Hey everyone! Im new to this site and want to know which brake pads are excellent for a 00'zx-6r. Also, want to know which brake pads do the 00' currently carry. I heard of EBC, FERODO, SPIEGLER, ETC..but there is too much to list, so want to know from a few which is highly recommended. Keep in mind it's for a street bike not track bike. Thanks and Cool Website. [8]

I run EBC brakes on my bike along with most of the people I ride with. I don't remember which version I have, I knmow its one under the full race brake. Im getting ready to put my 3rd set of brakes on and will use EBC again.

EBC HH pads are decent pads at a reasonable price. They are also widely available. Pads are one of those personal preference things like oil. Everyone has a favorite brand.
The only thing I would look into is that some give off more brake dust than others.

The EBC HH sintered pad is a popular choice. Because of its hard initial bite, many riders do not also try other, better pads.

I prefer the Performance Friction 95 compound pad. It has a softer initial bite, but much more feel and less drag. Other PFC compounds have a harder initial bite.

According to Chuck Graves of Graves Motorsports fame, the PFC pads are the best they have tested. Check out his take on r1-forum.com.

You can get inexpensive PFC pads at nationalfleetparts.com.
Interesting, I will look into those pads when it is time for new pads. How long do the factory pads usually last?

Pad life varies with riding style. Both pads in a caliper should be replaced as a set when the lining thickness of either pad is less than the 1-mm service limit.
