The back brake rotor on my 2002 R1150GS was worn out, so I purchased a new rotor and pads from BeemerBoneyard. They went on with no problems. Fit great. But like an idiot, I decided to read the enclosed instructions. They said I had to "break in" the new pads.

The brake pads on your car press against the brake rotor, sometimes called the brake disc, to stop the car. Depending on your year and model, you might have rear disc brakes as well. While over time, brake pads will wear out faster than a brake rotor, the brake rotor will wear down far enough that it will need replacing. Reasons Brake Rotors

1. Noisy Brakes. One of the first symptoms commonly associated with bad brake rotors is noise. If the rotors are warped (meaning not perfectly flat) or severely worn, they may produce squealing or squeaking sounds. Usually, warped rotors will produce a squeak, while severely worn rotors will produce a scraping sound.

Measuring Rotor Thickness It's impossible to tell how much life is left on the brake rotors by simply looking at it. As a matter of fact, it's dangerously misleading! By simply looking at brake rotors, most rotors seem to be wearing fine unless there are cracks or huge chunks missing. However, that is where the huge misconception lies.

As suggested by many, if rotors are bad, replace them. No doubt in that. There is no point putting new brakes (pads) on bad rotors. This will cause your pads to wear out faster than normal, and also braking efficiency will also be affected. Better to replace both of them at the same time.
According to our AutoGuru experts, the average cost of replacing front brake pads and disc rotors starts around $300 and can increase to $700+, depending on the type of vehicle and the brake components used. It’s a similar story for replacing rear brake pads and disc rotors. At AutoGuru, we have plenty of tips and information on your brakes.
Most consumer vehicles don’t put excessive stress on the rotors, so slotted brake rotors aren’t necessary. One disadvantage of slotted brake rotors is that the brake pads tend to wear out faster versus pads on drilled brake rotors. Also, on average, slotted brake rotors are more expensive than drilled rotors.
The brake rotor spins on the hub as the wheel turns and provides a smooth surface for your brake pads to grab when braking. From the factory, rotors are machined flat and smooth, but over time, wear from the brake pads may cause grooves, “hot spots,” or general wear.
