You only need brakes if you go fast . . .

typically four 80mph to 5 and two 100mph to 5, depending on the pad, will also be necessary to raise the system temperatures during break-in to the range that the pad material was designed to operate at.


No no. This link is useless since the below has never happened to Garry......so 'Break in" would never have been possible. Hence why the warping

We are never "short" on ideas
Use my feet! , that would be ok, if I could get both feet on the ground!

I will grab some carnet paper and see if that works, treadless recommended that a while ago, I just need to do it!
Then make an appointment with speedypunk to get them broken in

No. I've taken temp reading at different places on the diff and of other diff's and am getting a 3 degree max difference between my bike and one with 103k less miles. So if the bearing is going bad it's doing so without heat. The drive shaft repair is holding up nicely so far, So I'll continue to run it and gather parts for the upgrade as they come up in a price range that Mr. Cob would approve of.
