View Full Version : Race Pad Lifespan?

08-12-2009, 12:30 AM
Anyone with experience with the Aprilia race pads chime in on how long these last?

I have maybe 1500 kms on a set of these pads and they are basically gone. They work fantastic but don't seem to last all that long IMO.

Bought right, depends how hard you are them though.
They wear fast either way.

Try out EBC HH pads, they are great and last a bit longer.

They fade very quickly. 3-4 track weekends... even less. Or maybe on the street.. doing a lot of activity like your avatar suggests... they will also go quickly.

I have maybe 5 or 6 track nights and tons of stoppies on them. They are great while they last but $100 for a set of pads that only last ca 1500 kms is a bit steep IMO.

Top line race pads for inline 4 racebikes cost about half that and last longer.

I tried to order the EBC pads but when they came they were the wrong thing. We even double checked the number. Maybe someone at the factory screwed up but they were definately the wrong pad.

What's the EBC HH part number for the SXV?
