I have stock rotors on my bike, and a guy gave me some kevlar pads from ebc, will these work with the stock rotors and if so, are they any good?
TIA

Hmm...from what I've heard, Kevlar pads will work fine on stock rotors. The problem occurs when you use sintered pads on stock rotors. Once you use sintered pads, you must stick with them because they coat your rotors which will work as lubrication for non-sintered pads, thus reducing your braking power.

If anyone else can add insight to this question, please do.
