Re: SBS pads any good?

I just dropped my 954 off at the dealer for a new front tire and some new front pads. I had asked for OEM Honda pads but after I got there I realized he wanted to substitute SBS sintered pads instead.

Are these any good? As good as OEM? Am I going to notice a difference anyway?

I am no track guy - just a weekend casual street rider.

SBS pads are most excellent. I wish I had a good source for them locally . . .

Re: SBS pads any good?

I can't say enough about SBS I've used the stock honda/ducati/suzuki pads, ferrodo, ebc and none of them are even comparable to sbs IMHO but I only use the dual carbon, not the sintered

Re: SBS pads any good?

I'm onto my second set of SBS pads in the front - super powerful, I just wish they had a bit more meat on them when you first buy/install them. The pad material is only 4mm thick, and they are pretty soft (hence the great stopping power)...but they're worth it. You wont be sorry.

Cheers, Spanky.

Maybe I'm just lazy, but I consider that a bonus. I had to lap down the couple sets of Ferodos I used as they were too thick, total PITA.

Re: SBS pads any good?

might have to give them a try this summer as a local dealer here carries them.

if you can't convince them, confuse them.
