eBay brake pads?

I'm going to need to do pads by the end of the season and I've been looking at options on eBay.

Is there any glaring reason NOT to buy a set of Kevlar pads from eBay for $23? It seems like the $23 sets (of 6 pads) are about the same as the $46 sets. I know you get what you pay for, but is there that big of a difference between them?

I'm not trying to start a those suck these are better argument, just a general, "they will or won't be fine", from people that have used these or similar.

Thank you for the input. Again, I'm not trying to get into an overly technical argument, but just general knowledge recomendations.

No word on those pads... but search on here for D2moto pads. A good following of folks who have reported very positve experience with them.

You can get all 3 sets for about 25 bucks on amazon.

D2Moto pads here. You can get all 3 sets for under $40 shipped to your door. I can't really notice a difference in stopping but the dust seems to be better

Ya know the saying.... Cheap ain't good, and good ain't cheap!
Then again, brakes are cool if you wanna stop all the fun lol.

Here's a thread that someone started about the D2Moto pads. It's a review thread https://www.roadglide.org/showthread.php?t=159977

For the price you'll be more than pleased. Just make sure you use a brake silicone grease on the back of the pads

For $#it's and giggles I went to the D2Moto website and they are out of stock on a lot of brake pads for our bike. It's apparent that the word is spreading fast about these pads
