Replacing Rear Brake Pads w/ Lyndall pads

Anyone who has replaced the rear pads with Lyndall pads - my new pads came in today (same stock number front and rear) While the HD manual does not mention putting anything on the back side of tha pads - I've seen that referenced here in various posts about a mask and some kind of goop. So here's my question for those who have installed the Lyndall (Gold) on the rear - did you put something on the back of the pads or not? If you did - what was it?

This items are what I use on the Lyndall pads as well as any other brakes I do.

The disk brake quiet comes in a gel form and may be better suited for this job. Last time I used the spray I accidentally got some on the bottom part of the brake pads where they slide in the caliper, which is where the Anti Seize is used. Well they started squealing because they weren't sliding like they should so I pulled the pads and found where the over spray was on them. Cleaned up the pads, reapplied the disk brake quiet and the anti seize, properly this time, and all is well again.

Another item worth making note of, the anti seize must not get on the surface of the pads.

Brake job is done. Went with disc brake quiet all around. Sure do like have a new pair of shoes. Rear pads where at .05 mm so it was definately time to replace them. Could have easily gone another 5 k on the OEM front pads. 25500 on the bike, mostly one up conservative (most of the time) riding although I've been know to scrap my boards in the twisties once in awhile.

The Lyndall Gold+ pads seem to be the most recommended for large touring bikes. So we'll see how they run.

Like them just fine - seem to have much better grabbing power and a nice feel to them when they engage. But thats with only 150 miles on them. I wouldn't feel comfortable trying to give them a real review without more miles on them in various settings.

I have used nothing but Lyndall pads on my my last bike and this one as well...
every once in a while there will be some discussion on which pads are the best and EBC are thrown in for consideration...
Lyndall are a really nice pad and seems far superior than the HD pads as far as stopping performance and lack of dust...
there customer service is second to none...Great customer service
I personally don't know much about the various compositions of the materials used in the 2 manufactures but have considered trying the EBC and see how they perform especially on the rear with that big tire...
The Lyndall seem to be leaving allot of dust all over the wheel and don't seem the life is very good...One the 150 tire the rear pads lasted quite a while and was practically dust free...
I don't know if they have changed the composition of materials on the rear or its just the nature of the beast...
just my 2 cents

I put the HD pads back on mine , I have had better luck with the HD pads with Brembo brakes , few bucks less , I change mine at 20,000 whether they need it or not , there's not much material left by then , especially on the rear
