Question Brake pad delamination?

I was recently on a trip through NY and CT and while on the ferry from Orient Pt looked down and saw what looked like brake pad material near my front tire. I tried the front brake and it was soft. Later i changed the pads and found one pad had lost its pad material.
Pads were factory original on a 2010 990 adv.
Ever happen to anyone else?

Wow, I've never seen that before. Since they were stock pads I would send the photo to both the dealer and KTM. If the adhesive or assembly process was defective, it's a serious safety issue.

Brakes worked OK like that btw- I did try to source new pads on the road but that turned out to be hard to do on a saturday afternoon (with the usual bike store closed sun/mon). Sounds like an isolated thing with that particular pad, but I will send to dealer etc.

ditto on never seen before,a least your saw it before disc/piston was damaged?......wouldnt expect ktm would honour items deemed "wear",even they should sometimes.Maybe give the oem supplier of the pads a email,sure they will/would be more than interested on why it failed.

Had it happen on a car, while using the questionable method of a screwdriver to pry apart the pads to make room for a new disc, plenty of "meat" left on pads so was going to reuse when the "friction" parts just feel off one of the pads.

Not on any motorcycle ...yet.

Rear pads

Had it happen on my SE with 700 miles when new. Was riding the local vintage MX track going down the fastest section on hit the brakes and nothing, went shooting off the track Never put a set of stock pads back on the rear after that. But I'm a terrible brake dragger when trying to go fast on a track.
