Have you noticed that you only get about 5Kmiles from your rear pads? I use my rear brakes quite a lot, but it seems I should be getting better mileage. I found when I put on EBC pads, the rears are wearing much better, but the fronts look like they will only go 5K.

I am trying some sintered pads I bought on Ebay. $18 shipped for a full set (both calipers) of pads.
My rear pads lasted 9K which does seem to be pretty poor to me - I don't think I ride with the rear brakes on or anything stupid like that so I'm really not sure what the issue is. I fitted EBC HH pads so we'll see how they go.
