i've just put a set allround on my kawasaki gpx600r, once bedded in they are bloody fantastic, the brakes on my bike are the size of milk bottle tops and it pulls up very well indeed

i would recommend them

I've been wondering about the Goldfren ceramic pads too. Been thinking about getting a set for the ZXR.
KR250 Tandem Twin (Naked) :mrgreen:
KR1 Red/White
KR1S Track Bike (has been put on hold for now)
ZXR750 H1 (Winter project)

I did a 1000 miles with them in my gpx600 and they were spot on, lots of feel and stopped loads better than ebc pads.

Maccas[/quote] only 7 out of 10 for me,ended up putting Old Mismatched EBC pads back in, sorry much better,ps these mainly for Track use other didn't seem to warm, this with braided hoses,back bleeding and overhauled calipers.

sometimes the more extreme the braking performance the more agressive the pad is on the rotors - your disks can wear out (may not be a problem with modern sintering)

"The GP5 provides low abrasive interaction with the brake rotor and a much quieter braking because the ceramic friction material. The GP5 series features a stainless-steel heat shield for thermal isolation."
