do a inspection of your brakes when you change the oil in your bike, when they get past 1/4 of the pad left replace them as said before. I worked my stock ones for 12,000 miles and they were SHOT. depending on riding conditions (city/highway) changes how long they last.
Before you just buy brakes chat with Beartooth Kawasaki about what brakes that they carry and their prices. Just like cars and different bikes there are different brakes for the way you ride, and in the weather that you ride in. It would be a diferent pad in southern California versus the ones that I had in Seattle, Washington because of difference in weather conditions for the same bike. If you are on the Interstate most of the time, city most of the time, and depending upon the typical weather conditions. Just like which plugs should you use. The book says...yeah...yeah...If you are riding 6 miles from your door to work at maybe 45 mph and it's winter, you need a different plug than one that you would use in the summer riding from San Diego to Los Angeles, CA everyday. I'm exagerating ??? NO, I'm not! Brakes, next to tires are the most important thing on your bike. the greatest brakes in the world aren't worth a cent if your tires aren't working for you.
