What Fits My Bike
There are three types of brake pad
used on modern motorcycles and these fall into three groups, Organic,
Semi-metallic or Sintered.
Semi-metallic pads are blended with up to
30 or 50% cheap steel fiber, Organic pads are manufactured with
man-made fibers such as Kevlar or Twaron, bonded together with a
petro-chemical resin; Sintered metal pads are copper alloy fused
together under heat and pressure. EBC Brakes makes only Organic and
Sintered brake pads as they do not believe that the steel fiber
technology is suitable for motorcycle brakes for numerous reasons.
Organic pads have attracted many enthusiasts because of the way they
work. They are inherently easier on rotors and have a brake “feel”
preferred by many riders.
