HH sintered brake pads

Hey Guy's,
Has anyone used the Gafler Gold, HH sintered front brake pads on their 950/990 ?
My local shop got them by mistake. I ordered the green for front and black at rear which seems to work well for me.
Any feed back ? Try them or send them back ?
Thanks,
Killer Whale KTM

I have sintered pads on my sport bike and love it. Only issue I know of is that you're not supposed to use them with an ABS system.

Try them and if you don't like them I'll take them off your hands.

Why shouldn't you use sintered pads with ABS ?

Second that question? I was planning on moving to sintered pads myself since I'm used to that kind of stopping power.

If you pull up the KTM parts list it says in there that you're not supposed to order their sintered pads for the ABS model. Beyond that I have know idea.

Most likely has to do with the abs computer's calibration of how much pressure to release to avoid lockup versus the torque of the pads being different.

HH pads tend to be a little grabby but have excellent braking power cold or hot. No idea why you couldn't use them with a ABS equipped bike...sounds like yet another reason to avoid ABS to me.

Yep. That's the exact reason I ripped mine out. Well, that and I hated the way the ABS kicked in. Mainly the pads though.

Thanks for the replies. I'll see if I can swap them. Currently the only time my abs seems to kick in, is when I hit the rear hard. A few times on sketchy on road conditions , I'm pretty sure it's saved my butt. Grabby brakes don't have much appeal, that's for sure ! Probably new green pads and new fluid will give me the one finger stops I'm looking for.
Thanks,
Killer Whale KTM
