Raptor 700

Hey guys, I'm helping a buddy of mine with his Raptor 700 and I know some of you have these or work on them. My ? is, we are having problems with the rear brakes wearing out fast. The caliper seems to be working free and not sticking. Is this common or can y'all point in the right direction . Thanks Wayne

The main reasons for short pad life are: cheap pads, caliper dragging, muddy sandy conditions, warped rotor.

Easy fix for cheap pads, buy good ones.
Caliper dragging- could be rubber hose also, not allowing pressure back to reserve tank.
Muddy/sandy- these conditions are like a sandblaster to your brakes and bearings.
Warped rotor- pretty easily seen.

Buy OEM pads and rotor,,, the 2010 up rotors are nice(wave style)

most common problem is park brake cable adjustment or air in the line
