Just curious to see what people are using, i just brought my bike in for the recall part and they said i needed new brake pads, so i wanted to see what was recommended.
I'm just over 4,500... the mechanic said they are almost gonehow many miles did you get outta the stockers
on sale? sounds good, i'll be hitting you up for a pairYup, and if you really want some bite
try the EXP's.
I have all EBC's on sale.
that seems pretty low... could you snap a pic of what's left in the calipers...I'm just over 4,500... the mechanic said they are almost gone

just curious, which pads are meant for the 09? on your site, every time i click the 09/10 parts, it says coming soon. also what are my options?
i did take a quick look at them, compared to the front ones and they are running pretty low. after riding today, i did figure i use the back brake almost all of the time as oppose to the front. i'm placing an order tonight, once i change them out, i'll get a pic up.. i'm assuming most people use the front brake?You might want to check those yourself, its hard to believe that you need new pads after that few miles.
i did learn at msf that front does provide the greatest braking, but i guess i just brake early enough that i usually use the rear brake. .wait this is the rear brake??? are you dragging the brake... On all the bikes i've owned the fronts are usually trashed LONG before the rears, and almost always use both brakes.
and Ziggy is right most braking is done by the front brakes, something more like 80% front 20% rear... always braking on the rear is not the safest technique to learn.
