    Rear brake pads.

    DO NOT INSTALL SINTERED METAL BRAKE PADS.
    I ran sintered bronze pad when I had my Goldwing, better braking, longer lasting, with only slight rotor wear.
    When it came time for new rear pads on my GTL I went with EBC sintered metal pads. Big mistake.
    They only lasted about 5k. miles and wiped out the rotor in the process.
    Talked to my dealer about it, why would they work good on a Goldwing and not on a GTL.
    It turns out that BMW runs a lot higher pressure then a wing.
    New rotor, mount bolts,and pads, about $550. Expensive lesson.
