    Hi all, due for replacement front brake pads and Brembo are just about non existent in Australia. I can get EBC HH pads, can anyone recommend them or have an alternative.
    Cheers, John.

    I just bought some Brembo’s from Omniaracing in Italy. Shipping was quick and very reasonable.

    Thanks Robert, postage within Europe is probably ok but these days getting anything posted to Oz usually doubles the price, e.g.....

    Same problem, international postage is ridiculous these days. I liked the look of this tail bag but postage kills it...

    John, I can get you both the brake pads and the US$140 Saddleman Tail Bag for a reasonable cost... most are quite happy with the amounts I charge for shipping and import fees. Write me direct email; Info at GuzziTech.com if interested.

    The EBC HH pads are not that bad. I don't like them personally, for a street bike they are too aggressive for my tastes (too much initial bite). But they aren't that bad. Personally I would go with an organic pad, which they should have. Or you could go with a ceramic pad, which they probably don't offer (but others do).
    I would also look at SBS and Ferodo.

    Organic pad for the rear because the initial bite of the EBC pads can cause rear wheel lock up with unwanted consequences, especially with the CARC models (don't ask me how I know!).

    But it's much harder to lock up the front, and I want a brake pad that will stop me, so EBC HH pads are the choice.

    Guys, please, I offer from organic to carbon brake pads on the online STORE link above.
    I'm still not a (long-time) fan of EBC HH for street or track because of how harsh they are on the disks. That said they do work well, but as Michael says above, initial bite is tenacious. Would be terrible for the rear pads.
