Best brake pads???

Looking to change my pads. I'm looking for input as to what pad might be the best for street and occassional track days.

I have a set of HRC pads that I have yet to try out, I crashed my other 954 before I could change out the pads. I have heard nothing but good things about HRC pads and EBC HH pads.

Good luck,

Rick

The SBS are very good as well . . .

They don't last very long, but have incredible power and most excellent feel.

Which compound do you use, Abtech? I"m running the HRC pads now, but wouldn't mind trying something else. If you've run the HRC pads yourself, how do the SBS compare?

Thanks.

A british bike mag tested more than a dozen pads on a 929 1 or 2 yrs ago. Result was std Honda pads were judged overall best. They scored near the top in each catagory (outright pwr, feel, fade, ...).

I would have to look it up, as my RC came with EBC kit pads and I haven't checked anything else yet. The HRC's last a lot longer than the SBS (just about anything does).

Re the OEM pads, I found they glazed pretty quickly under racing conditions and I had to bead blast the rotors as a regular event to keep them fresh. When they weren't glazed, they were OK, but not nearly as good as the Ferodo/SBS/HRC/EBC units.

I used the OEM pads on the track for a couple of years---they are fine, now I use the HRC pads----mo better stopping power

The stock pads rock, but I love the Galfer Black pads. Only down side is (as funny as it sounds) is that they do make a "different" sound and they seem to take a few pulls to warm up for proper stopping power.
