Welcome to the forum. I have not but there are reports of people getting less the 500 miles out of their pads which would indicate a problem either with the master cylinder not allowing all the pressure to return or binding calipers. I would try and push the caliper piston all the way back in and if it goes easily, the master cylinder and piston are OK. Then look to the caliper mounts. They need to slide to self adjust

Had a problem with my CF500. Got 3Km from the trailer and rear brake smoking. Found the handbrake had been adjusted too tight when assembled at the shop, backed the adjuster off and all good since. Gave the workshop a serve when I got back.
