didn't take long...

to fit the anti chatter shims and put a bit of coppaslip grease on and fit them....First impressions after a brisk 20 mile run around are Good.....so unless they wear really quick,or the pads pull away from the backing plates,I'll be happy enough with the savings.:smile

Is this a joke thread oldish?

Seriously fella, ur not gonna run ur GSXR1000 round on that shite are ya?.... :shock::shock::shock::shock:



Best of luck if you are!! I'd take a couple of spark plugs out to keep ur speed down and make sure ur life insurance is up to date if you are!! 

Seriously mate, good brakes save ur life, shit ones well, will until one day, hopefully not, they don't!!

Don't skimp on brakes, they are up there with THE MOST important bits of safety kit on ur bike!

Swallow ur pride, bin them and take the credit card out for the day!!!!!!!!

You're winding us up surely!

I might consider using the rear ones, but there is no way I would have them as the main stoppers up front on a missile like a Gixxer thou.

My advice, for what it's worth; Bin em asap and get some real ones.

BTW: I just got through a set of Brembo road pads on my ZX12R in under 3000 miles. They were good with a lovely powerful feel to them, but as soft as shite. EBC or Ferodo next.
