EBC HH Brake Pad Part Numbers

Hey guys,
My Tiger 800 ABS is due for brake pads and I just want to make sure I'm ordering the right ones (stupid EBC web site doesn't have their catalogue online anymore).

From what I've been able to gather, the front is FA226HH and the rear is FA140HH. Can anyone who has installed EBC HH brake pads on their Tiger 800 confirm?

Thanks!

Everybody orders their stuff through one of the distributors. You can use their online catalogs, to get the correct part numbers. PU offers EBC. You may consider DP brakes, too.

Thanks!!
So for the record, ADV world, it is indeed the FA226HH for the front and FA140HH for the rear on the Tiger 800.

You're welcome.

I used to manage a parts department. Rather than act "holier than thou" to my customers, I'd always take the time to enlighten them as to what information is out there. In the end, I think it makes for a more informed and appreciative group of people.

Haha! I must've been editing to add the application link as you posted the above response.

With all your wrenching talent on the 1050, I expected that you could read a catalog.

I'm starting to get worried. Does riding a Tiger make us, ummmm, slower. First one guy puts his front wheel on backwards, then another can't read a catalogue... sh!t maybe there's something to this. I forgot to plug the fuel pump back in when I was checking the valves on my wife's Street Triple and had to pull the whole fricking thing apart again. Now that was a Street Triple but my Tiger was watching me the whole time.

That's OK.

I just did a F&R tire change on a Yamaha Stratoliner. The selling Yamaha dealer did the last set of tires, a couple years ago. The front wheel was in backwards. Easy to tell, when only one side of the wheel has a hub cover and the other side is exposed with a nice arrow to tell the "mechanic" which way it goes. On top of that, they scratched the front fender and only tightened one of the rear caliper bolts. Every bolt I encounted was of a differing level of tightness. Some people have laughed at my religious use of a torque wrench, but, I know that somebody's life is in my hands.

Likewise, I just did a F&R tire change on a Victory Vision. The selling Victory dealer did the last tire change. Both wheels were gouged like someone was operating a tire machine for the first time. At least, all the bolts felt evenly torqued.

I get a lot of business, in my home shop, because I use a No-Mar tire machine, torque wrenches, and give fair prices on tires and services. Glad to know my OCD is good for something, other than stress.

Crap, see I'm doing it all wrong. I have the same setup but haven't been charging my riding buddies a damn thing to change their tires. I'm like you and try to use a torque wrench any time I'm working in the shop. A good friend who is a very good mechanic laughs at me and says the last time he used a torque wrench was to pass his test in school. He does use a torque wrench for heads etc.

I wish you were in the Bay Area... I'd come to you for service. I love OCD mechanics...

Is that the Orange County Backcountry Discovery Route? What are we going to take side roads from mall to mall? Maybe we all get fake boobies at the end of the trip...
