I haven't try then, but DP brake pads have been good to me:

I've never really looked into the difference between all of these pads, I tried EBC once many many years ago, great stopping power but they eat disks rather quickly.

I am a more sedate rider now anyhow, just want a good all round pad really, I usually just stay with OE ones but just like with many other parts, are we just paying more for nothing??

I use the EBC pads and yes they stop well and not noticed any issues.  :169:

I have just bought genuine Triumph front pads, paid £35.00 and £25.00 for the rear, again genuine parts.
I think it was Blade Motorcycles, triumph dealer, they have a few shops around, Performance Triumph in Stratford upon Avon one of them, these pads came from Swindon.

That's interesting, I'll be checking the price of these parts at my local dealer on Monday then.
