Hey guys the titles says it all while I have the 9 broken down and the rotors getting polish I am going to replace the brake pads. So what is the best brake pads I can get that will give me the least dust on my rims?

I vote stock pads. I don't get much dust at all in the 3-4 weeks between washes. But I also don't pound the brakes unnecessarily.

Don't forget, the trade off most of the time is - less dust, less brake feel. You get more of an initial bite with dustless type ceramic, but as a general rule you need a hybrid pad (ceramic/semi met) to get that modulation rather than just on/off.

My stockers dusted my rims bad, Every time I went out, and brakes felt spongy. Went with the ceramic sintered? and twice the braking and hardly any dust. Maybe i just got lucky LOL

Here's a great article and graph for you. We're not racing these bikes, so it's not a huge deal, just expanding on what I said earlier.

Graph: Ceramic vs. Semi metallic(note the friction levels at right)

Great reading!

Stockers aren't bad IMHO :dontknow:.

My front is hardly ever dirty, and since I installed my Roadhouse pipes with the tips turned out, my rear wheel is much cleaner as well.

Same ones the dealer here carrys. Great so far. Seemed to take a while to burn in the front pads though.
I don't think my front took 50 miles, and wow , when I just started to apply the brake, It was right there, The stockers I really had to squeeze to get the feeling of they were braking. Maybe its just me but,,,,

Broski, ummmm, those aren't ceramic. I went to the EBC site, and they don't make a ceramic pad. Those are sintered alloy. Hence why you aren't experiencing any issues with bite.

There was a thread posted here somewhere and they had an article about them saying copper impregnated ceramic. Maybe i mis read the article, If so my bad. I just know they work LOL

Found where I got my info from,,,,,,,,,,,

From EBC's website,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,, There's a comma after each, Maybe the ceramic are a totally separate pad.

Types of brake pads manufactured include Kevlar® brake pads , sintered brakes, ceramic brake pads and carbon long life brake pads. The EBC Brake rotor brake disc range includes cast iron brake rotors or brake discs for automobiles, stainless steel brake rotors for motorcycles, mountain bike brake pads and mountain bike brake rotors and ATV brake pads
