The original poster asked about his ATE brakes, not Brembos. Any time ATE brakes come up its the same.
Take the H away from ATE.... embrace the dead end design brake for what it is..and how it can be improved upon.

I swapped out an R100 front end from ATE to Brembos 20 years ago....and have run late 70's Ducati for over 25 years..OMG I'm tuning it into a me me me thread....

See the crap you started Wirespokes? Voltaire is thinking I said what you said I said. He is also thinking that I brought up the subject of Brembo's in the context of comparing them to ATE's. That was you too. Of course, you were putting words in my mouth as you did but . . . . Reading me wrong isn't the half of it.

Lets stop all this. The question was are the pads the same and the answer is yes.

Now its time for drinks and singing loud enough to annoy the bartender.

If you got some SS lines for that it will make them work better.

On the subject of ATE brakes, I had somewhat seriously considered pitching it and replacing it with a Grimeca four leading shoe unit. Looks way cool, unlike the ATE.

I've got the single disk with undertank m/c. With the assistance of an adrenaline infusion from a potential crash, both rear drum and front disk can be locked up securely in a braking action. DAMHIKT. If you're driving the equivalent of a John Deere, you don't need power-assisted ABS brakes. Look well ahead.

And, to sprinkle some holy-water onto the fire, these work well and are generally trouble-free...

I am in the process of making my Ate system a dual set up. I have mounted the required fork leg, rebuilt front end this past winter. So I have the fork leg and have the eccentric pin in place to protect the bushing. I will probably try some calipers, I have a couple, various sizes. Won't worry about it till I get some kind of a line splitter or rebuild the dual system MC. I might have that fork leg in place for a couple of years till I get all this stuff together.

I also have a set of the purple calipers for this but they aren't my best set. But I think I'll use them anyway.

Who says the Ate system doesn't look cool? I think the fat Ate calipers hanging down behind the fork leg are the sexiest looking brakes around. Who cares if they actually work?

But I do think they work. They work well enough.

When I rode /5s. I didn't know my front brakes sucked.
Until I bought my R1100R with 4 puck brembo calipers.
Damn, simpler times.
I still think the drum brakes worked fine,but then of course I learned to ride on a 65 Norton.
