How often should I check…?

Disc Brake Axle Inspections

Hey there,

We’ve been receiving some questions as to how often you should be inspecting your disc brake equipped axles.

Recommended practices advise that you should be taking a look at the state of your brake pads and rotors every 5,000km. Some guys like to go a little longer but a good rule of thumb is to check that stuff out every 5,000km to prevent any future issues.

Alignment of your axle should be checked every 20,000 miles / 32,000 km (or 3 months). In that interval its also good to take a look at the brake pad thickness. That’ll help identify if any seizing is happening with the calipers or not.

From there every 50,000 miles / 75,000km (or 6 months) be sure perform a thorough inspection of the entire disc brake unit itself. Again, you want to prevent anything unwanted from happening while on the road.

If you have any questions be sure to leave a comment or drop us a line!

Rudy & Phil out!
