Having use HH to Kevlar on most every bike I have owned it seems trying to find a balance in rotor wear/dust/initial bite and fade. I recently swapped out the OEM HHs on my '17 GSA for the new EBC V pads as I have never really learned to like the way HHs grab and chew up my rotors. I am late braker BTW. I liked the feel of the Vs so much I put them on my Duc 848 and '85 GPz Turbo. They took about 200 miles to bed into the the old GPz, but the Duc and BMW were immediate. I left the Galfer Greens (kevlar) on the KTM for now. Dust seems to be way down and the bite is great with nearly no fade.

Current rides:'17 R1200GSAL, 2009 KTM 450EXC, 2008 Ducati 848 Superbike, 1985 Kawasaki GPz 750 Turbo
Former rides:'64 Honda 50, '70 Honda CB450CL, '82 Kawasaki 550GPz, '85 Kawasaki 750GPz Turbo, '84 Kawasaki 1100 GPz FI, '00 Honda CBR1100xx, '03 BMW K1200GT, '05 Kawasaki KLR650, '07 BMW K1200GT, '09 BMW R1200RT, '13 Triumph Tiger Explorer XC. Yes, motobikes are my primary mode of trans!
