The best are usually the factory ones...cause they are spec'd to your bike... as long as the friction rating is HH you'll be fine... Either buy factory or EBC HH that's what I use.

I was going to describe but this seems to be good enough.

Quote:
OEM/Replacement Pad
Black 1052: GG-rated compound

The 1052 is a semi-metallic compound that works in any terrain condition. It is composed of carbon and basalt fibers. This makes the 1052 a fade-free material. It is a long-lasting brake pad. The 1052 does not damage rotors, as opposed to some of the OEM full metallic pads. This is an organic based compound.
Applications: Touring, Off-road & Sport.
Composition: Semi-metallic compound with carbon and basalt fibers.
Feel: This compound feels as good as a stock pad but it outperforms the feel of a stock pad when they are hot.


HH Performance Race Pad
Sintered 1396/HH-rated compound

The 1396 compound is a new sintered bronzed-based material that includes graphite and other advanced ceramics. It will provide instant powerful controlled braking force at any speed or temperature, rainy or dry weather. Great lasting power. These compound can be used on Sport Bikes as well as MX Off Road use.


VERY IMPORTANT:

All Galfer compounds are to be "broken-in" lightly for the first 2 or 3 laps, or 40 miles of street riding. All rotors must be cleaned before new pads are to be install, especially those rotors that were using HH metallic pads prior to installing new Galfer organic pads.
I have rode all three, including the greens, and prefer the HH.

Can't go wrong with that.


I've heard good things about Vesrah pads. I think I have EBC on my rig now.

EBC Double-H (HH) pads. Get some SS Lines too, Galfer or Goodridge, thats what I have on both my bikes. Those daddies were hauling the cbr from 140 to about 40-50 very nicely for turn 1 at VIR this weekend

Also look at DP (Dunlopad) pads. I use their HH pads on my CBR and like them.

i prefer the stock pads, you can get em pretty cheap, good life, and honestly they have the best feel for me for endos and using rear brake in wheelies. Racers etc may have a different input, ive tried a few and jsut like the feel of stock for my type of riding.

for Vesrah and EBC. Oh and the other guys are right HH is the way to go as far as compounds are concerned.

I prefer Galfer, but that's just personal preference. Just don't get too crazy and get the super dooper race pads. Remember that unless you're racing, you're not going to get those pads heated up to their operating temperatures. The same goes for racing tires.

Have you ran a better quality HH sintered brake pad before? If not you have no idea what you're missing!

Excellent point. Some people will never accept that fact, however.

Galfer or EBC HH pads. Remarkable difference. Might as well change the lines while you're at it.
