mine has done 6000 miles, still loads left on the original pads but I put a set of hh pads on, it totally changes the bike with brakes that bite, worhth wasting the origanals I think.

i totally agree, and the 55 i put on the back has made a massive difference

Totally agreed, with metzeler m7rrs in 190/55, I've never once seen the tc light come on when it wouldve come on regularly with the stock tires. But after 3kmiles my rear is close to toast (still better mileage than the stockers), I'm thinking about trying a 180/55 in the back to play with flickability. Ebc hh pads were an improvement, however it created an interesting predicament in the back for my non-abs model. With stock pads the rear was spongy and useless, with good pads i lock up the rear a lot. Learning not to use the rear so much or at all.
