    I am having problems finding out if brake pads for a 2009 model are the same for a 2018 model. I ordered EBC HH pads for my 2018 and am not sure now if they will fit. Very little info if you Google this.

    If you use the fische on ronayers, you can search for a part number & it will show anywhere else they are used.

    What exact pads are you guys recommending? I'm looking to put new fronts on even though I'm only at about 1400 miles, I'm just not feeling a ton of bite with the stock pads. I'm looking on Motosport.com and there are a bunch of brands and types, some are really expensive. Any suggestions?

    Thanks
    John

    I put sintered HH on my gen 1, greatly improved the breaking ability. They really bite, and will lock up very easily. But I heard they will wear rotors out because of the hardness.

    I have EBC and Galfers available. Usually a sintered or HH compound will have more bite once warmed up.
