Hi guys. I was wondering... What kind of brake pads do I need for my rear wheel disk? I saw it has 2 brake sistem out there. My parts provider supply me only with front and just 1 set for the rear wheel. But obviously it has 2 calipers on the rear. Please advice!

One set is the parking brake - and as long as you never ride off with the parking brake engaged, those pads should never wear.

However, I used to have to replace the parking brake pads at least once a year....

You can get the parking brake pads from any dealer or the usual online sources.

Just bought some parking brake pads for mine - search for part number SFA257/2

They show up as being suitable for a number of applications, the particular ones I bought were shown as being for an Aprilia Mana 850, a Honda NC700, and a Kymco Grumbler 450 (whatever that is!)

Cost about 6 GBP, $8 USD from several places on eBay.
