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)?

:dontknow:

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?

I would go organic on the back.
