The problem with the EBC HH pads is that they have a predilection for warpage of their backing plates if you brake very hard often enough.

Hmmmm....... I never noticed that. I'll have to look on the package next time.

i actaully use the stock pads over the EBC HH. Once the stocker bedded in w/stainless lines and silkolene fluid, i was able to use 1-2 fingers to pull the brake lever. I personally dont' like the EBC's b/c of the way to hard inital bite then brake fade.

I would like the try the Vesrah's though, eyespy, how are they?

The Vesrahs are excellent. initial bite is not overly aggressive, the braking forces generated are very linear, making it easy to modulate braking, one finger stops are no problem, no problem with fade, they last a good long time, and I find they are very easy on the rotors. No warping, either.

Thanks for the replies. I bought some EBC pads for my car and those things squealed like crazy for the first 5000 miles even with goop on the back. I don't really think they stop any better than the factory pads either.

Yep I had some fade with my EBC HH pads, still light years ahead from my stock pads though. Also didn any of you guys notice that they hiss pretty loud?

well, the hissing didn't really bother me nearly as much as flying off a straight at 120+ mph on an R1 pulling in the brake lever and not getting much brake. So, I used ALOT of engine braking and in this case, trail braking. I made the corner, but it had a pucker factor of 10.
I don't know, about them being light years ahead of stock. I guess it would depend on the bike makes. The yamaha pads are pretty good. like I said, damn near flipped me before I got used to them.

does vesrah put out an organic pad...if so, where would you suggest to purchase them online?
Why organic? I bet the stockers are sintered metal. Most sportbikes come with really good brakes.
