Just changed my front brake pads with EBC ones tonite and I noticed both pads had a extra metal backing plate. I put them in that way, but have since realized the stock ones that came out only had one of the extra metal backing plates.


The stock ones did not have one on the pad on the piston side of the caliper.

Do I need to go back and remove the extra plate from one of the pads?

Honda says the shim goes only on the "dumb" side. I am not sure it would distort and be of any harm, but for sure no harm in doing it right.

when i first put ebc pads on my bike, i almost threw myself through the windshield! i like ebc pads. some people swear by the oem pads, (and some people will not try a better rear tire either).

EBC's

EBC's Have been on my 2001 since my first brake job. Great pads, make sure you use the sintered one's.
