Opinions on front pads for street/track use
I spent countless hours reading posts about Galfer, EBC, Vesrah, etc. but I don't remember any of them decisively stating the actual application of use.
The vast majority of the threads are about fixing KHI's below spec brake system. I don't have issue with the brakes on the street. But I know the speech, "ZX6/ZX14, SS lines, bleeding, racial/brembo"...however, I am not commited to making this a track only bike since I 'plan' on getting a track only bike this winter.
Here is what I need to know:
My Gen2 is mostly a commuter that sees the occasional country road twisties, but will see 3 track days this year (2 of the 3 days will be novice). Is there a pad that will function for both track and street that are better than the stockers? Or will I have to put on a set for the track, then switch back for the street? Advantages/disadvantages of the choices?
Thanks in advance for the help.
