2003 Honda 919 - flapper mod, Clear Alternatives Smoke Tailight w/ integral turn signals, Stebel Nautilus air horn, DIY fender eliminator, LED license plate bolts, LED front turn signals, no resistor or new flasher so I blink like crazy.

Me thinks Lemonhead is changing his pads too soon.

Post a pic so the more educated wrenches (that's everyone other than me) can lend and opine.

brake the glaze

I'd sand the pads then clean them with brakekleen and maybe hit the rotors with a scotch brite pad and rubbing alcohol.If you have less than 3mm of friction material get new oe pads from a member.

How much trouble is brake fluid on the pads? I got some on the pads when I was swapping in the SS lines.
