The stockers are cracking pretty bad,,not from abuse or hits either.

That's a Brembo part - there's another type of pad which wears much longer than the stock one. Found some for our G, but would have to look around to see what the part number was.

Seem to recall they were only $35 or so.

Found 'em. They were EBC brand.

Ive installed the ballistic evo2 8 cell in mine:
http://www.ballisticparts.com/produc...ries/8cell.php

it works very well fires up much faster. I live in a warm climate - not sure how well they go in sub zero. Was also a little bit fiddly reconnecting the leads and +ve terminal sits very close to the frame, so best to connect the negative terminal last.

I've had luck with the EBC brake pads...seem to get much more life than the stock pads. And they cost less. And they're better in the wet, grimy stuff that I generally find myself riding in.

Better in the wet. I'm definitely trying a pair. Even with the summer drought, we still had mud. Now that we've had 6 days of rain, this weekend's enduro course is going to be a swamp, but I won't be able to get them in time.

Hey inmates, I was cruising my usual regional threads and a ride mate referenced the link to a group buy. I've been eyeing the luggage rack but when I called, polish shipping is a pain in the ass. This fixes the problem

http://www.advrider.com/forums/showp...3&postcount=27

If Holan has any other 450 farkles, Jason can hook you up.

Stay thirsty you FFs

Question Engine guard... ?

The 450 in the picture showing the luggage rack also has an engine protection frame. I didn't find that on the Holan Web site. I'd be interested in learning more about that. Maybe it is a prototype or one off. It's bolted to the frame, so it may offer decent protection.

PM Jason and he can ask... I don't speak Polish.

It is so hard to find good farkles for the 450 or even good upgrades. I'm still looking for the magic kickstand solution.. And willing to pay top dollar if any of you FFs are engineers with welding skills.
