The only Solution is Revolution.

Note:kenneth is a good friend rather than my previous US boss. one year ago, the boss said Obama is better than Bush when Obama just won the election. Now i don't know whether he was disappointed or not.

How about getting me a set for my 2000 Kawasaki ZRX1100 and I'll do the same thing Ken did. Maybe it will help your R&D department.
ok, you can mail me, but you should afford the freight.

Richel, I'd be interested in trying a set, but your motorcycle page doesn't show my model ('03 Sprint ST) application.

Do you have more part numbers?

Ken, how did you order the pads for the 'Strom? And, did you get organic or sintered metal?

I got their top o' the line organics. Interestingly, my comparo was to sintered Ferodos, which is actually a plus for the Yongli's, considering they perform equally and have less rotor wear.

To get the pads, email Rachel at ylbrake@gmail.com. All I did was tell her make/model/year and pay the freight. They shipped via UPS International. Cost was $28 to ship the set for 3 calipers. I used PayPal.

Cool!

I'm running EBC organics now, which I like a lot. However, I believe I'm approaching the end of their service life.

It seems that we only have the pad for rear. No front one.

The EBCs get a lot of good comments on Stromtrooper.com. I believe they have an "HH" version?

Yep, the HH is the sintered metal, IIRC.

I gotta try and check the pads on the bike. The garage is hotter than... well, it's really hot.

I'm in the 'Run from one A/C system to the other' mode right now.

The heat and hummiditty has been almost unbearable the last week or so.

In the words of the Abominable Snowman to Bugs Bunny, "Gosh, it's hot!"

Yongli brake pads continue to stop my motorcycle. Seem to be better than the OEMs and at least as good as the Ferodos I compared them to.

P'Rod is going to buy some. "Hands across the water" and all that stuff.
