Un-even brake pad wear

Recommended Posts

Ok, I read the FAQ's and did a search but didn't see anything that answered my questions. If I missed it, color me stupid. Anyway.... I have an '06 CRF 450 and noticed the rear brakes squeaking after my last ride. The rear pads are worn, but only the inside pad. It is almost down to the metal, but the outside pad looks almost new. I've checked the disk and it is not warped or groved that I can tell.

Questions:

1. Is it normal for the pads to wear in such an un-even manner?

2. Replacement Pads. What's better? Non-Metalic, Sintered, Carbon? Brand?

Thanks in advance for the help.

I wouldnt recommend grease, cause if it gets in the pad, it will cause the pad to crumble. Try never-seez, it doesnt effect brake parts and it lasts waaay longer
