Which brake pads work well?

I am going to out a 320mm ebc rotor on my Husqvarna 610 and was looking g for a little insight on brake pads. This bike will see some track as well as street and the stock TE set up fades fast at the track. Any help is appreciated. Thanks .

Carbon Lorraine (CL) XBK5 are the best double duty pads I've used to date. Not a brutal initial bite like the HH's, but so smooth with stout (but not disturbingly abrupt) stopping power.

Thanks guys. I use the Veserah srjl xx on my big bike. What I need here is a brake pad that i can get for my Supermoto bike. I just don't know if there is a better brand out there or model specific brakes for the motards.

I think some EBC HH will work perfect for double duty....Im not sure they sell anything any higher for your small brake caliper.....too grabby and they are just gonna unsettle your suspension or throw you over the bars....

Sounds good. I know that hh pads don't do well for track duty on the R6. The husky is lighter and will be going slower. It would make sense that they would fade less with the tard. Thanks for the info. I will try a set out.

I'm curious about this. Please describe the fade you are experiencing. Do you still have full pressure at the lever?

On the r6 after a number of hot laps during an endurance race the lever would go almost to the bar as the brakes got hotter it was almost impossible to stop at the end of the straights. This could have been a combination of the pads and fluid. Both were switched after that day and the fade never returned. On the tard the brakes got bad after a few laps. The brake lever would also go all the way to the bar and I had to use the rear brake and brake sooner to get it stopped. It is not an all or nothing feeling. They just stop working as well and get worse the longer you go. I will be upgrading not just the pads. I am getting a new larger full floating rotor and will also flush the fluid in the line.

Probably dumb questions... Are you already running stainless lines and DOT 5 fluid?

On my gixxer I run Castrol SRF. It's a silicon based, highly non-hygroscopic so it doesn't absorb water at all, like traditional brake fluids. However, it's quite expensive and is not compatible with standard glycol based brake fluid. You have to completely flush the system when going to SRF or switching back to non-silicon (glycol) based fluid.

On the glycol side motul 660 gets a lot of good reports.

Yes. Hard lines and I use the Mogul 660. Good into on the silicone though. Thanks.

Floating rotors will definitely dissipate the heat faster. Only other option would be bigger and better calipers.

It has the brembo 2 piston set up now. I am going to find out If I can get a four piston to work that's not too expensive.
Motorcycles Unlimited is getting me new pads. The EBC for my bike are the mx-s race pads. They should be the same compound as the HH. They are also trying to find the larger disc and bracket for my bike. Good folks over there.

The 510SmR comes with the 2 piece 4 piston radial brembos, not sure if your fork leg is the same but the spacing btwn mount holes are 100mm.

They should fit. I believe that the legs are the same. It's the triples and the length of the legs that is different. I will have to look for a set.

Awesome. I would like to get this thing sorted. I have a slip on and tuner ordered for it as well as the power up plug to delete the O2 sensor. It should yank the front in a few more gears when I'm done with it.

If the lever is going to the bar, that's not pad fade. You are boiling the brake fluid.

How old is the fluid in the bike? Since you are running the Motul (glycol based) you'd want to keep it fresh. Renew at least every year. More if you've been working on the brakes with the bleeders and reservoir open. In this humid environment the moisture gets in so quick. When the happens the boiling point of the fluid drops like a rock.

I prefer Vesrah's over EBC's. Better initial bite and way better feel. When Vesrah's aren't an option, i'll go with EBC extreme pros.

I can get you either brake pads at unbeatable prices.
