Brake maintenance is very important. 

Always make sure your brakes work before each use. 

As your KOMOTO M1100 ages you will need to adjust the brake pads. You can find how to here

  • Brake pads will wear out over time.
  • Replace brake pads once a year/season or when no longer have any pad left. 
  • If you can not adjust your brakes anymore then it is also time to replace your brake pads. You may hear grinding noises at the end of your pads life or poor performance.
