rear brake seized


Ive just replaced the rear pads on my bike only after a few weeks
because spa (me)never cleaned the pots when I changed them last. I was in derrynane when the pad was now metal
and had scoured the disk.My question is the disc is fairly well rutted but theres pleanty of width left 5mm ,should the disc be replaced or will use iron things out and smooth out the disc over time or will the scratches maks shit of me new pads ???
THanks in anticipation JOhn
If the discs are badly rutted they'll make mincemeat of your new pads. Either replace the disc or get it reground (if it's thick enough) at an engineering workshop.
