Hey, having my rear brake pads re-done here In Thailand but need to know what the proper thickness should be.



I know the shop has 5.5mm Asbestos in stock. Will that work?



Thanks

Thanks.



Ya I do mean the shoes. Perhaps I should have been clearer, but 1/4" equates well to 5.5mm so I hopefully will be OK.


You were probably fine with what you said but the only people that would know the answer if it isn't in the manual is the people who have recently played with a set. And I just so happen to have a set in a box and one in the corner. I bought new ones to replace the ones on the bike last fall because I thought they were low but it turned out that they weren't that thick at all and the lever attached was in the wrong position. I may just have to put them back on because the new ones I have suck and squeak badly.
