Glafer Brake Pads: 1054 semi metallic or 1371 Sintered HH?

So I read through a TON of post when I did the search on brake Pads.

Still confused and when contacting Kawi dirrectly, they don't even know.
First off, is the rear OEM pads Sintered (HH) or Semi/organic?

With that said, I am set on getting Galfers, but from calling Galfer and a couple of dealerships, still confused if I should get the 1054 Semi-Metallic Carbon Compound Black Pads (GG rated) VS. Sintered Compound HH Pads (HH rated)?

10' Venti Mocha Latte spilled some of it, was too hot
11' Peppermint Mocha W/Extra Shot of Espresso
12' Eggnog Venti Latte
13' Bagel
14' Standard Drip (since a Venti latte went up 20 cents)

You definitely want sintered (HH) on the front of the bike. The back depends on how much braking you want. A GG pad would be fine back there and would be more difficult to lock by accident.

This is only for the back, so riding the bike, canyons, street, stunt, etc, would HH be better?

Anyone know what the stock/oem rear pads are?
