Judge for yourself

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

Not too bad for OEM, maybe could have done a little better online.

Every part on a Honda is made of sunshine and rainbows. Anything else wouldn't be good for the environment.

Re: 94 dollars for brake pads?!

Could've gone EBC and spent about the same, but they'd be about equal to OEM most of the time anyway. Only more if you want race pads which tend to be very grippy and wear fast... Not a horrible deal, like everyone else said, maybe a bit cheaper online. Check out motosport.com as they have a good selection of OEM and give 20% off on all OEM parts!
