    I replaced my rear pads at 14000 miles. They were only half worn but I wanted to try double H rated like my other bikes.

    Here's my part number research:

    Front Brakes:

    Ebc HH rated pads

    FA244HH

    EPFA244HH

    same as 2009-2011 Stalvio

    Ducati monster, Tuono, Same as 1998-2007 Victory Models


    Rear Brakes:

    Ebc HH rated pads

    FA209/2HH

    Same as 1998-2007 Victory Models

    Using:
    DP on the front SDP630 HH+
    full stintered and amazing stopping power once bedded in.
    Have been on the bike for about 9000 miles and are maybe...1/3 worn.
    I am using just a generic stintered pad on the rear. Sorry don't remember the brand.

    I ride two up most of the time and never worry about stopping quickly with this setup. FWIW, I have used DP HH+ on several different bikes and have never failed to be impressed with their stopping power. I also use Motul RBF600 brake fluid.

    Had my tires changed at the local Triumph dealership, rear pads needed to be changed. They used the same as Triumph Thunderbird, i guess. I am still bedding them in, feels ok at this point.

    FWIW, why not just change the pads before the trip? As every mm of cargo space is dear it would be cheap peace of mind the install new ones and you'd have perfect brakes for the journey. Best place to carry new pads is in the calipers.

    Good point. I had already decided to do just that when the new one arrive Monday. I'll stick the old half-worn ones in the tool box for a back-up if needed later.

    Had the rear pads replaced at 3746 miles, 6,000 K, when the rear tire was replaced. Sorry I don't know the part #'s but the new ones came in a Brembo package. Somewhat surprised at how few miles they lasted.

    The tech was surprised too, asked if I'd been riding the rear brake. I pointed to the slightly scuffed wear bars on the discarded, well rounded rear, tire and asked "What do you think?" Same tech that asked If I'd been trying to lift the front at every intersection. Cheeky blighter :-D. Still my respect for his diagnostic skills went up a notch, I'll have to stop doing that...

    Thanks all for replacement part numbers and other bikes for reference. Hard to find sites that include MG in there Manufacturer selection.

    A couple more for the rear brake.

    Premier P270
    Ferodo FDB2006

    I have purchased the Premier P270 (organic) as I am a light user of the rear brake (in theory, it's half worn already). I'll let you know how they work for me when they are installed.
