Disc Pads Etc .. Best Price And Best Quality????

Heya fellas getting an order together for sending down to Peru for Maya.

Gonna get front and rear disc pads, new spark plugs, front sprocket (supersprox) and DID ZVMX 525 ..... the stuff you can't get down here.

So our rear disc pads have had a hammering in the grinding paste here in the back blocks of Peru, has anyone found a particular brand that can stand this stuff better than others?

Please let me know.

Many thanks Andi

I would like to hear about some that don't squeak like crazy when they get hot.
Ive had good wear luck with EBC Red in mud etc, but they and most others drive me nuts on the squeaking.

Rear pads

Of all the rear pads I've used, DP have squealed the least. Got them from parts unlimited.

Looked on their site, is DP the brand name?

Couldn't find them so I think I am doing something wrong.

Link, or pointer?

Cheers Andi

Rear pads I've tried Galfer Black, Braking and EBC red (and oem Brembo, of course)

Galfer blacks ate my disc in a few months, I removed them as soon as I realized that, it was too late and I've been riding with my rear disc under minimum thickness for a while...
EBC reds suck. Absolutely no braking power. Shitty pad.
Braking (Italian made?) work great, no better than OEM but no worse either, I can recommend them.
Brembo oem. I have no complains, after trying several pads to get more stopping power I think this is the best pad. Easy on disc, good life and reasonable stopping power.


At the front I also tried Galfer green and while I had an issue while beading them, a friend is using them and after testing his bike I can recommend them.

YMMV...

Galfer green are awesome in terms of feel and stopping power but wear out very quickly.

EBC HH sintered are what I've been using as a replacement from oem and I'm happy with them. Just like the oem ones.

EBC Brakes FA181HH = Rear

EBC Brakes FA209/2HH = Front

The pictures are not the same???, Amazon says FA181HH won't fit Super Enduro R


Anyone confirm these numbers are correct please (just as a double check)?

DP is Dunlop. They make good quality pads.
What type of pad you like is more of a personal preference. Every manufacture makes a range with different compounds, so pick the compound based on your need.
