I put a new set on the front wheels of my MP3 500 and they are already down to the nubs. Never had pads wear that fast. Maybe it is because I now do much more in town riding than I used to?

I didn't make note. I am guessing under 1000.

Malossi Sintered Brake Pads are the ones that wore out in 6 months. I just purchased the Malossi Racing Brake Pads to try.

yeah racing pads don't last very long, they are made to wear fast but have great stopping power.

So the Sintered pads are also racing pads?
