Pads for a 929

I was looking for replacement pads for my 929 and was wondering if HRC still produces pads for it.

If not, what recommendations do you guys have for a replacement?

Re: Pads for a 929

Good luck finding HRC. They've been unobtainium for my RC51 for a few years now. The best ones I've found through research and actually owned a set is Carbone Lorraine SBK5.
Unlike Galfer or EBC, they have a thick ceramic coating under the liner and on the backside of the pad too. Helps with heat dissipation. They're about $37-40 per set - of course, two sets for the front.
The EBC hh are crap. I've had them on my VFR and RC51 and wasn't happy at all. The stock pads are better. fwiw, Honda's stock pads are pretty damn good, imo.

Re: Pads for a 929

I've been running these on my 929 for a couple of months now, and they're GREAT pads. I haven't tested them on the track, but for road riding they're superb, even in the wet.

If the bike isn't braking properly, you don't start by rebuilding the engine.

Re: Pads for a 929

That's a damn good price Sky!
Have you really put the heat to 'em? How do they do in a panic stop from high speed?
The reason I hated EBC is that they were very squeeky, and they lost chunks of material off the edges.

I generally run EBC HH's but they are fairly noisy.

They've handled everything I've thrown at em really well to be honest. After the usual break in of pads I like to try a few harder stops (just to make sure they'll be ok), and they brought the bike up great.

I never bother with breaking pads in, just go hard from the pits.

Re: Pads for a 929

My break in is just a few almost stops from "around town" speeds, then a few harder stops from motorway speeds. Done.

For any particular reason?

Re: Pads for a 929

i just put braided lines on an my mate fitted some pads that i got with the bike an felt great , got told i could improve with better quality pads an to try ebc hh, gave them a go an the old ones felt heaps better.
not sure what they are but they look exactly the same but thicker an no line running down the center of the pad like ebc ones had.

Are the discs worn perhaps?
If you prefer them then it might be worth trying to find out what they are so you can get them again next time :-)

Re: Pads for a 929

I'm running a galfer style rotor with, the EBC HH pads and I haven't had any noise out of them yet. I only have about 200 miles on them though so not sure what will happen once they are past their recommended breakin period of 250 miles. They seem to stop well and I've tried braking fast from over 100mph multiple times with absolutely full confidence.
