what your talking about which does translate to driving cars

Cars?....Cars?.....Who mentioned cars?.........I was referring to the prime mode of wheeled excitement to which nothing can compare, motorcycles. :P ::) ;D :)

just put the other set of ebc pads in the back brake, the old resin pads were lacking somewhat, i found out that the old pads were seriously low, on this pad/caliper design the return spring is 2 wide u shaped thin spring metal joined at the closed end, the metal is less than .5 mm but the friction material was down to it :-[
i rubbed down the disk with coarse sand paper (in a circular motion to prevent groves) put a blob of copper slip on the back of the pads to prevent squeaking.
as for the front pads, 28 miles and 9 big hills the pads are now well bedded in (they seemed to bed in and give full braking after 6 miles and 2 big hills and heavy braking) sinterd pads have a reputation for taking an age to bed in but with these ebc pads they bedded in faster than the resin pads.

this is a pic of one part of one of the hills i have to get up

it does not show too well in the pic but that corner is like a step, there is 4 bollards between the 1st and the 4th is over 6 foot in height (google earth says its closer to 9 feet :o)
this is the S bend at sprotbrough falls from the bottom lay-by to the top lay-by is about 60m in a straight line but 10m in hight (32ft)

Looks like a great 'knee down' bend that!

Do you get many motorcyclists playing on it?
