ebc SV series...they're the bomb diggity supposedly
i run ebc sintered copper racing pads, i beat the hell out of them and they work well and last long, look up ebc brakes and check out the product details and get pads that suit your person riding condtions and riding style
i have the original brake pads on my '04 trx450r, they have been glamis dunin, wisconsin play riding, all over the east for two seasons of EDT/national TT'ing (prolly about as hard as you can be on brakes, its the original clutch too!) and they still have over half the pad left.
what i dont do is mudding and i keep my bikes CLEAN. so maybe there are other options for those types of riders but i have had nothing but good luck with OEM.
you guys ever buy the better ebc's? supposedly the sintered ones i run wear your rotor less than stockers as well as grab better and stay cooler and transfer less heat resulting in less fade...however this is possible i dunno...but i'm pretty sure they do what they say
yeah, prices are better because they sell way more, racers burn pads up constantly. The best part about ebc's is most shops stock which is cool, if you mess one up or find a compound you like you can pretty much get them anywhere instead of waiting for OEM to come in...also you can switch compunds for different trips, the stock is a decent, but limited all-around pad, with aftermarket pads you have more options...
