I have been told that excessive chain lube is the culprit for reduced pad life, especially on the single sided swing arms like my Sprint ST 1050. I will put up with the reduced pad life for a well lubed chain. I have been happy with my 06 Tiger and 06 Sprint. Wife has told me I should sell my XR650L and buy a Tiger 800XC. I have a very smart wife.
