I need some opinions on new break pads. Mine are running thin.
It depends on riding style, weight of bike, etc. Might be too soon, but better check before they eat your rotor. Front usually go first. Most pads have a wear indicator. I'll try and draw a picGautamCity said:this question is going to sound retarded....but, how do you know when to change the pads? I have 9,600 miles (i think) on my bike, and I doubt the guy before me ever changed 'em, and i never changed 'em. they don't pulsate, grind, or squeal at all. is it just too soon still? do the pads last a long time like they do on cars...i'm sure it does depend on riding style too.:confused
EBC Make HH Street pads as well and as I understand it they are the same except the street pads carry DOT certification, meaning more $$ and are therefore street legal. My HHs do take additional heat up time but don't make noise. I used to run the greens on the racebike before the HH came out....what a mess, dust everywhere:madI haven't tried the EBC HH pads, I have Vesrah pads on the track bike and like them a lot. Stock Honda pads are great. I'm leary of race pads for the street (not sure if that's what EBC HH pads are), normally they take a little to heat up and then grip even more.
Are these pads on my gsxr??? if so they kick ass, great feel quick stopping me like em... :cheersSteve Karson said:I know this sounds stupid but, I have no idea. The team owner just gives me the pads and I put them in, I never looked to see what they were called, I just know they work fantastic. We're racing in Texas this weekend and I'll make sure to get the exact info and I will post it on Sun. or Mon.
