I had my tires replaced on the motorcycle last year just before I put it into storage. This was at a well known dealership in Calgary. When I went to pay the bill the guy in the shop told me that I needed brakes as I had hardly any brake pads left. I advised him new brakes could wait for spring.
I took the bike into my local shop and asked them to look at the brakes. I really do not want to take any chances with motorcycle brakes. I asked them to book me in if they needed to be replaced. The mechanic took an up close and personal look. It turns out I have lots of usage left on my brakes and there is no need to get them replaced.
It never hurts to get a second opinion.
