Which pads to upgrade to?

09' Zx6r
Been browsing all the forums with little help.. Looking for a good brake pad i can use on track and the street. So far what i've come up with is EBC HH's.

Would like some other input from all the track and street riders. And also if anyone knows a site that has good deals on them or a sale going on would help as well.

Thanks in advance

I wouldn't run any race compound on the street.

Do you have stainless lines up front yet? If not, it is THE best bang for your buck when it comes to braking.
Yes i do, just looking to swap out my pads to ones more versatile to track and street use since i commute on it and track it when possible.

If it was up to me,

I'd run Vesrah pads - RJL will be good, SRJL are made purely for track... I personally can't stand ebc pads. I have too many problems with them...

As far as brake lines go, I'd try to find Fren Tubo lines. They are fantastic. I've been using them on my bikes since I started racing. I'm not a fan of Galfer personally, unless you have the wherewithall to put together superbike lines...

Good Luck...

For the guys who are knocking a certain pad please elaborate more because its really not helping the situation or giving the OP an understanding on why you "hate" them

Ive ran EBC HH on my 07 ZX6R while in street duty and track duty at a moderate level II pace with out any issues as far as braking power or fading. I hear good things about the Vesrahs as stated above but my only experience is with the EBC HH so i have nothing to compare them too. I also have the EBC HH on my Motard and run track days on that bike too with no issues....Just dont go with a track only pad because they wear out fast and require heat to actually grip well.

Call up Allan at Whoopies or Patrick at Motorcycles Unlimited and they will take care of you...

No I havent taken the bike to the track with these pads. Once I broke them in they seem to do the job well on hard breaking.

Exactly what I think the OP needs to know...Im not sure on his pace but going off his info he probably not at your Level speed at the track so the EBC HH pads would probably work for him...

OP how many track days have you attended? or whats your pace/level?

I changed out my stock pads with EBC HH pads and love the stopping power. The front tire had a little dragging going on untill they broke in. Be sure to clean off the plungers before you install the new pads. Dirty plungers will also creat break drag.
