Both EBCs or Vesrah's will do the job fine...

In my opinion you'll never even reach 80-90% of their capabilities on track.. and half of that on street...

FYI, The 675 uses the same pad as a 06-09 R6. They are the same calipers.

Vesrah does not carry a part number for a 07-08 Daytona 675, but there are plenty of guys running the R6 pads in their 675's.

Patrick has been getting us EBCs for the LSTD bike for a few seasons now. They have always worked very well but the new pads, Extreme Pros...I think, are very impressive.

vesrah RJL ftw. I've never ridden the bike I have now w/stock pads (it was already track'd out when we got it), but the brakes on it now (stainless lines and RJL pads, stock everything else) are scary strong.

Burnboy, upgraded pads are the schnitz. You gotta give them a shot. The RJLs are astounding when moving from the stock pads. Given the demands from the public, I can't imagine that they'd have a race pad delivered on a stock bike.

the Trump 675's are raced in the UK in a one make series,
the dominant brake pad is the Performance Friction Compound 96,
I'm assuming you want a track/race pad because you've posted in Racers Lounge.

i was told to use the rjl's as well by my racer neighbor. that day i went to patrick. he looked them up and said not available. he said my only options were ebc and dp. i would like to upgrade as well. now i will investigate again as per john^^^^. and i was'nt saying the 675 has a race pad stock just that both being british maybe ebc supplied the pads for the 675 not that they are race pads but maybe a mass produced pad for a brand. like the super dragon pro tires that come on it. if you go to the dealer or anywhere else and ask for that tire for replacement you will more than likely recieve a different compound tire than stock. you have to be specific if you want exactly what the bike came with. the 675 brakes are good stock. ive heard the ebc's arent much of an upgrade for the 675. makes me wonder.
