I all the GildWingMens.

The saw line on the OEM brake hardware is a warning when the change ?

I do not want publicity, I think the picture is excellent for my question.

Yes. When the "saw lines" are gone it's time to replace the pads. You should be able to see them without removing the caliper - if you can stand on your head with a flashlight in your mouth.

Sometimes you can use a mirror and flashlight and see a little better.
