    In the few times I have emergency braked my 13 GSW on the road. I have felt the braking to be a bit wooden, are there softer pads that will pull the bike up quicker?

    Not sure, but I have a set of Carbon Lorraine pads from beemerboneyard waiting for the OEM pads to wear out and will report how I like them once they go on. I have them on my 2005 and like them.

    Yes, am keeping an eye on them, especially the back. I expect I'll replace them this year sometime.

    FYI: As i did complained to my dealer that after just 5700km my rear brake pads were about being worn out, he finally exchanged them with a new set under warranty.
    Dealer also told me there was no issue at all in replacing the Organic with Sintered pads for the rear brakes.
    Nothing written anyway :D

    My rear pads were fine at 6K service. The rear disc, however, was 4.89 mm. Assuming it was at the specified 5.00 mm when new a loss of .11 mm in 6K miles seems like a lot. New rear rotor at 22K miles? It will be interesting to see how things are at the 12K service.

    7000km Rear pads replaced under warranty :huh
    11000km Rear pads replaced under warranty :huh

    There seems to be something wrong with my rear breaks.
    (According to my dealer one of the pads got 'stuck' in both occasions...)
    I'll have to monitor closely...

    Sounds like the pin is not being lubed, or you have sticky pistons in the caliper.

    All parts of the brake-unit where cleaned, lubricated, checked and tested by the mechanics...

    Don't know whether i can "do" something to prevent the pads from getting stuck?
    Not that i should "do" anything but making shore to keep all clean

    If they did all that correctly your brakes should wear evenly. Obviously they are doing something wrong.
