Best Brake Pad Type???

Hey all...

Gonna order some brake pads for the front of my 2010 RZR800. What brand/type is the best. I was looking on Rocky Mtn... is there a site vendor with a better deal?

Mostly typical rocky/muddy trail riding here in Pennsylvania. Not out mud bogging all the time but do go through some standing water and occasional mud pits.

Carbon? Sintered? Severe Duty?

What brand?

Where to purchase?

We do mostly heavy mud riding here in Alabama and I have a friend who swears by the carbo kelvlar brake pads on ebay. They are priced right to. My buddy says they last the longest of any he has used, ans has been through many different more expensive brands. I just put a set on my machine and they seem to be built well but i cannot attest to how long they last as i have not used my machine recently. here is a link to the pads. the seller ships very quickly too

Re: Best Brake Pad Type???

Bump...Anyone know of aftermarket replacement pads made by a reputable manufacturer? Ie..a manufacturer that carries pads for many different vehicle types and of known reputation (good rep, that is)

Stay away from carbon fiber pads from ebay. 42 miles and they were shot. 1200 miles from factory pads.

Thanks Brad. If I deviate from stock it would only be to go with a known, quality manufacturer. Chinese EekBay crap is too much of an unknown for me.
