    Brake discs
    « on: 2014-12-16 18:30:55 »
    Had a recall done on the GT Sport today and they did a health check and reported that the discs (not pads) are at 5mm and the limit is 4.5mm. Anyone know what they start off at and how long .5mm will last at sensible ish riding.[/size]Bike has 7000 miles on it.

        Can't answer your question but will observe answer when it arrives from someone. My replacement GTL has done only 4600 miles but noticed today that discs have worn already. If yours reach limit of 4.5 by say 8500 miles then that seems odd to me and I would have thought they would last a lot longer than that. I'm certain I'll get a lot more miles as am big user of engine breaks

          If you look in Real OEM it shows the front discs are 5.00mm at birth.

              Apologies for the delay in posting this.

              My front is coming in at 5.20mm which surprised me if they are only 5.0mm when new!




              And the rear is coming in at 6.03mm



              I triple checked this measuring at different points of each disk and the result was consistent. Hopefully this helps.
