Totally Unnecessary B̶r̶e̶a̶s̶t̶Brake Examination

This weekend I did some more motorcycle maintenance. Guess which scenario is accurate:

It's a big motorbike with high performance brakes so I'm going to have to change the pads every 18 months. I ordered the pads, brake cleaner, and treated myself to a piston spreading tool. The job was easy and rewarding.

The wear indicator on the front brakes is hard to see. I wasted a load of money on tools and spares only to discover that when I dismantled the brakes I had plenty of friction material left. The only problem was that the sight-marks were covered up with filth.
