You are right I did not do the rotors on my 90 as I had it done at a shop. After removing the rotors on the 110 and repacking the bearings I knew the mess and didn't want to be bothered. Time vs money thing. Also after having the rear drum brakes apart on the 110 I realized I don't like brake cleaner. Sure it makes a great lube for jerking off but not really fun to inhale. The key you seem to want to gloss over is I didn't open it all up, see the rotors were shot and put it back together and go on my merry way to drive for months and months.

As for the tires, I am seriously waiting for 4 new km1s. My spare is brand spanking new.

Barry,

Not to defend Josh but his pads where shot, not his 4 rotors. The (1) rotor was in bad shape yet still thick enough. We removed the pads after dark (and after work) and slid in a new set.

It was not "all apart", as you know you can change pads by only removing the wheel and a few pins.


He will post pics soon.

Sadly, the really good picture opportunities are the times when the most grease is in/on your hands!

I think Barry got it wrong. Synthetic grease is much better than brake fluid.

Oh I know not all his rotors were shot. He posted one was shot but then left it for 8 months. That is the part in question. I am sure horsey is a great mechanic.

I need a new signature
