Re: What is the best way to check if brakes need changing
1- to check the brake pads you test if there is any anormal noise when you brake when riding normally the vehicle.
2- you can check the pads taking out the Two wheels and see the thickness of those. bee carefull with the heat if you stopped just before. be careful also with the thickness of the bake disc. sometimes they 've less thickness than it should have !
3- about the thicknessof the pads, depends if it is ventilated disc or not. if is not ventilated, about 4mm of pad its safer to substitute.
4- don't forget , safety in first place, ALWAYS.
