Actually, no. They continue with the "Yes, we have no front pads for you!" status.

I'm looking at an outfit down your neck o' the woods, Ken. $18.95 a set, Free shipping. www.nichesupply.com. And there is an outfit in AZ that sells a pair for $14.40 plus $10 shipping. And these are sintered metal. Not being a skinflint (okay, so I am a skinflint!), but I do wonder how the 'bahgin' pads perform.

Honestly, unless you're buying Top O' The Line Super-Duper Pads From Hell, there probably isn't a detectable difference. Rotor wear from metallic pads is what I don't like; I don't race, so the "nth degree" of braking just isn't that big a deal to me. Orgasmic ones are fine.

Well you shouldn't be using the front brake anyhow, it'll lock up and throw you over the handle bars.....

I had pretty good service out of the OEM pads on my Triumph, can't remember what I paid for them but I tend to not cheap out on brake pads. I just bought a set of OEM's for my decker but I haven't gotten around to putting them on yet. They're both fairly soft and horrendously expensive however but I love the way the ABS Brembo's work on the bike so I don't want to skew the equation with harder pads.

Besides, they say Harley-Davidson on them so they must be good.........

Cheaping out on brake pads is usually a bad idea but now we gots Klazy Ken to beta test them for us!

I saw that, but refuse to open the thread. WTF is a Unicorn Dazzler? Or is it better left alone?

Thanks for Ken to enjoy his review about our brake pads. Because increasing busy work, i haven't visit this forum for a long time. Because the increasing busy production, we won't offer free samples for evaluation any longer.

Rachel is an excellent businessperson and a lovely person. Yongli brake pads present an excellent value proposition for the motorcycle rider.

Really.

Its.......A FACT!
