    Brake pads for my track-bike (old YZF)

    I am shopping for a set of front pads for my old '93 Yamaha YZF 750. The choice is not so wide and it pretty much comes down to:
    1. SBS: dual-carbon-racing OR street-excel-sintered-metal
    2. Ferodo: SinterGrip OR Platinum
    3. Galfer: HH Sintered OR Black semi-metallic

    I am inclined towards the SBS racing, just because they are the only labelled as such and I only use this bike at the racetrack, but that still is a little bit of a shot in the dark...

    Any experience with these possible choices? Comments? Suggestions?

    Thanks!

    I have a set of HH+ sintered pads on my 97 YZF 750, I think they were from Braking. They have tons of stoping power but they are kind hard on the rotors.

    If Galfer offers the "Green" compound for your bike that is the way I would go.

    The only pads I have been able to locate so far for the YZF are the ones listed above... namely:
    1. SBS: dual-carbon-racing OR street-excel-sintered-metal
    2. Ferodo: SinterGrip OR Platinum
    3. Galfer: HH Sintered OR Black semi-metallic

    Any suggestions/idea/feedback on which of these?

    Thanks!
