Re: best brake pads for a 929?

Ok, I ride my 929 mostly on the street, a good bit of hard riding in the mtns, and quite a few trackdays.

What's the best brake pad (for a reasonable price) using stock rotors, for my type of riding?

OEM, EBC HH, HRC, etc? Does DP offer anything for them?

Also, where is the best place to get them?

Re: best brake pads for a 929?

Most folks here I believe have said the OEMs are actually the best. I have Galfer's on now because they came free with my lines, but I'm switching back to OEM. I'd like to try the HRC pads, but they're expensive. Maybe Santa will bring me some!

Re: best brake pads for a 929?

I love the Carbone Lorraine race pads(c43)...they are awesome!

They have a street pad....I haven't try them but if they are anything like the race pads the street pads should be good. I believe the street pads are called SBK-2 or maybe SBK-3. The race pads weren't cheap but cheaper than the new galfer race pads.

I don't recommend EBC HH pads. Hate'em.

I absoloutely recommend EBC HH pads. They work awesome, have great life, almost zero warmup, easy on the rotors...whats not to like?

Re: best brake pads for a 929?

Is the EBC HH a 'dual purpose' pad?

Yes, DP makes pads for the 929. I use the DP HH+ and love them. They are around $30 a pair and seem to last well. Any shop should be able to order them.
