I took my bike for a PA state inspection and the owner said the front brake pads would just barely pass inspection and I would need new ones before long. I thought this seemed odd because they hadn't been on near as long as the first set........ I figured the Galpher green just wore out really fast so I ordered 2 sets of EBC..... Tonight i took the Galphers off and they were almost the same thickness as the EBC ones I was getting ready to put on...I was WTF is going on. I don't have a tool to give an accurate measurement, but my guess is the replacement pads are coming in almost wore out according to state inspection specs...... anyone else run into this?
