EBC Double H Brake Pads - FA231HH
Customer Product Reviews
Braking felt poor on my OEM pads, they weren't worn or anything, just poor performance. Swapped them out for these and there's an instant huge improvement. No problems with fitting the pads. Great service and delivery time from Sportsbikeshop, as always, even during the C19 outbreak. Packaged sensibly. Fitted to Bandit 650 k6. Remember to buy both sides, you'll need the other set as they are "sided " on the bandit anyway.
Great improvement from OE
The pads themselves are brilliant, I recently upgraded pads and lines on my SV650s and has made an incredible difference, however make sure you buy them with the FA229HH as this are not transferable left to right, they are sided!! All in all, great product and great service from the guys as SBS
Good stopping power
These pads are great, had them before, will have them again, always gives you a good progressive feel, much more efficient than standard pads, great for a not so lightweight bike. A definite buy if you want more stopping power. Sportsbikeshop were great as usual with delivery & on price. Note: These are to be paired up with the FA229HH pads.
Slow bad, stop good
Only tried them on the way to the MOT place but they feel very solid. I've tried cheaper one Goldring? and these seem to be much better But... took several days to arrive. Sportsbikeshop will not be my first choice of supplier in the future.
I wouldn't look elsewhere to be honest
Ordered these brake pads to replace the exact same type having been impressed with their performance. I wouldn't look elsewhere to be honest. Fair price, good performance, can be used all year round, what more can you want? I cannot comment on longevity since the previous set I had were on the bike when I purchased it and were already very worn. One thing to be aware of is when you first put these pads on the bike take it easy. In summary, the pads need to bed in and so it's not advisable to make your first test ride a spirited one. The best way to get over this, is to go for as long a ride, in mileage, as possible and just keep using them with every chance. On my bike, these pads fit the rear and one side of the front with the other being (FA229HH) and so please use your manual, Fowlers or another source to check the code on your brake pads (of course you could just remove the old ones and take a photo of each side to be sure when it comes to ordering). I haven't covered many miles with this new set, but they're sharp as can be expected and stop the weight of me, a heavy bike and some heavy luggage with ease. Very impressed. Hold no reservations in ordering for the front when the time comes. SBS the go to place as always.
So much more woa and feel than OEM pads. Other side is FA229HH. High mileage all weather use, all road, these pads have been outstanding. On their own fantastic, but combined with Hel lines transforms the front end braking on the SFV650. Sportsbikeshop excellent, as always.
