Different front brake pads?

Post by AllanP » Tue Nov 28, 2017 5:58 am

The Brembo M50 front brakes on our bikes are very good, but I would prefer a little more initial bite. Not all-out track performance but a little bit sharper on first application with less lever effort. Anyone got any suggestions for alternate brake pads?

I'd be very interested to hear what sort of difference they made for you and also get a part number if you have it handy.

I find them really good Allan, i also fitted them on my EX 1290R, and i have them on my multistrada. they are Vesrah VD9031RJL, they are factory pads for GSXR1000, and the HP4 BMW.

Thanks Dave. These seem well suited to what I'm looking for and I just ordered some :D

They are a very high quality pad, and they last well also, the origonal pads seem to lack initial brake power, then as they heat they bite harder, the Vesrah have good initial bite and progressive, the power is in your fingers.

My pair of Vesrah brake pads arrived last week. A bit embarrassing though, because a "pair" was two pads not two sets of pads and I had to order another pair to make up the set :mrgreen:

The other pads arrived, I got the bike and the calipers cleaned up and fitted them, and just got back from 150m/240km ride to bed them in. I think they will probably bed in a bit more, but already I can see they're a step up in responsiveness and power from the Brembo's but not fierce like some race pads can be. They're easy and predictable to use, and I'd feel perfectly comfortable riding with them in the wet.
Happy :D
