ZX14 brake pads

Ok so i have the ZX14 calipers for my 07 Zx10r and need to get some pads for them, i got a quote for the OEM pads today for $167AU per caliper, mates rates i can get it for $120. Still alot of money for pads, can someone recommend me another brand whish are as good for a cheaper price?

Stick with the OEM ones. You'll find cheaper pads, but they won't be as good as the OEM ones. If you've gone through the effort to upgrade to the ZX-14 calipers, don't cheap out on the pads.

I may not be perfect, but at least I don't ride a Suzuki.

With those calipers you dont need the EBC pads . Its just not necassary at all .they bite like a mofo. So I would just grab some off of ebay . OEM if possible .

These will do just fine

.. I have the ZX14 Calipers too and I use Fleabay pads . I have no problems at all . Mine were not these but similar in materials ..

Just went through my ebay purchases these are the ones i buy ..

http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/NEW-E...Q5fAccessories

these cost 95.99 at my local shop and cyclegear can get em for 86 so i bought em here .. I grabbed the rears too. Figured if i was doing the front might as well match up the rear. But im the kind of guy who changed my tires in pairs. I change the front every time i change the rear .. Weird I know but Im funny about my tires and chain

I've used EBC pads before and don't like them at all. They squeal, don't offer the initial bite or the feedback that I like, and seem to give off more brake dust than others. They seem to be the only pads in stock at most shops because of their lower price point and most people just don't care. For the money, they aren't too bad i guess, but the OEM pads perform way better IMO. Especially in the Nissin calipers.

And I'm also the type that replaces tires in pairs so I know what ya mean.
