I changed them because they were quite worn.
And no I don't ride with it on because,
(A) the wheel doesn't turn
(B) there is a red warning light
(C) I'm not stupid
I do keep it adjusted to eliminate any slack in lever so the pads are probably always slightly in contact with the disc, not enough to cause any drag but obviously enough to gradually wear them.
Anyway the purpose of my post was just to let others know there is a cheaper alternative to the Honda OEM pads if and when they need them.
So why do some people always feel the need to post negative replies ?
