It was time to replace the front brake disc and pads on my DRZ. While the rear pads still appear EXTREMELY chunky, the front pads were thinning. Also, the front brake disc were beyond its wear limits. Minimum thickness was supposedly 3.5mm, and my front disc measured 3.4mm!
I was lucky and picked up a brand new set of front rotor for cheap. Turns out that the seller had priced it wrongly, and decided to honour the sale. The price I paid for it was less than half that of what they would have usually sold it for. Well – lucky me!
