Big mistake to try these pads on my bike. They do not stop as well as stock pads. I am glad i only changed the rear. I did hear of others that have the same issue using these pads with Brembo. I will use them until they need to be changed but will go back to stock when i do. I was looking for less dust and got that but not impressed with them.
Reviews being highly favorable, I decided to give it a try. Been a lot of years since I did a brake job myself and never on a cycle (2012 Heritage Softail). But I hate the prices they charge (and wait times) at the dealer – even though I think I have a pretty good one nearby. I just moved here and haven’t found a good Indy yet so I’m doing a lot of wrenching myself this year. Brings back memories even though I don’t bend the way I used to or see as well these days. I carefully wrapped a towel around the master cylinder and covered the paint so I didn’t have to worry about brake fluid overflowing when compressing the caliper pistons. Did it slowly enough that no brake fluid spilled anyway. Had a little challenge disengaging the clips from the old pads because I wasn’t sure how they were designed but out they came. One came with the clip so I had to reinstall that. New pads went in like a piece of cake and reassembly was a snap. I’ve got about 50 miles on them so far – no noise and they stop well although I haven’t challenged them yet to give them time to wear in. All in all I’m very satisfied. I wonder how well they will wear? My stock pads lasted 21000 miles and could have gone a bit more.
It fits my 2011 harley fatboy lo but clearly doesn't belong on it....It began with a hard grind on the bike feeling as if the brakes were on the whole time for a couple of days of regular riding leaving behind a ridiculous amount of dust and clumps of debris all over my bike. Forget putting saddle bags on your bike with these its a haven for all the dust. I would have to clean the wheels and brake disc every time i left the house in order not to feel stupid riding my brand new bike with damning screeching noise while i push it out or walk it to a stop or pull into a parking spot. I have a brand new bike i shouldn't have to worry about this freaking problem the worse part is the harley recommended part is the same price but dennis kirk description of this part is that its softer and easier on your brakes and that it will last longer so I ordered these instead stupid choice. I had to reorder the recommended part and pay another grip to have them installed couldn't return these stupid parts so just went to the firing range where I destroyed them.....DO NOT ORDER THESE FOR YOUR HARLEY!!!!
These were what I was looking for. Exactly as described. When I installed the Z+ with the Shim Kit PN # 19-1268 it ended the squealing and excess break dust. Great Product I am not going back to OEM HD pads again.
