I'm trying the DP pads that TPI sells. I haven't used them long enough to give a real review but, so far so good. They don't spit black bust out like the stockers so, I guess they are harder? I have not ridden in the rain yet but, the dry grip has been very good. Not as loud as some EBC HH pads I've tried on other bikes.

Usually the stock oem is best though, I like stock pads on my FJR. So, are the DP pads going to kill my rotor or what?
