    Muscle Low Rise Backrest Pad

    Just got the first batch of low rise bars ready with the new pads. This can be done on an exchange or outright. Email me for more details. This will require the OEM backrest and the low bar can be used in place of the tall bar. Will get a pic of one mounted up when I can. Sean

    Uneven pad wear.

    About 4 months ago I changed my rear brake pads. At that time I noticed that the pad wear was exceedingly uneven, with one pad barely touched and the other almost gone. This morning, pulling my rear wheel for a new tire, I'm seeing the same radically uneven wear occurring, to the point where I...
