EBC brake pads contain Aramid fibers, these are man-made high performance fibers, used widely for their light weight, high strength, abrasion resistance and thermal stability. They are used as reinforcements in ballistic protection (bullet---proof helmets and vests, vehicle armor), cut-resistant gloves, aircraft and marine structural parts, power transmission belts and of course friction products where their high strength to weight, thermal stability and abrasion resistance provide advantages over cheaper steel fiber based products.
Strong, predictable brake response and fingertip control
Gives you excellent stopping power without noise and rotor galling, even on polished rotors
NOTE: All brake pads and shoes are sold in sets for one disc or drum. Order one set for each disc or drum on your motorcycle.
NOTE: Never use sintered metal brake pads in calipers originally equipped with non-sintered brake pads. Check your owners manual to see if sintered metal brake pads are standard equipment on your motorcycle
i installed these on my 99 katana 750 in the rear. i didnt want anything overly "grippy" as the you really dont want the rear locking up. so i opted for these pads as they are better than OEM but not as good as EBC HH's
they have been working flawlessly now, with FAR better braking feel and a slightly better bike than stock!
i would highly recommend these for use in REAR brake's, but would NOT recommend them for fronts!
I've used these pads for over 1 1/2 years now (2 sets)im on my 2nd set i think they are great they work very well wet or dry hot or cold ( i ride year round) fit perfect great price . cant go wrong with these folks
No issues with the fitment. Just need to remember to take the backing clip off of the old pad and put on the new one. I had a shop install these while they replaced a tire and the mechanic did not do it. Thank goodness he gave me back the old pads and I figured out that the scraping noise was due to this...
I got more than I expected when I fit up the new pads I received from Dennis Kirk for my BMW K1200LT Elite, The run in was immediate within 3-4 applications of the pedal, These are the pads you want to put on your bike . With the weight of my bike at around 1175 lbs ready for an extended one-up ride, these pads performed flawlessly without any noise,slip,shimmy or problems whatsoever. I consider them a great bargin at the price offered considering the quality with all other sets listing higher also the delivery times were as promised and they even thru in a suprise gift, Overall I am very happy and will continue with them in the near future.
these brake pads work as good as they say ,i like the organic because of less noise and less wear on the rotor.and they do grip well.i use them on my honda trike , the price is ok ,considering you pay for shipping ,but overall ,ill buy from DK any time .
they grip just the right amount for ppl who use there front brake alot. brake in time took alittle bit longer than i would have liked. durring brake in time they squeel at slower speeds. also brake dust is at a minimum with these. i went on a 200 mile ride mostly city miles with stop and go traffic so the front brake was used alot and i didnt see any brake dust at all. over all its just a good product.
This was my first time replacing brake pads on a motorcycle, and i would say that they fit very nicely, and work exceptionally well. The front pads grab beautifully, and the rears need some adjustment yet. One issue i ran into while installing was runs in the paint on the sides of the pads. Had to scrape the paint with a razor to remove the paint so the pad will float in the caliper. Otherwise its a great product.
