    Hey folks - I'm having a surprisingly hard time finding an answer to this one, even after checking the manual which only seems to list diameter and thickness in the specs section.

    Which brands / types of brake pads am I supposed to buy when I replace the ones on my front disc brake for a '78 R100RS?

    (Also, are there any stupid-proof guides for changing pads? The manual has a couple things in it I found wacky)

    Heres a shot of the front wheel if it's helpful - I appear to have the "Type A" calipers from what I can tell:

    Agreed with Nobby on this one. Running them on both my 90’s. So far seems to be a great pad. Make sure you set them right and they will be sweet.
