kevlar brake pads - anyone? - April 14, 2009, 02:55 PM

..ever had those? would appreciate any reviews.

my main concern is are they good in the wet...the description says they are...but they slap a flavor on some pepto and it still tastes like ass.

Here is the description

Excellent compound designed to get maximum performance along with great durability. This KEVLAR pads are made of copper, alloy, tin, graphite and other metalic elements which are far superior to the metal powder mixed into standard organic pads, providing exceptional Stopping Power and Longer operational life. Perfect under all riding conditions: wet, dry, hot or cold. Excellent pads at an affortable price. Most popular choice.

I just ordered some of these and from what I understand they are pretty well liked all the way around... oh and remember you need to buy two sets of pads for the front...

1. Pepto original taste delicious
2. I normally dont get shot in the breaks so I wouldn't use them that much

Just slapped some of those in the Kaw recently. Big improvement over the stockers. Work really well hot or cold.

^^ grrrr...no stuffs for a 99

so I asked the seller who makes the pads...dude just told me they are "aftermarket" like EBC, Vesrah etc etc...FAIL

i like Vesrah, but my riding style doesn't warrant the full use for them ...but for $50....i may grab a pair if i can find'em...

I have Kevlar brake pads and a Kevlar street racing clutch for my 636 but have yet to install them. I'll install them as soon as i get the new bike ready to roll. (still need tags)

Are you seriously talking about "no name" brakes?

Will they not allow you to fall over at stop lights?
