Brake pad recommendation?
 
I'm sure this straightforward question is going to spawn a ton of different responses (which I welcome!): what does everyone recommend for brake pads on the 990 *with* ABS. I do highway commuting on the weekdays (ABS enabled), and logging roads on the weekends (ABS disabled). I'm fairly happy with the OEM pads to be quite honest, but am always on the lookout for something "better" (however that be defined).

I've got a 950 adv. I didn't have any luck with any brake pads exept for the stock oem ones. Yes more money, but they last alot longer and have better feel.

EBC EPFA series are awesome - expensive, but awesome.

^^ Thats certainly the case with my EXC, OEM Brembo every time. On my Adventure which never sees wet dirt, but does see fast road use on mountain roads, Ferodo HH works well.

Yep. Agreed...........I do use EBC graphites on the rear. Not as good as stock.

Brembo brake pads. Cheaper, last almost as much as stock. Won't eat the rotors

i like those most, organic i think with softer compound they dont last quite as long but have a nice feel a dont eat the rotor so bad

OEM pads are Brembo,,,,, they even come in a Brembo package with a KTM sticker on them.

I get Toshiba brake pads when buying OEM for my SE. Excellent stuff! Is perhaps Toshiba subsupplier for Brembo?

Didn't knew that, but i'm currently buying them at 30 euros/pair, when the stock KTM branded ones are at +50 euro/pair

Meh. No real difference over the Galfer's I had before.

Head2Wind 12-28-2012 10:35 AM

I like the Galfer Green front and back, good initial bite, don't fade, deal with wet well, don't squeal and don't appear to wear rotor too bad, but they do go away quicker than the OEM units for sure. I have not tried the Ceramic Galfers yet, mostly because the Greens seem to work for my needs...
