    Dont be flippant.

    I would estimate my brake bias is 80/20 front, rarley use the back apart from on steep downhills where im 90/10 on the rear. I bought ktm front and rear pads from mounters and they have lasted over 2 months PAS rears:- 2 weeks, but then again the front is wearing normally. Gonna grab another set from mounters and see how they wear on the new disc.

    I've only just changed the discs this week, and cleaned everything. nothing binds, no warps, and all moves freely, but the KTM pads had no issues and lasted just fine, these didn't, but the front pads do. Its plain odd, I can only put it down to material inconsistencies in the batches perhaps.
