They should be the same, most likely haven't updated the chart.

Thanks guys. I found some but seem to be close to what I found them for but if they last longer then stock then that will be cool I have almost 9000 on the stock ones they seem to be more worn on the one side. The other side is fine.

Time to grease the guide pins.
Wear on one side if from the caliper not sliding on its guide pins.

I have 9000 miles on my ebc pads and they look unworn.

Are you using EBC's sintered, semi-sintered, or organic pads on your TU?

Thanks, Brett! Those are the sintered pads. I am considering the semi-sintered pads. Do you find the pads harsh or hard wearing on your rotor?

No, everything seems fine with those pads, good stopping, low dust, long life, low price, no noise, and my rotor seems fine.
I do use the brakes hard...

It really helps shifting to get the initial oil out.
And the transmission needs to break in, it gets better till about 6000 miles.
Clutch adjustment is also important for shift quality.
I have owned quite a few Suzukis over the years. I started using Lucas Semi-synthetic Racing oil in them and it transformed the shifting. Buttery smooth!

Heck yeah! Enjoy. I highly recommend buying a book called "Proficient Motorcycling." It takes motorcycle safety to a level beyond what you learn in your MSF course. It teaches you how to avoid having to use the skills you learn in MSF.

I was past due for valve adj it didn't seem to hard at first but with out the stubby 10 mm for valve it's pretty much Impossable without removing throdle body so I decided to get some stubby wrenches seemed easier in the long run. Easiest bike to put in tdc that's for sure well in my very limited experience at least.

Thanks! A lot of folks have mentioned that book. I suppose it's time to buy (and read) it.

Been there, done that. I had to sell my pride and joy 15 years ago when I went through a divorce. It was a 1952 military Jeep from the Korean War. I'll never forget the day I sold it and handed the cash over to my lawyer to pay legal bills And though I never had to live in a tent, I was forced to live in an apartment that should have been condemned. A tent would have been a step up That post touched touched a raw nerve, 15 years later. Rant over...
