    Any local dealer for brake pads?

    I pulled mine off cause they were noisy and found them pretty Shot. Anywhere local I might be able to get them? I have a big ride in a few days and use the bike for commuting. The rotor I'll address at a later date. It's a bit grooved, but not warped.

    I'm in the PNW area of the US.

    Find your local BMW shop. The pads cross reference with a bunch of BMW models. EBC part numbers for Front FA209HH and Rear FA266HH rear if EBC is your brand of choice. They should have them in stock.

    Found one day shipping from our amazon overlords. Thanks Jeff! I'll just have to take the cage to work tomorrow

    The left is the inside pad. The outside pad has plenty of material left

    Very typical wear pattern so you may want to flush the rear brake system.
    Cycle Gear carries the rear pad set in Galfor's but I don't like them as I am rear brake heavy and change the Galfor's when I change the oil. Best deal on pads can be either Amazon or eBay depending. I always have a complete set in the parts drawer. Rear EBC HH pads run about $30 and are used on a wide range of Euro bikes and some Harley Davidsons.

    Mine wears the inside pad just like that. To check the wear I have to use a small mirror and a pen light to see inside the disk/caliper gap. I just check the wheel side as the road side has never worn out first.
    Somehow the design of the caliper must have residual pressure after you release the brake. Even a very small time lag in achieving balanced inside to outside pressure would show assymetrical wear over the life of the pad. The supply goes in on the road side and I am unfamiliar with the hydrolic circuit in the caliper. A couple of tight 90 bends in the path would slow the response slightly.
    Lots of input on this forum about pads. All most as bad as an oil discussion.....
