Aftermarket brake pads with stock rotor
In my quest to improve the braking after getting SS line and changing the brake fluid for RBF600 I improved the hydrolic force to the pads and got better braking but the nice brake bite and feel I used to have on my ZZR1200 is still not there.
I don't have any experience with aftermarket pads... I've read a lot about EBC HH sintered pads or Vesrah RJL... but before I put does on I have a few questions for those of you who used them with stock rotor.
Do these pads wear the rotor faster then with stock brake pads? Or do they heat them up to high?
Do they work well in normal street condition i.e mild street braking? I'm sure they work well on track days...but I still want brake when off the track or not doing aggresive street riding.
What about rain condition do they work well when wet?
Thanks for your help
