They are going on my bike next - I'm warped my way through several front disks already - they do not warp like OEM ones, and they look soooo sweet....

I rode a 600 with them on recently, and the brakes where very good, comparable to my 750 with goodridge hoses, and green pads, yet this had rubber hoses, and apparently standard pads.

EBC green pads is part of your problem. Try the HH they work SOOOO much better.

<font size="2" face="Verdana, Arial">Yeah - I had those before - but due to a being a lame-ass, I bought the wrong ones when I swapped them out - they are getting down fairly quick, so I figure they will be replaced fairly soon.

The question is though - do I spring for the wave rotors, and sell my 2000 mile old OEM ones this time too ?

<font size="2" face="Verdana, Arial">HH pads are high performance pads with a sintered metal compound. They wear quickly, butthey are really nice to use.

The greens I have are longer lasting, but not as good


I am thinking of going for the wave rotors, but only when I need to replace my pads.....

I am not a heavy braker - I am not that fast at all really


My HH's lasted about 5000 miles or so - the greens have been in for about 2500 and are not really showing any signs of imminent death.

The standard Pads are pretty good - I have also run Carone Loaraine HH's (nice but take warming), and "full kevlar" which where helpless - I threw them away after only a few miles.....

I would stick with OEM, maybe add braided hoses if your brakes get mushy, when you need to replace get HH's for a change maybe ?

<font size="2" face="Verdana, Arial">My suggestions ?

1) Stick with the OEM until they are shot.

2) Get EBC HH pads - they are great

3) When you have warped rotors, replace them with Ti ot Wave rotors.

Basically the stock ones are great, EBC HH pads are a better. The stock rotors are very good but prone to warping at track days with race-pads....
