Front brake pads

FF pads are usually the stock ones, if you want more gripping power then go with GG pads... HH are what i have on the front of the busa now, they really stop. I guess it depends on how quick you want to get the back up, I'd suggest HH pads but then again the only stoppies i've done were on the 50

OEM pads are best for endos. Double H pads are not.

I figured OEM was the way to go. The brakes on my f4i have always sucked. I am gonna try new pads first to see if that is the problem.

You need to have enough feel on the front end so you don't loop out. OEM is the best.

Stay away from the HH and just get the OEM brake pads. Call Javi at True Methodz and he will know what to order.

yeap, I would say however, that running OEM is the best to run for stunts, but if all you can get is EBC (non HH) for the back break, it's not terrible (I think I have some EBC's on my handbrake), but for front brakes... OEM 100%!

I run EBC's (non HH) on the back and they work fine. Scott just grabs his front wheel with is barehand and rolls 400+
