Recommendations for Dragging Brakes?

Ok... Question for the pros....

Tried to do more engine braking at the drag races Friday night, 1/4 track but I still needed brake assist before met the dirt patch.

I don't like the smell of the brakes burning when slowing down, usually I don't have a need to stop that fast so much. Didn't have any brake fade, but is there any recommendations for brake brands? Probably looking at just a pad replacement and nothing like a corse pad that would wear too inefficiently for regular street use....

stainless steel brake lines and EBC GFA pads. Patrick at Motorcycles Unlimited can hook you up.

and i don't know why you would smell your brakes burning when stopping? i hammer my brakes all the time, and never smell a thing. might wanna get that checked out.

the brakes have way more stopping power than you think. if you gradually squeeze the brakes, it will not lock up on you.

Started smelling it after third or four times... Unless i'm smelling rubber at the end of the track? Sure smelled like brake or clutch material. Pads have plenty and rotors are good...

I did put EBCs on the other bike... Don't know what type...

dang that sucks, i doubt it's the pads you are smelling, might wanna keep an eye out for those kinda things.

yeah EBC has a few different lines....the GFA's will be the one you want.

find out if your rotors are real hot after your run and you will know if it is your brakes or not. btw it isnt normall for them to smell like that after that little bit of use

Yeah, I kinda figured most riding doesn't require more then a half second of braking before an aggressive corner, hadn't had a panic stop since yesterday... didn't see the red light on the feeder(let me explain, accidently got on the toll road just gave ALL my change to my sis so I was out... so I rode the line on the ez tag lane and got off on the next exit; guess my mind was still on the toll road thing...)

But yeah, never any probs with the brakes...
