Brake pads
« on: March 08, 2016, 06:13:25 pm »
Had a squeal from front brake this morning so pulled the pads out for a clean and decided they have reached the end  :(  so looking for replacements,

Maybe these

http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/EBC-HH-Front-Brake-Pads-For-BMW-2009-K1300-S-FA335HH-/310845972684?hash=item485fdd20cc:g:qywAAOSwNSxVS87i

Anybody tried these?

Sintered are not for our discs, so better scrach that out. All the rest by any brand would do the job, but imho only the originals stop the bike as factory set it.
Brembo makes a special paste pad for the oem pads not availiable in market . yet

Yes Costas is correct OEM are Brembo, I am useing the Brembo pads without the paste on the back but they do sometimes make a noise, Next time I am going back to OEM from dealer and pay the extra.

I fitted EBC sintered pads to my K1200S  because I thought that the cost of BMW pads was ridiculously expensive. I've fitted EBC pads to many cars and not had any problems.

Big mistake. The wear and scoring on the discs appeared to increase considerably. The pads left rusty pad shaped marks on the discs if the bike had been put away wet. When I took the pads out the contact face was totally rusty. There was obviously lots of ferous material in the sinter mix. I'd never seen that before. The brakes did not have the same feel or power as with the original BMW pads fitted.

I bit the bullet and fitted BMW pads along with a set of second hand discs off Ebay.  It's OEM pads for me in the future despite the rip off price.
As I have grown older, I've learned that pleasing everybody is impossible, but pissing everyone off is a piece of cake.

I think you will find that Costas means that the compound of the BMW pads was developed by Brembo for BMW and they are only available from BMW.

Thanks for replys, so what's the difference between the OEM's and these made by Brembo

http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/4-FRONT-BRAKE-PADS-BREMBO-SA-SINTERED-FOR-BMW-K-1300-S-2009-09-07BB26SA-/361206067678?hash=item54198f31de:g:TbAAAOSwmrlU0K53

Is it a different friction material?

Do get confused by the code in the back of the pads its the same , but the code there only reveals dimensions and production codes not the compounds, color is slightly deferent but the compound it totally deferent, the quest went so far as to discover that the oem ones are 18 grams .

Hi Tom
The BMW OEM pads are made by Brembo, and you can get the same compound pads but without the backing on them, if you look at the OEM pads they have a Brembo number on them, or at least the set I got did have,
I will check to see if they now do the same pad with a backing shim on them.
