What Disc Pad Combo


Recommended Posts

Anyone out there had good results yet when changing their discs and pads?

I have run Yamaha std pads and discs and EBC sintered pads on standard discs. (Std discs are in fact Galfer). 

Im thinking of going EBC discs and pads or Brembo discs and pads. 

anyone had any joy with either of these combos yet? 

For info the  Discs have lasted 23,000 miles / 37,000km. For anyone curious.

Do you do a lot of off road riding? 

Surprised discs are shot so soon.  I've never been a fan of ebc red pads. 

On a side note the front pads are same as ktm exc.  For extreme use (racing) I always found dunlopad the best in performance and life in sand/mud.

@Dibles I agree with Chris's point 😉 about going with Galfers. Made a immediate and noticeable improvement in the feel and function of my rear.

I only got around to fitting the Galfers to the rear (from Camel ADV) 3,000 miles ago, and a great improvement.  Have a set for the front that are going in this week. 

The OEMs have 9,000 miles on them and are about 50-60% worn.

Just to update and conclude… I fitted Brembo pads and brembo Oreo discs… all I can say is that they haven’t disappointed. The pads are sintered and matched to the discs. The discs while not wavey are a standard round design but have 10 points of contact rather than the stock which have 5. 

All feels sharper and fresh so that’s all that matters… braking is better but probably down to riding with old discs and pads and changing out the old with the new.
