Team, I know this might go like a tyre or oil thread, but would like to know your experience with brake pads as I need to renew them. Any advise appreciated!

Rene,

I've recently fitted EBC HH pads to the rear of the outfit and I was so impressed with them that I've just bought a set for the front.

Thanks team, I was wondering about the EBC HH, so guess that is what goes on. Have you got the number by any chance?

Anyone know how the HH pads wear the K100 rotors? I think I read somewhere that sintered pads eat SS rotors; organic pads were supposed to be better in the rotor wear department but with less stopping power than HH pads and more brake dust created.

This us what I found...

What Compound Suits you?
Find what pad suits you by looking up your type of bike, along with the type of riding you mostly do.


BIKE COMPOUND
100-500cc Road Bikes
Commuting: Organic
Standard Brake Performance: Kevlar
Advanced braking and riding: Sinter
Occasional Track Visits: Sinter Sport (Coming Soon)
Track or very aggressive riding: Sinter Ultra (HH) (Coming Soon)
High Powered Sports Bikes
Daily Commute: Kevlar
Advanced braking and riding: Sinter
Aggressive braking and riding: Sinter Sport (coming soon)
Occasional/casual track use: Sinter Ultra HH (coming soon)

Cruisers
Daily Commute: Kevlar
Long Trips: Sinter

Organic Compound -
The daily commuter
pad, a low budget alternative for the riders who tend to ride A to B
when excessive braking is not required. Not suitable for high powered,
heavy or offroad applications.

Kevlar Compound - A step up from
Organic, delivering great performance and a great pad that caters for
all bikes. Kevlar sits well as a commuter pad on high powered bikes and
great performing pad on lower cc bikes.

Sinter Compound - For every motorcycle
enthusiast who wants braking performance. These pads are designed for
rough treatment whether its in wet muddy conditions, or on a downhill
climb on a high powered road bike or cruiser.

Sinter Sport Compound- A step up from
the sinter compound, delivering even more 'bite' for the aggressive
riders who like to take corners hard, mountain tours or the occasional
track visit. A great pad for the advanced rider.(coming soon)

Sinter Ultra HH Compound - The highest of our range, for the rider who can't get enough of the track.

I hope this helps.

Interesting thought robmack,

I fitted my rear brake with a new EBC floating disc when I put the HH pads in so they should be compatible.

Today I fitted the front HH pads but I've still got Grimeca SS discs so I will see how they wear.

But I fancy a pair of floaters for the front so it could be a blessing in disguise if the SS discs wear out quickly Rolling Eyes

Paul.

Well I've clocked up over 400 miles since I fitted the front pads last Wednesday and, now they have bedded in to my discs, there is quite a noticeable improvement in performance, so I think the HH pads will be my choice in future.

Paul.
