    mintex are ok, but they smell funny after hard braking - a strange burning smell ...

    (compared to OEM pads)

    If it has one (LH side only i think) just cable tie it out the way. They're floppin useless anyway, i had the discs on my old R 100% over the wear indicator and it never went off.
