I finished sorting out the S2T I bought last year (8,100 miles) and started riding it...everything feels great EXCEPT the pulsing front brake. This bike is 100% original so I want to keep the iron rotor.
The OEM pads still looked OK, but that's a cheap place to start along with a brake flush. Looking for advice on what replacement pads I should get. A quick check on eBay comes up with the following:
o EBC FA210 – Organic
o EBC FA210 – Kevlar
o EBC FA210V – Semi-Sintered V
o SBS 658HF – Ceramic
o SBS 658H.CT – Carbon Tech
o Buell OEM 42386-94Y (H0300.8A) – (Ferodo?)
o Performance Machine 0053-1604SA
o Volar Motorsport VBP185-f-2 – Kevlar Carbon
What do you think?

By re-mounting rotor 120 degrees rotated and shimming it with washers, vibration will go away gradually and it should be absolutely vib-free after 1000 ~ 2000 miles.
