Brake pads

Discussion in 'Bling and Appearance' at netrider.net.au started by deafwish, Jul 24, 2005.

  1. I've got a 98 model Hornet and i need new front brake pads in about 3000km time (pretty soon).
    Should i go with the genuine Honda items, or go something different?
    I won't be using it for track days, just spirited riding. :wink:
    What would they cost for pads alone?
    Might have to swing someone a six pack when it's time to fit them.....please... :oops:

  2. EBC have a very good reputation, imported by Wayne Gardner so should be good. There are grades of pads depending on the type of riding that you do. It's easy to replace them yourself, and you should do a flush and replenish of brake fluid at the same time to keep your system tip top.
    This is a job you can do yourself (with a friend's help)
    Ring around some shops for prices.

  3. Aftermarket pads, like SBS, EBC or Carbonne Lorraine, should be a fair bit cheaper than the OE stuff, whic, in turn, might have a bit of a longevity advantage.
