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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

These are great quality brakes at a fraction of the cost. I highly recommend them for your sport bike.
