    front pads parting company..

    had a clunk when reversing and dabbing the brakes i had a suspicion of the offender and i confirmed it today the friction material of one of the pads has parted company with the back plate

    this has happened twice over the last 9 years with the previous textar pads and this time with the febi pads

    a fookin waste as the pads have loadsa meat on them still, but they are feckin bin fodder now

    Considering that barring the engine and a couple of extra mm disk diameter they are 90% the same as the rest of the range the probably cost the same near enough as the rest of the range to upkeep but at least you have a 330
