Brake pads

What is the best set of pads for a 97 1500se? Any information would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks, Steveonski up here in the great white north eh.

I prefer the OEM pads for mine. A lot of folks like the EBC pads. I guess either one would be fine. The Honda pads are about 70% higher than the EBC pads if that is a consideration. I have been getting mine at Cyclemax.

I use OEM brake pads on my '99 Gold Wing. Did use EBC once but went back to OEM.

Just my preference but others may like different brands.

ebc part FA69 is used in everything from ATVs to Wings. HH temp/friction rating same cold and hot

BellBoy- when you say 70% higher do you refer to thickness of pad, or the price?

I just got new Rear OE pads from CM, will compare thickness of pad material to some low miles EBC coming off the Wing.

In Canada buying most anything from Honda involves a second mortgage.

Just did, doesn't sound like sintered brakes are a good idea on a wing, being no fade, with two finger stopping power.
Apparently the brakes are pressed and heated at the same time as being infused with copper, giving them superior proformance?
