Front Brake Pads
« on: July 20, 2014, 06:55:14 AM »
Hi, as I now reached 6000km, I should replace the front brake pads. Do you know which type I should order? On the brake "SK27" is written, but it does not help me that much.

Thanks
- Rano

Seems early.

The Enertia Plus Manual only suggests to inspect the pads at 1000 km and every 6.4 km afterwards (p.37).

Are the pads badly worn already?

Hello

Now I changed the brake pads. It really has been the right time - less than 1mm remaining.

Thanks to Gerhard - my dealer - who ordered the pads.

But U-OH! at what a price! More than 80€! Seems to be sent from Europe to the States, and back to Europe! Globalization at its best  >:(

In order to help for cheaper ordering in the future-
Brake Pads from Brembo are FER4402 or now from Galfer: G1651

Although, these are definitly not the correct ones

And also the Galfer page showes other dimensions.
138A331 should be the dimension for Galfer and
http://www.telgesparts.de/07001-brembo-brake-pad-standard-p-639.html
639 for Brammo. See the difference in price! 21€! :P

OK OK it seems that I stated the material, not the dimension.

Just in case someone else reads this.

Hi, an Update

The sintered brake pads from Galfer showed a bad braking performance and produced a scratching noise. After 2000 km I decided to change to sintered brake pads from Premiere.

Yes, everything is fine now!  :D

Hmm... I googled Premiere brake pads and found nothing. Is this a manufacturer? A reseller? Model number? Online link?  Thanks.
