    Yeah, it's front brake pads - but worth a visual inspeciton as sometimes the sensors can play up.

    I run TAROX pads and discs and find they bite really nicely and offer a good deal of feel

    the wire often snaps giving a false low pad light.

    you can short the plug out to clear it after inspecting how much actual pad you have left

    As mentioned above, it could be the pad behind the disk thats worn.
