Brake pads

Another brake pad post for me guys Ive got a question.

So I found these

http://www.d2moto.com/p-22440-2001-2...rake-pads.aspx

I see that these are the sinister HH like the (EBC) but these are (Volar motorsports)

Are they similar.. is it just a brand thing (EBC) / (Volar) what are your thoughts..

Thanks

It wouldn't hurt to try honestly. Have you read any reviews for these online? I'm all for being a guinea pig to try new stuff just so as long that you are fully aware that you get what you pay for. If you do try them and as with any other brakes, that you make sure you scrub the rotors some and make sure you bed the pads in properly. Might as well bleed/flush the brakes at the same time too.

I don't see 120 as that expensive. Im all for saving some money, but look at it this way. How often do you replace brake pads if you mainly ride street conservatively? Not often.

If you have to ask about a brand that no one has heard of, obviously you're not gonna get very many answers favoring the lesser known. I have nothing against being trying new products but I guess I just want the piece of mind from components such as brakes.

I normally go with the EBC Double HH for my front brake pads. For the rear I use an EBC Organic brake pad. The HH pad has a really high friction rating for maximum stopping power, this is what you want up front. The reason I use an organic in the rear is because the stopping power is much less. You put that HH pad in the rear and it will lock up much easier when force is applied to the rear brake. The organics not so much. Great pads but some complain that they are kinda noisy, It doesn't really bother me. They are worth the weight in gold and even better - are readily available at almost all of our local sponsors shops.
