Im using EBC HH pads with SS lines, and it makes a of a difference. There is way less brake fade by the end of a race compared to stock lines.

Can't imagine them helping any at anything other than the competition level as far as performance is concerned.
For the guy that quoted the ebay add, if you want good info, ask the people that use the stuff, not the ones selling it.
They look nifty though, soo if money aint an object, knock yourself out.

I've got them on one my current bikes and have had them on past street bikes and racebikes I've owned.
Although they "look nice", I have never able been able to notice a difference in performance.

the bmw induros use the same design; more movement from the rotor(larger diameter spin) allows to cool more.....

Buell has been doing it for a while. Looks like it would heat up the tire on that side quite a bit more to me.

shouldn't be an issue w/ dual rotors

but it also seems like (in theory at least) the larger rotor would be better for braking torque, as well as the larger surface area being able to better dissipate heat
