Ive worked on my own bikes for a long time and Ive never heard of Volar Motorsports. I wouldnt buy either. Do urself a huge favor and go talk to a local sponser that will steer u in the right direction. If it were me I would go with EBC HH pads...

EBC HH for sure. Volar is just a chinese mass manufacturer me thinks. Vesrah's are nice too but too much for what you need on a street bike.

All depends on intended use. For the street, OEM for sure. If you need a deal on Honda pads let me know.

If they're good enough for your TMAX, then they're good enough for the president of our United States.




Sorry, had to go there. He left me no choice. Ride on TMAX
