What's .net's favirote brake pads? - February 17, 2009, 12:29 PM

I need to swap out the pads on my liter bike soon. Maybe 1 or 2 hard rides left on them.

I plan to change out to steel braided lines and maybe rotors as well when I do this..

Suggestion's based off experience?

Street pads are fine for street, race pads will wear much more quickly. Vesra, Ferodo, EBC, are all adequate.

vesrah RJL/SRJL's. Ferodo XRAC's are pretty decent too. I had HRC pads on my 600 last season, when I ran out of those I panicked as I'd never ridden anything with brakes that strong, I put a set of XRAC's on, they were great, but not as good as the HRC pads, the SRJL's were fantastic though, lasted well and provided ridiculous stopping power

Confusing the issue, since before you were ugly.

Then I would agree with zx6rfool, Vesrah RJL, and def better lines rubber lines are good for street but flex too much in heavy braking/track situations

Maybe a little biased here but I prefer supporting your local dealer!! As a consumer, I prefer talking to a person and being able to deal with that same person if I have an issue.
