EBC Brake Pads - FA231
  • The worlds #1 selling organic disc brake pads
  • 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.
  • 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

EBC Kevlar Brake Pads FA400
I have a 04 VRSCB with noisy brakes.
Original pads displayed no wear. The rotor was perfect. But still had a very annoying rubbing noise.

Tried the FA400s and what a difference in performance and noise.
Great stopping performance and quiet!

EBC kevlar pads
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!

So Far So Good
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...

Good buy!
I looked over various pads for my 06 GSXR 1k. But I went with these for both the front and rear. The brakes after 1 year of riding still have plenty of meat. Good feel and feedback through the lever.

Those who know BMW's
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.
