    Had the brakes installed when I replaced the tires. Braking is not as responsive as HD brakes; however, I understand a break in period is necessary. Hopefully they will improve.

    Brake Pads

    Ordered over the phone and your Customer Service guy recommended this product. They were a few dollars more, but I like them a lot better than the standard brand that I had been using. They stop quietly and quickly!!! What more could you ask for from a set of brakes?!?!?

    I have used these since 50,000 miles and now have 116,000. Only had to change once. Excellent wear. Stop much better than stock when wet. Absolutely no fading. I recommend these over stock any day.

    Does a fine job, dollar for dollar a good deal

    These were some of the cheaper pads that I could find for my bike as I plan on upgrading the front system soon. These work just fine, and I had no issues with installation or use in about 300 miles. Sintered metal is hard on discs, so it's not my first choice.

    I needed rear brakes badly on my ultra classic and bought these to see if they were any good. They were a little spongy at first but after about 100 miles or so I took my girlfriend for a ride and they performed great. I will buy them again if I can get decent life out of them.

    better than orig stock

    Brake pads are excellent for my 06 road king. Quiet low brake dust if any, and stops quicker than the stock pads. Read bad reviews but not by me.

    DP Sintered metal brake pads

    i was hesitant to get these because i had read some mixed reviews about this product, however once i got them on i felt these were much better than the stock rear pads that i had, much better feel and proformance. i read that they felt slightly spongy but i have no feeling of that sort. Overall i would buy these rear pads again.

    Sintered metal brakes

    The brakes fit well, the stamped metal was a pretty good quality they do squeak some though. But I thought the break-in wasn't too bad.

    Great cheap brakes for KLR 650

    I used these on the rear brakes, and they are good (just as good as stock). I replaced them myself in 30 min (and even did a full bleeding of the brakes). It takes little effort for them to engage and they can easily outperform my tire in braking power (60/40 street/dirt tire). There is a little bit of problem with the initial fitting into the socket. This can be fixed by a hammer and screw driver.

    Sintered metal brakes

    I bought these pads because I needed rear pads and these were all I could find at your website, so I bought them. They required a lot of breaking in per instructions, which I followed. The brakes require twice the pedal pressure as my old ones and they squeal, and the rotors are wearing, so I'm removing them as soon as I can get a new set. Bottom line is "I wouldn't recommend them to anyone...

    Steet Triple '09 pad replacement @ 10kmiles

    Pads fit fine. No noticeable difference between stock performance. Odd scraping noise when moving bike backwards. Everything installed ok, so I put on 150 miles on normal commuting riding to bed-in pads. No more noise.

    Perfect fit

    Pads fit as well as OEM and were very easy to install (on a 2005 BMW F650GS). After about a month of riding they seem to function as well, also, but they were much cheaper than manufacturer replacements would have been.

    So this is the poor braking everyone talks about...

    I have a KLR 650 that looks like it still had the stock pads on it. I've put 7000 miles on it, and the whole time wondered what the "crappy braking" was that other KLR riders were talking about. After putting these pads on, I went from a two-finger braker to a full fisted white knuckled braker. I could not get any performance out of these pads. I bled my brakes, thinking maybe I somehow got air in the line... The brake feel was spongy and unresponsive, and I routinely would bring the brake lever back to the grip and still not be locking up the tire or braking with any reasonable force. After my brake bleeding, I still had spongy brakes. At this point, I figured my mechanical skills must just have been lacking. No way can brake pads make brakes feel so bad. On a labor day trip with the pads, after putting 1,000 or so miles on them, I took a break mid-trip at a Kawasaki dealership. With the heavy load and passenger I was carrying, the reduced brake performance was a huge safety issue. They took it for a test ride and agreed... my brakes totally sucked. They bled the front brakes twice... once manually and once, I guess, via vacuum. The mechanic took apart the brakes, cleaned them, etc... In the end, there was little improvement. They said perhaps I had stretched my brake lines, perhaps my rotor needed to be replaced... but definitely to switch back to Kawasaki factory pads. I don't know about Kawasaki pads, but I definitely won't be buying these again. I'll update (hopefully, if I can) this review if I replace the pads and performance still doesn't return, as that would indicate that it's not an issue with the pads. But holy crap, ever since I put these on stopping has been a nightmare.
