Need Vesrah RJL & SRJL17 pad advice? - April 14, 2011, 10:59 AM

KurveyGirl is going to hook me up unless you folks have a better source??

My other question is; who has hands on experience with the RJL & SRJL17 pads? I may do a track day or two but they will be on the street more then anything. I'm leaning towards the SRJL17 but I figure I would ask the PRO'S before finalizing my purchase. lol

thanks, and .net....... howudoin......

Go RJL, SRJLs are more track oriented, and require a good amount of heat buildup before they brake very well. Even the RJLs will brake a bit wooden untill you have a few stops in them.

Aside from buying track side, or having a shop order them (RnR might carry them instock) Kurvygirl is a good place to buy them.

I loved the hell out of my RJLs, unless its a track only bike you will get better performance out of the RJLs

ZX6, Thanks. I guess anything is better then that stock crap I've been using for years.

Take back what I said, the 17 wasnt available when I bought my RJLs;

Here is Vesrahs chart, the 17s look to be great pads suited for the street. Even more initial bite than the RJLs.

ive been using RJL since 2005.
The difference is how you like your breaks applied...

RJL are used by most from street to track day to expert racers. AMA guys and Expert club racers I hear use SRJL and the XX brand.

I know how you ride and all and will recomend RJL hands down..

RJL gives you what you apply...they actualy seem to grow as they get how and the lever stays the same level vs keep coming in.

From what I heard from guys who use both...SRJL's have a harder intial BITE, then gradualy taper back..

I always use Curvy Gril also...prices just went up, but your Gixxer use to cost $80 a set until a few weeks ago, now I think its like $106????

I got mines just in time.

RJLs and SRJLs are a complete waste of money unless you are racing. Regular Vesrah street compounds work just fine. I have experience with all three compounds.
