Re: EBC HH pads on a 929, more noise than OE Honda?
I just put some HH pads on the 954. Did about 100Kms until the buzzing was too annoying. Did some surfing and came across the same symptoms with a guy's intruder. The theory was air in the cross drilled holes in the rotor heats up when it passes between the pads, creating the buzzing sound. The solution was to cut slots across the pad to make them look like the stock pads, and give the air somewhere to vent.
Not one to dismiss a crazy theory I gave it a try. I cut three slots across the face of the pad, with a hacksaw, to match the wear indicators of the stock pads. To my surprise, no more buzzing sound. I'm guessing the warranty is voided, but I can live with that.
