oh thanks guys. I appreciate the messages! even the cranky craggy ones.

I hade the brakes bled, new rotors and new pads on. I have never had these brakes work soo good!
I think they guy that bled them did it with the 2 syringe method.... because I have never had any bike shops in Canada get it this good. The mexicans know how to do it! (100 pesos for a bled of the front and back plus install all the new parts) I also did the rotor spray it does work but it doesn't get it all out and after a few rides it goes right back to honking.

You can't salvage pads, I would like to see you come to the rocky mountains and descend 20 km with salvaged pads.

Also I think that what happens is that the mineral oil sweats a bit when the bike is not in use and contaminates the pads over time.

Now I agree XTR is Awesome! I will hang in there.
Thats how I ROLL!
