Ok so you need brake pads (not shoes).... That's a start, are you drag racing your busa? Is there a problem with the stock brake pads that you are trying to remedy? If it's just a street bike I'd suggests you just order the stock brake pads, they're fine, or pretty much anything else, unless you are experiencing a specific problem pretty much any of them will work fine.

Ive gone thru a lot of pads lately. I probably wouldn't use vesrah on the street. They work to good. I might choose something like DP brakes for the street because of how they feel. Vesrah stop on a dime and on the street that would mean wheel slide on slick oil infested streets.

Comments?

Not using a brake pad because it stops "too good" is just wrong thinking.

You should be able to modulate any pad. If you can't, you need to learn how to ride properly.

I'm in need of front pads pretty soon as well. I was going go get Vesrah RJL's over EBC HH just because my SV's stock brakes aren't all that great from the start.

Wonder if I could find some RJL's locally?
