Brake Pad Replacement

So what sort of mileage are some of you getting out of your brake pads, front and rear? I'm closing in on 8,000 miles now, and I'm wondering how soon I'll need to replace the pads. I haven't noticed any odd noises or sensations from my brakes, nor experienced diminished stopping power. And on that note, what warning signs should I be looking for to let me know I'm due for new pads?

i replaced my fronts around 8,500 miles and then replaced both front and rear recently around 17,000 miles. it's super easy to do... just unbolt the retaining pin on the caliper and the pads almost fall out by themselves in the front, the rear i needed to unbolt one of the caliper bolts to pivot the caliper to let the pads out. i used OEM pads and changed my brake fluid as well using a MOTION PRO mini brake bleeder.

fronts:

i could have gone maybe another 1000 miles on these.

rears:

these were ready to come out... see the wear indicator channel in the middle of the pad worn flush?

I haven't checked the pads on my CBR but the ones on my CRF are still okay after 30,000 km.

I'll replace them at 36,000 km and change the fluid then, too.

If you wait till you hear odd noises you have left it too late and will have worn the pads down to the metal. The odd noise you will hear is the metal backing of the pads scoring the discs. You will then be lucky if you don't need to replace the discs and pads.
The only warning signs are to visually inspect the pads and when the grooves have disappeared you should change pads asap
