Before y'all jump in with the torches flaming I know what a dodgy practice this essentially is. The correct approach is a thorough clean of callipers and discs with a set of new pads. Great, except this is a new bike to me and part of the reasons people buy second hand is limited finances. So, I'm skint and am just wanting to tide myself over for roadworthy after which time my first bit of cash will buy me some new sintered pads. So, back to the question.. There are solutions around that involve heating contaminated pads to burn off residual oil/grease. Can anyone chime in with any experience/tips as to how best to approach it beyond the obvious steps of whack em in the vice and torch away? The bike came with almost new SBS sintered pads which the seller had somehow got covered in oil - surely if there's a worthy contender for recovery it's pads such as these. Any input (even 'you're a fecken eejit') is welcome, thanks.
