Brake pad info

Hi all,
Just after your views on best brake pads for a 06 k1200s (front and rear). Both of mine are wearing a bit thin now and will need to be replaced soon. Thanks .

Stock is pretty good.

Other than that, I've had good results using vesrah on my other bike. I would definitely try a set for the k12.

I've used carbon lorraine in the past. Fine as well.


I've heard that EBC are rather abrasive. I tend to stay away from that brand...

'06 K1200R- in pieces
'73 Honda CB500F- slow but fun.
'77 Yamaha XS 750 triple- kinda

At the present I have Carbonne Lorraine front and EBC rear.

+1 For Carbonne Lorraine.


I wouldn't use EBC again but not because of abrasive issues, but rather because after every ride with the EBC pads the rear wheel is covered in black dust. ( I've silver wheels)


Stock pads although expensive are good and If you have warranty are worth having as somebody recently found out, his caliper pistons had seized and the dealer refused warranty pay out as pads were not genuine.
