    Hy,

    what brake pads do you use in your BRP?

    I've been using stock and very happy with brake performance...than changed to another brake pad model and brake performance reduced dramatically (dont know which, probably ebay non-genuine Golfren AD).

    Now considering to change to EBC MX-S or EBC X or TT...anyone with feedback on this or that have good experience with another pads?

    Maybe be more generalized in your question. The xrr doesn't have unique brakes, and neither do any of the other bikes.

    Maybe ask what the pref is? Metal vs carbon vs rubber soles on shoes.

    i used the same pair of i think EBC pads for both my dirt and street wheels, but i should have seperate pads for each set of wheels as i think i lost quite a bit of life on them each time i changed them. not helpful to you though. sorry. haha

    Just installed WRP offroad sintered pads...and braking power performance is so much better.

    About EBC MX-S and another EBC X or TT pads I just ordered some and I'll try next time.
