whatever i choose its always from a localish dealer - I worry Ebay have too many inferior copies and brake pads are not something that should be a copy

On OE discs, sintered without a doubt.

Save up and Mr H's will do you well.

Sorry to show my ignorance but what are 'sintered' brake pads?  Presumably when the time comes I can buy OEM Honda ones and all will be fine?  Likewise I wouldn't want to compromise safety by buying cheap copies of brake pads or calipers, discs, etc...

"Organic brake pads, sometimes called nonasbestos organic brake pads, are made from natural materials liked glass and rubber, as well as resins that can withstand high heat. In fact, the high heat helps to bind the brake pad materials together. Kevlar is also an important component in many organic brake pads."

You're not wrong there! I bought some cheapish 'genuine' EBC pads from Fleabay but when they arrived they were obviously cheap copies: fuzzy printing, packaging wrong, no writing on the pads themselves etc. Sent 'em back and bought some genuine 'genuine' ones from a local bike dealer instead.  :028:
