What brake pads to go with?

I have a 07 RG and time for brake pads. What kind should I go with that don't break the bank. I always have put EBC pads on my other bikes this will be the first brake pad change since new. Open to suggestions. Kevlar, Sintered, Ceramic?????

I always purchased the Lyndall Brake pads for my Road King. Will probably do the same when the time comes to replace the pads on my Road Glide. I purchased the Z-Plus, never had an issue.

I always had good luck with the stock brake pads from HD. Just ordered some back pads from PC PaiN and they were $39.56 + shipping.

I have Lyndall pads on my RG. Love 'em . Bought some of the cheap eBay pads for my RK & performed quite well but my friend put some on his EG & they squeal like his bike is being raped.

Have n still use ECB on my other bike (s), the metalic ones, they will keep the rotors shined. Have always liked the water groove on em. Use oem on rear of 03 RG for ease of changing out and have saved ass many times with no glaze. This time I put ECB organic's on front (be sure to have right level of fluid!!!),yes there is. Hated em, took off, realized it was me (hea), they have a good feel, solid, and seem to resist locking, I use my fronts alot

Yep, Lyndall Racing Brakes (or LRB) for sure... been using them for a looooong time. Work very well and virtually NO brake dust with Z+ or Gold versions and Gold works best on heavy-weight scoots like ours.

Bring 'em home or send us back!!

Lyndall Racing most definitely!

I have their Rotors and Pads on my 02 FLTR...wouldn't use anything else.

Their products are solid and their C/Service is outstanding...nothing but love.

P.S. You'll find your wheels and tires will stay much cleaner with the Lyndall's...plus their stopping power is second to none.

Cheers,
