I searched the forum - Pm'd Wonway and Gilly. Not many people have replaced their brake pads ....

The Links I found were dead- I will call a few places tomorrow , just wondered if anyone had done it recently..?

As an aside - I got 4200 miles out of the oems... How are they stacking up for others...?

I will not go stock- Haven't decided yet- Lots of things have changed in the last 16 months... I will post up in the next 48 hrs.. I NEED 'em !!! ( but what I get will be a combo street/ track compound that will prob. only last ..?) But better than OEM-

I use the rear alot to set me up for corners, i've covered 43,000 km's and are on my 4th set of rear pads (including originals), usually run organic pads but this time went for EBC sintered pads (@ work so don't have #'s) & will be swapping these out for organics again as have lost the rear brake twice by overheating,once was over a rather large hill that take 7min up & 9min down (takes my mate 45mins in his 4x4) lots of posted 25-35km/hr corners. The front are still only half worn ! So the rears are last about 12,000km's.

Thanks Darren, I rarely use the rear brake ... i might just a touch here and there... But most of the time if I'm on the Brembos... the rear might be a few mils from contact, or unloaded.
Thanks man !

Chris has a chart on the cycleworks site, which is how I came to choose those pads. I do also believe that if you are tracking a bike and the pads reach half life, they transfer more heat to the rotors, so adding fresh pads will increase the lifespan of your rotors.... Imho

FatCobra,

Call your local dealer and see if the pads on the 1198 are the same on the F1098S. The reason I say that is because on my SP, the brakes bite much, much harder at all speeds, than the stock F1098S ones do. I thought they'd be the same brake system (et al) but they most certainly do not bite as such.

That being said, if you want more bite, seek out whatever pads come on the 1198SP. Boy do they bite, and bite hard!!!!! No kiddin!

Good luck! btw, the other advice herein is pretty solid too. I've used those pads on different bikes myself. They work well too.

PS, the brakes on the 1198 are also far more linear than that ones on the SF.

Just to clarify, the EBC FA266 are the ones that've been fine, it's the Premier 253's that are causing me problems.

The performance was great- I just figured since I had to replace them I'd go with something with a bit more longevity.
The F1098 Brembos are two piston - I think the 1198 uses a 4 piston caliper.

And that would actually explain it. Carry on Fatcobra! Carry on!!!!! And do let is know what you end up going with.

Ps. Might want to try rubbing some steel wool on the rotars before installing the pads. Should help the pads get better surface area when embedding themselves in. Work the pads in hard once you install them but be sure to finally pump the lever once you have everything put back together.

One of the local racers several years ago forgot to pump the lever after he reinstalled the front wheel and when he went to take his first pull on the brakes from the straight-away, he went for a little flying lesson that resulted in a broken arm, and lots of ridiculing from the pits.
