I need to replace front brake pads.

Anyone know which are the best / cheepest and where to get them?

Thanks

Do you want the best or do you want the cheapest? You can't have it both ways!

I like nothing but the OEM pads for the Wings. The aftermarket pads are noisy and hard as a rock (as in won't stop in a country mile hard).

You can buy the pads from Directlines Store. He has the set of three at a discount right now.

I replaced mine with the EBC's and they far out perform the OEM's. No noise or chatter or scoring of the rotors. I suggest going with the EBC's.

I use both the EBC and OEM pads on my bike. The EBC's work as well as if not better than the OEM's for 1/2 the $ and I put them on the front of the bike and on the Hack. For the rear I use the OEM due their extra thickness. The EBC's are the same for all 3 positions but the OEM rear is 50% thicker material so they last much longer which gives me more time between replacement. Note that with the Hack on the bike I go through a lot of pads an if the stopping power was lacking I'd run OEM all the way around.
