I have fitted front & rear EBC HH pads (standard discs) together with braided hoses and braking is vastly improved.  Mainly the effort required to stop is much less, so I now only need two fingers on the brake lever, which means blipping the throttle on downshifts is a lot easier.

The EBC X Series discs got good write ups in a recent Performance Bikes magazine.

Can't comment on the other makes.

Suzuki 1300R Hayabusa 2009

Hi Dave

I hear the race guys running 2006 GSXR 1000's which run the same calipers as yours(not the same discs though) think the Standard factory Suzuki pads work as well as anything else?so if there cheaper could be the way to go?but EBC and Brenbo pads are exellent.

Good Luck

Tokico I presume?  In the thou they work great - totally dependable all weathers, not too drastic loss of friction when cold, or increase when wet.  Track capable too.  Suzuki's parts prices aren't as bad as they once were.

I hated EBC HH, snatchy squealy things when wet - like unsafe to stop hard on unless you get a chance to warm and dry them first...

I've used EBC HH pads for years. They're fantastic.

Carbon Lorraine are also apparently very good.
