    Yes, if the pads are worn, he should have noticed it.

    Do you have the owners manual / shop manual so YOU can inspect the bike your self? The owners manual is made NOT for mechanic's but for what an average owner can do / should do...

    Should you need it, PM me with an e-mail address, year bike and I'll send a PDF copy to you...

    Did you jack up and spin the front tire?
    It was happening before the tire replacement and thus why I thought it was bearing and got that replaed.

    Havent had chance to spin front wheel but do have the manual thanks.

    I guess I can replace the rear pads - where do you recommend buying pads from?

    I use Partzilla and use OEM pads. Seem to last long (26,000 on my rear pads presently) and fit WILL be correct.
