Does anyone know if there is a company that makes ceramic brake pads for motorcyles...especially the M109R? I have heard and read that ceramic brakes are the best you can get for an automobile, and I was wondering if they are available for the 9.

Someone, anyone, please let me hear from you on this.

Thanks.

EBC Double-H Sintered pads are ceramic. They use sintered copper fibers embedded in a ceramic compound. I run them front and rear and love them. DLP sells them here.

I just put these on a couple days ago, and they are twice the braking power of the stockers, and my rims are not dusted with black dust every time I get home. They work really well.

Answered my question. I believe I have cleaned my wheels way more times than the rest of the bike. Might be worth getting even before the stockers need replacing

Thanks Seapup, Gramps, and Nemo. I saw those on the DLP website when I was trying to locate ceramic brakes for the 9, but I had no idea those were ceramic. The price is very reasonable as well.

I will be putting them on both of my 9s during the winter months.

Thanks again.

Everyone that I know who runs these pads really likes them and state that they are better then the stock pads.

:agree: I noticed some very drastic brake fade when they got wet but I didn't have to clean my wheels as often if that makes up for not being able to stop!

Has anyone on here had experience with SBS brake pads? Like to hear some reviews if you have used them.

Wow, this post came at a PERFECT time. i ve got a really loose rear rotor and was gonna buy those same EBc pads and swap 'em out since ill have the rotor off for a day while i sqeeze the bushings a bit tighter. i live in the Pacific northwest and we are known for getting a little rain here and there...not much really, only like 330 days a year ! the rest of the time its cloudy and only DAMP !

putting those EBC's on would not be a good idea around here based on those reviews of thier performance when wet.

i dont care to start a ride in the rain and usually wont, but around here you start off sometimes when its clear and an hour later its a downpour !
