I've only got about 7300 miles on it and it's been squeaking quite a bit under heavy or light braking just the same. Front brake and back alike. I do LOTS of engine braking, so I cant already need new brakes, do I?
shoot a little wd 49 on there
Took me 11000 miles to get to the point where I was at 60 percent wear then in less than 2000 miles it was in getting new pads. A lot depends on no much dirt you ride on or through. Dirt and gravel roads create a lot of dust on your brake discs and will wear out pads more quickly than riding on paved surfaces.
But it still requires visible verification. I meant there are no audible indicators like with car brakes.

Also, take a look at them when you have time based on the info provided because I'm fairly certain the pads are way less money/hassle to replace than the rotors will be if you let them go down to metal-on-metal P.S. There will be no mistaking that sound!!
