Front and Rear pads
« on: 04 February, 2018, 08:32:39 PM »
On checking fleabay I bought 2 EBC  brake pads, FA388 for my late 2010 Biffer Mk 1.
Have decided to change all brake pads but don't know if the front and rear are different.
Fleabay adverts sometimes advertise as front brake pads and sometimes rear.  Any difference.
Do the same pads fit front and rear and have I bought the right set??
Want to have all the parts as for me this is a big job, but not to those who know what they are doing.

by the way FA388 is organic and not recommended. It has not sufficient braking power for heavy biffer. I strongly suggest not to put in. You need HH version which is Sintered.
Also the one you bought is for NONE ABS rear only.

I buy S33 model 257 from Golfren for both front and rear ABS. Avoid all below S33 like S3 or AD.

New pads now fitted.
What's the best method to break them in.
Rode less than half a mile and they really don t work well so does anyone have a particular method of breaking
in as I haven t done this before and MOT  test on Thursday.
