Long life and perfect for FRANDO 9GA attached to TIGRA
This is the second pad replacement for a FRANDO forged caliper that is interchangeable with the OEM caliper that was put in shortly after the purchase of the new car. It is probably also available for the TIGRA OEM Caliper.
The same pad was used last time, and this is the second time. The mileage at the time of this exchange was 25,079 km, the last time was 6,000 km, so it seemed to have lasted about 19,000 km minus the difference. The pad that came with the FRANDOCaliper was replaced after about 6000 km, which is three times the mileage compared to that. Although it is a long life pad, it does not have high aggressiveness against the disc rotor or low coefficient of friction, which makes it difficult to work with. It may be due to the combination with the Vadal Disc Rotor, but it seems to fit in easily and braking power returned after a short distance.
What concerns me is the wear of the pin that holds the pad. This one has a noticeable with-stages wear at 25,000km. I made sure to get the dimensions right so that I could later use a lathe to make a stainless steel one.
