Guy phone's in and books a service, say's the brakes are not working well. Haven't worked well in months.

I'm thinking, "Well why wait 3 months to bring it in dumbass?"

Bike shows up on Saturday, I see it this morning. WTF????

Have a look at the pics, tell me what you see.

what kind of bike?

It's a Yamaha of some sort. And it will be needing new caliper, rotor(s), and pads. What a fucken tool. How hard is it to peek at your god damned brakes?

The sound of scraping metal would be a good indicator...

Yeah it was metal on metal 3 months ago, and the tool kept driving on it. You'd be thinking....Hmmm dumb kid, some chick...nope. Middle aged man.

Guy is dumb for not doing anything about it sooner, but those BWS scooters eat through front brake pads like crazy.

he would never live it down

did he brag about how many miles he got out of his pads , backing , piston and rotor

i saw a good 1/2 inch left on the brake piston , geez he could have got another 5 months out of it

Wow, and this guy's paying you to fix his bike? Crazy. Even after he or his friends read your posts....awsomeness. Good thing the owner isn't a "chick", not sure she'd be able to handle the explanation on what was required to fix everything. You are a hero PeeWee. The ultimate standup guy. t
