I was in need of rear pads and unsure, so I put stockers on I am happy with them. Bought the bike with 16K mi on the clock. Rear tire had been replaced and the front tire needed to be. Rear pads were paper thin. Perhaps the previous owner used the rears more.
When I need front pads I will go with the OEMs as well.
I have EBC rotors and HH pads on my Kaw and I don't like the feel. Never have liked the feel of the rotors (I think they suck). The HH pads felt good against the stock rotors, If I had to do it again I would pay the extra and put OEM rotors on. I do agree that the HH pads are hard on rotors, but I had a set of Kevlars on it and they didn't stop nearly as well. Recently I rebuilt the master cylinder and put SS lines on and I am still bleeding the system and trying to get the feel back.
I think (my) RS stops like (words escape me) very (expletive deleted) well. I'm not going to tinker with the combination until I think I can improve on it. Currently, I don't feel that's reasonably possible.
