Re: brakepads??

i'm using ferodo xracs. i've heard good things about vesrah rjl pads, too. i'd also suggest replacing ur stock brake lines with something steel braided. if u wanna spend a little extra $$, i can hook u up with someone that can probably get u a great price on fren tubo carbon lines but they're still gonna be more than anything else...

Re: brakepads??

Definitely consider some stainless steel brake lines for the front of the bike. As the stainless steel lines will help reduce brake fade and give you more feel in the brake lever.

As far as brake pads everyone has there preferance. Here is a good discussion on some brake pads.

Re: brakepads??

The ferodo pads have amazing initial bite. I put them on after a set of galfer and almost put myself over the handlebars on the front straight.

Re: brakepads??

dont buy EBC, GARBAGE!!!!!!

Vesrah RJL pads are great (if u can find them)
i recently switched to Galfer HH pads as i couldnt find my regular Vesrah pads, i have yet to try them.

a nice set of stainless brake lines, good pads, and fluid w/ a high boiling point (i prefer Motul RBF600) really makes the bike stop well.

Re: brakepads??

Sbs on my 2 bikes, make sure you get stainless lines to, will make a huge difference to the lever feel.
