Not quite ready for new pads yet, but like to be prepared and have a full set on-hand. What type, make, part # would you recommend for an 06 Z ?
thanks

Ive always been a fan of the EBC Double H sintered metallic pads, myself.

Part #? ??????

OK, thanks. Do you know if the Z comes standard with sintered pads? I understand that if you put sintered pads on a bike that's equipped for non-metalic pads, that it will eat the rotors. I know my 03 Vulcan can't use sintered pads.
Thanks again
Phil

+1 to this.
When I bought the pads for my ZX14 the part numbers were the same for it, the Councours and the Z1000. (07 model) I believe the 06 and 07 to be the same. Matter of fact I ordered rear pads for a Z and fronts for a Connie because it said they was out of mine...same part too. Epic fail in my book.

I'm getting a set of Carbone Lorraines for my bike soon, along with braided lines.

Is the Gen1 sintered or not?
EBC seem to be cheaper than the OEM's, some guy told me i need pads already...im at 17000 km...im going to measure tonight. I think he just wanted to sell and install pads..

Change them yourself, it's stupid simple. I've heard wonderful things about the HH sintered pads. That's probably the route I'm going once its time to change.

Well with cars, which require way more work than our bikes cost on avg. 75-100 per axle. Just curious, how much is the usual for bikes. But its like two bolts and a pin on bikes. Save some money and definitely do it yourself.

25.00 per caliper plus the pads that cost 30 to 40.00 each caliper.

BTW my 2012 has 300 miles on it and I already have the EBC HH pads to replace the factory ones.....if I can remember where I put them. :rolleyes:

just a bump.

I put the EBC's on, got em for $35 a caliper

NIGHT AND ****ING DAY!

im so impressed, mind you my oem pads were 18xxx km and about 2mm left on the pad.
my bike stoppies so well, i cant believe i rode with those old pads for so long.
Only annoying this is the rear brake is almost too powerful now. super fun.
