What brake pads is everyone running this year?

Im looking to try something new this year. I tried the Performance Frictions last year and liked them, but looking for a little better initial bite.

I've got Vesrah race (RJL???) Whatever Mrs. Junge sold me when I told her I was racing an SV. They work great, especially with the stainless lines.

Get some Carbon Loriane's (sp), They say if you like Versah's these are better.

The Fred Flinstones are great for the track. If you're riding mainly on the street, I'd recommend the Barney Rumbles.

"includes 10 used-car dealers or auto repair shops, 11 liquor stores and bars--two of which advertise lingerie fashion shows and a third billed as a "gentlemen's club"--three cut-rate motels and one trailer park. The squat, brick municipal building is next to a currency exchange and a few steps from an adult video store. The bars open at 10 a.m. and close at 6:30 a.m."

I'm running pads in the front and rear brakes this year.
We'll see how it goes.

Hoping the addition of rear brakes will help minimize your chances of looping it at a buck forty this season?

Oh yeah - I'm slow, but the Vesrah's make me even slower.

Carbon Loriane's on the R6. I liked them at barber. They have good consistent bit all the time. I don't like a whole lot of initial bit.

Ferodo's on the ZX but those are on PFM cast rotors and calipers.

Vesrah RJL. Best value for the money. If after trying them for a day-you do not like them I will buy them from you at the same cost you bought them at. I am confident you will like them. Ask for your NESBA membership discount.


You can also try the SRJL. They come in two types. One is linier, more initial bite. The other is progressive, much like the PF pad. They run @$120/set. Expensive but they work.

I have tried Perforemnce friction, Vesreah, and EBC. I personally like the EBC kit pads. To me they have a lot better intial bite then the RJL's and that is what I like. The RJL's to me seem alot more progressive which may appeal to others.
