corner quicker as there are no delay as if you were to use you front brakes.
