Brake pads?


I just took my Tbird in for the 1 yr service... I was told that I only had 20% of my rear pads left and 80% on the front...

I know it depends a lot on how you drive, but what kind of mileage can you expect out of a set of pads?

Now, after I got my bike home from the service... it was making a lot of noise... I thought it was the belt so I took it back... they checked it out (good) and found that my rear disc is 20,000 out of line... they say that is what caused the pad to wear out so quickly...

Whats your opinion?
