I've replaced my front rotors and pads myself. front rotors should be less than $100 each. All rotors are made out of country, Mexico, China or South Korea. I've had very good luck with out of country "cheap" rotors on all my vehicles.


The thing about brake pads are some do not have stainless steel anti squeal plates on the back. I've tried the silicon anti squeal goop on the moho with out a lot of success, it wears our really fast, so I spend the extra money for the brake pads with the steel anti squeal plates. With the plates should be about $90 per axle, don't go cheap on these.


Time, most of the time is going to be spent replacing the rear rotors. On my moho you must pull the rear axles, unless they have changed the design. It is a PIA and some hard work for an old guy like me! So, I'm guessing here, but sounds like they at charging you retail on the parts to make up for the shortage on hours from the flat rate book. Do you have a pix of the rear rotor set up?

Just to add another data point:

On a recent trip, my new TPMS alerted me to a sticking caliper and resulting hot valve stem. There was still pad material left on the original brakes at 100,000 miles but, obviously, it was time for service. I was gonna do the job myself but, at age 78, decided to have complete brake service done at a local shop that I have used for years.

4 new rotors
4 re-manufactured calipers
Premium pads
Brake hoses
Repack front wheel bearings
Spark plug wires
Dist cap & rotor
