My rear pads were fine at 6K service. The rear disc, however, was 4.89 mm. Assuming it was at the specified 5.00 mm when new a loss of .11 mm in 6K miles seems like a lot. New rear rotor at 22K miles? It will be interesting to see how things are at the 12K service.

7000km Rear pads replaced under warranty
11000km Rear pads replaced under warranty

There seems to be something wrong with my rear breaks.
(According to my dealer one of the pads got 'stuck' in both occasions...)
I'll have to monitor closely...

Sounds like the pin is not being lubed, or you have sticky pistons in the caliper.

All parts of the brake-unit where cleaned, lubricated, checked and tested by the mechanics...

Don't know whether i can "do" something to prevent the pads from getting stuck?
Not that i should "do" anything but making shore to keep all clean

If they did all that correctly your brakes should wear evenly. Obviously they are doing something wrong.

Just replaced my original rear pads on my R1200GS at 24,000 miles with EBC double H pads. Dealer wanted over $100 bucks for stock pads but also offered me the EBC pads for $38.95. EBC pads are working well.

I emailed EBC on Sunday asking them to help clarify the appropriate brake pads for the GSW but have not yet received a reply. Can anyone throw me a simple bone, answering which EBC pads are the correct ones? I've seen the suggestions from previous posts and there is some discrepancy on the rear pads.

EBC FA2092HH
or
EBC FA363HH


Not trying to be spoon fed but EBC has not yet replied and I'm running out of time with my rear brakes.

Thanks all,

Cheers!

EBC FA363HH are the correct pads for a 2009 R1200GS

ok fellas, an inspiring reply from EBC...

"For the front of the bike we offer our double-H rated sintered brake pads, part number FA630HH. Our HH rated sintered pads have similar characteristics to the stock sintered pads, however our sintered pads are less abrasive on the rotors. Sintered pads are preferred on these bikes as they offer prompt stopping power and last much longer than organic pads. The rear brake pad part number in our sintered compound is FA209/2HH."

Enjoy!

I recall that one magazine rated Lucas pads very highly for the GS...can't seem to find a source that sells them...Can anyone help with that and the part number?

IS this for the 2014 R12GS/GSA?

I don't doubt these are appropriate for 2013, as well but yes, that reply was a response to my inquiring about the '14 GSW. The "A" throws me a bit. Im not sure about those.

Hope that helps!

well I hope rms56 is correct because that is what I ordered after recieving this reply from EBC. Oh and this was after sending the question 2 times in a 2 week period.

Hi Bob,
Sorry I can’t verify what part numbers are needed for the R1200GSW. The only listing we have for 2013 are the R1200R and R1200RT. I attached a diagram of the pads to see if the GSW uses the same. FA294 was the most commonly used front pad and FA363 was the most commonly used rear for 2010 to 2013 BMW’s.

Best Regards,

Really impressive that they don't even know what pad the bike needs....
