I still prefere the original Nissin but as you said the price is stupid.

Alternative
Carbon Lorain from STG.
Price is good and pads are great.

I have the EBC Double Sintered's. Not too sure if it is just me, but they feel like they do not have the bite the OEM's did.
yeah I have these as-well they get better once heated up, but the OEM pads had way more of an initial bite than the EBC's ill be going back to stock after these wear out.

+1

I also installed the EBC Double H Sintered, and they're pretty good, but the OEM pads were really good. I plan on switching back to them as well.

OEM's on my street 675 are totally fine. For my race bike though, I have tried several options.

OEM - Tried them when I first started out, they were fine but it seemed that I went through them pretty quickly.

EBC HH - Good feel, initial bite was pretty good.. Used them through novice and intermediate.

Carbon 55? - Stop on a dime, a little grabby but great nonetheless and good wear. Still on my original set from last season. Use them in advanced and for racing. Will buy a new set come mid season.

I have the OEM in both my street R for the road and My Daytona race bike.
I find they do not last as long as others in the race bike but I am yet to find a pad that has the initial bite and feel, so I'm stuck with the $175.50 (for both calipers) every 4-6 race meetings.

I agree with all the comments about the OEM pads, they have a much better feel, im using the EBC HH but will be going back to OEM next time.. Yes the OEM wear fast on the track - not:cool2:.

After posting the earlier reply I had to go and buy a new set of pads for racing this weekend, so in I go and low and behold the price is now $195.00 per side, that's nearly $400 for pads, so for this weekend I'll be using SBS pads for $120 instead.
I was also told that front rotors were $640 a pair last year they are now $640 each, WTF are they doing, for that price of spares I can nearly justify the cost of racing a superbike again.

Umm... kinda lost here. So i was looking at the prices everyone was posting on OEM's and got slightly curious as to how much Bike Bandit wanted for them.

It looks like they are about $60 a side, (without shipping). Are we still talking about the same parts?
