Here is a thread on Lyndall pads that a lot of people highly recommend as well.

I have good luck with the HD brake pads. They are easy to get that is one advantage to of using the HD brake pads, most dealers have them in stock.

I'm going to try a set of Lindall Gold this next change. Haven't used them yet, but want to give 'em a try.

Brembo brakes drag down super cars of all nationalities... There is a theory that pads are tuned to the Brembo caliper, and in a weird sort of way it makes sense.

I would hope the stock pads are tuned to the stock Brembo calipers...but...

Either way, I can make me fall down with a stick in the spokes too, so my guess is any quality pad would do about the same.

When I replace mine, I am going stock HD or Brembo... Or just with a stick...grin.

...and I used to think my Sportster was heavy...

First thing I did when I brought it home was put Lynall's Z-plus pads on. Not quite as dirty as stockers, non corrosive, and really lock things up!
