2018 Road Glide Special... best brake pads out there.

I have a 2018 Road Glide Special, need to replace front brake pads soon and rear so what’s out there? Like to find something last longer yet clean and has good performance.

Got Galfer pads front and rear on mine. No problems and no noise.

htf can you need to replace front and rear pads on a 2018 already? i'm still on the original front pads on my 2013, only had to replace the rear because it wasn't grabbing as good as i thought it should. i should mention also that i have about 45,000 miles on my bike.

if you go through pads that fast, check out d2moto.com i picked up a set of 3 pads on sale for $20. yes, they were organic as opposed to sintered, but organic pads will wear your rotors less, have less brake dust and many people prefer the way they feel. they will need to be replaced sooner, but they're cheap enough and easy to replace.

I understand the concept of reality, but find it too confining for a way of life.

Lyndall has always been my choice. I have been doing some research on the Galfer pads as I have heard some good reviews.

You need to do brake lines at the same time to maximize your braking power
