    fork oil all over hayes pad

    Yesterday my fork blew a seal and oil leaked all over my hayes brake pads. I have soked them in alcohol but given the pores nature of the pad should I just order new ones while I am waiting for my fork parts?

    Thank you for your comments. --Tom

    I replace them, as it is not worth the worry.

    However, there will be riders saying you can bake them in the oven, or heat them with an open flame to cook out the oil. The responses will be interesting.
