I just bought the bike a few weeks ago and only have 700 miles on it. The dealer did the brake recall and replaced the pads before I picked it up so I certainly hope the pads don't need replaced already.
We shall see what they say. ...

I was gonna use that but didn't think it would stay on.
I'm thinking good ol red wheel bearing grease will do the trick!

Of course there's always the risk of some nitwit taking you at your word, then suing you when he plows head-on into a bus at the first intersection he gets to.

Now that I think about it...maybe I should go clean the WD off my brake pads.
