I ordered a set of brake pads from Hal, the ones from Emgo. Man is the pad material thin on these. I think it is thinner than whats left on the originals I am replacing. Has anyone else used these. Is it just harder stuff that will last as long. Does it scratch the rotors.

That there scraping noise you will hear will be metal coming off the rotor....

OEM pads

I use OEM pads only. Have worked well for me for 180k plus miles on 1800's. Usually 40 k on front, 60 k on rear pads. :D

I went ahead and replaced the left front as they were in real bad shape??? The right was only about 1 mm off of original, and still in good shape. Having a Trike I don't use the Front brakes that much at all. The link system applies the left front also with the rear. I don't know if they had ever been changed or not before I bought it as a Trike. I have put a little over 20 K on it the time that I have had it. The clock is at 43 K now, so I am assuming that they haven't been replaced in the past life. I was able to get a short and cold test ride in Thursday, and of course it is way to soon to tell how they will last but it stops much better than it did that I do know. I wouldn't think that Hal would be offering them if they weren't of at least some quality.
