I've been a big fan of the SDP993 Dunlopad brake pads, but I've had an issue where the pad has come apart and embedded itself in the rotor at least once, and possibly twice (I have a severe judder after running Deals Gap on Friday). I am loathe to use EBC as thy have been mediocre in the past. I came across Goldfren pads on Ebay. Has anyone used them? https://www.ebay.com/itm/GOLDfren-Brake-Pads-S33-2 69-FA454-4-S33-269/164308769619?hash=item264190db5 3:g:uigAAOSwx1lfIE~V

Brake pads that separate from their backing!?! "Possibly twice"?!? I believe thats all the warning you'll get to stay away from E-bay cheapies from now on.

Surprisingly there is not much regulation in brake pads manufacture.

Both Brembo and SBS make excellent Buell brake pads and have several compounds to choose from with DRAMATICALLY different friction profiles.

So does the popular EBC. I didn't like the regular "HH" pads on the street but they have an "EPFA" option that I do like. Try their track day compound and see if you like them. At least they don't fall apart.
