Brakes Info new brake pads

Post  Skippy on Sun 03 Aug 2008, 1:32 am

I have found out that the original brake pads are of a performance grade and not general road use. I will be trying 2 new sets of standard pads over the next few weeks and see if this improves its braking. They are two grades harder then standard according to my local auto shop. So hopefully this will make the braking a bit better with a softer grade of shoe. Itís a cheep mode as they only cost around £14.00 a set.

The brake pads you mention do require slotting out the pin holes so they will fit.
I think there is slightly more stopping power, but they are probably not bedded in yet.
