          I would not be surprised if you find what is supposed to be on that pad in the street out front of your house.

              Yeah that is a pad failure for sure then..... Glad that it did not happen at speed, or in a panic situation. If that was me, I would be on bended knee and thanking someone cause that could have been UGLY....

                  wow you need to change your braking habbits
                  my brakes wear just about even maybe 60-40 fronts over rear.
                  using brakes together is the only way to stop quickly and safely..not to mention the wear factor if you use them together you will get more miles out of both
                  i tend to use my rear mostly while downshifting and then use the front.for emergency stop im on both
                  oh and is the caliper hanging up on one side wearing the pads out more on one side than the other ..?

                    It does look like it is missing.

                      I never use the brakes unless it is both.

                        I favor the front, as it's nearly 70 percent of the stopping power on the bike, but in a quick stop, it's both, and fast........and I never skimp on pad quality when buying new, and I avoid ceramic pads also. they tend to eat and heat rotors quickly. The extra pad life isnt worth the rotor.....IMHO

                            I used the Z pads once on my old Road King...Never again. Not a bad brake up until the first time I rode in rain. Almost splattered in to the car that was well in front of me when I tried to stop and the brakes didn't. They sent me a new set but I wasn't that impressed. Tons of folks love them but not me. I hear the gold pads are better.

                              I've had real good luck with the HD replacement pads.... got 30k out of the first set, and the bike saw lots of loaded down runs and it pretty much lives in the mountains.
