My point was not about everything that needs checked on the bike. I think everyone knows it's best to maintain everything, but common sense says we all don't and also don't visual inspect every nut, bolt and grease point.
My point was simply that, unlike vehicle brakes, these KLR brakes do not have those little warning tabs before the pad is completely gone. The pads will function perfectly fine all the way to the last remnants of pad material and unless visually checked there is no sign or warning that they are almost gone.
I was just putting the warning out there for anyone else unaware of this.
