I have 15000 miles on my 2017.

Front pads have a lot of life left.

Rears were replaced at the 10000 mile service, and will likely need to be replaced before to 20K service- at 10K, they were toast, and I never checked them prior to the 10K service- never had a set of pads (front or rear) wear out that fast).

Now, on this bike, I expect early replacement and keep an eye on them.

I’ve my tiger since March 1st this year. Now after 16.500km the bike will bevserviced and I told them to check the rear brakepads. I bought the bike with 8000km on it. So now after almost 25.000km the brakepads needs to be replaced. Front still good.

yep its a know thing that Explorers eat front tyres and rear brakes.

I assumed it is the linked brakes.  Luckily they are easy to change.

4500 miles i had a new front and rear pads, nice to know im not the only one !
