Went to BMW dealer here in San Diego. Not a good experience. Unfriendly service folks and parts folks. No discounts for BMW owners club members. There was a safety recall on my GS that they took care off for free, but I had to pay for a loaner bike such that I could get to work....not good.

Of course they did their 15 point inspection to come up with a list of everything that was wrong with my bike:

All rotors are below minimum thickness (4 mm ?) The front rotors cost $372 a piece, the rear rotor costs $322. Rear brake pads $105. Does anyone know good aftermarket parts for these? These prices are ridiculous. I can buy a rotor for my car for $25 a piece, and then they are still making a profit, since they are made in China for less than $10. I am sure BMW has theirs made in China for the same amount. What a rip off

I've used EBC brake pads in the past. Worked as good as OEM. Don't know about rotors.

EBC pads is the way to go; around $30 a pair. Thanks.
