Brake pads replaced to EBC fully syntered at 57400 kms. Will have to replace the brake fluid. Not able to get the 8mm transparent hose for bleeding at any of the nearest hardware stores. Have ordered in Amazon. will have to see if it will be of the correct size. It is too costly at showroom and the KTM showroom's service has become worse day by day. So even for this small job, very hesitant to give it to them.

The right side pad had some life left but the left side one was completely gone. Maybe for the next pad change, will get the calliper rebuild kit and get it done from some good fng outside.

Odo - 57500 Kms


Just regular work and friends meet runs. The brakes have been bed in. The braking is amazing. Much more confidence inspiring than the brembo's. The rear Apollo Alpha H1 is great on both wet and dry roads. The bike is itching to stretch its legs. It might happen in october.

After a long time, took the bike for a longish ride to my native.

Looking forward for longer rides in near future. Hope things settle down and start getting back to normal.
