I tried to read the old threads and there was no consensus.

100% dry street, otherwise will be rare. I will also be riding in the cold, some thought that a full race pads had to stay hot to perform.

Thanks.

Any HH sintered pads from the major sources; EBC, Galfer, SBS, Ferodo, Goldfren for very hard riding or GG pads for less aggressive riding. The OEM DR pads are a good choice too for general use. I used to race expert class road racing on my SV650 and HH pads offered all the power I needed. They don't need to be hot to work. I prefer them on the street too since they supply a bit more stopping power per the same lever pressure than lesser grade pads. Never had to replace SS rotors because of them but my $900/pr. Brembo Superbike ductile iron rotors did wear out (Yikes!).

HH pads eat cast iron rotors in short order.

I found a great alternative to the OEM pads. The pads are HH sintered last me as long as OEM, work as good as OEM and are less than $24.00 shipping included for a complete set front and rear.

Tell me about it! My Galfer SS Wave rotors show almost no wear in the same amount of track time that ate my $$$$ :OMG: Brembos! I have to say though, those Brembos were sweet while they lasted! :2_thumbsup:
