What are new ones worth! Look into it and ask yourself the same question.

rob_man, Feb 20, 8:31am
Wow! what does a set of 8 shoes cost to do!

jmma, Feb 20, 8:33am
$423.20at that rate (o:

twink19, Feb 20, 8:34am
how long do you think it took to do, plus linings, sounds cheap to me

afer_daily, Feb 20, 8:37am
there was no linings on the shoes when i took them in .

I would get in trouble posting a link, but lets say you were to search on a well known international auction site that starts with e and ends in for "YB125 Brake Shoe" you would find several sellers of brand new ones all at about $12US a set + shipping of about $12 US, making $24/us a set more or less.

Which is all good untill you get them here an find the US-spec shoes are slightly smaller or larger than the NZ-spec shoes.

No idea what they relined with or if it was problematic. Relining actually isn't that cheap for some things. I relined a clutch and it cost as much as the clutch did to begin with only I used higher quality facings.

did younotask them how much it was goingtocost before you got themtodoit!.

I've bought dozens of brake shoes, just go by OEM part number and use emgo or equivalent catalogue to confirm sizes/compatibility etc. No prob and usually deivered in days.

OP--I'm sorry I don't understand your issue. you got the brakes relined I guess because you had explored the other options in NZ. You would have got a price before you started.

Do BNT do the relining or send out! That could turn a $30 job into $100.

bitsy_boffin, Feb 20, 9:33pm
The ads there in particular include pictures and measurements and are from asia (Thailand specifically).As long as you have the old shoes in front of you, and a tape measure, it's easy to check such matters.

pinga08, Feb 21, 6:52am

aragorn2003, Feb 21, 7:05am
