Race brake pads needed - Track Day 6/2/2015

Search so far has come up short, used DP pads on my BMW S1000RR and Kawi ZX6, and like them a lot, but they don't have them yet, any luck with other brands out there ?

mick,

That thought (Brembo) did cross my mind, just pondering after some hard front stops today, no chatter, etc... with the stock pads, I am wondering if something grippier will do bad things (like chatter) to the front that the abs is not capable of tamping down ? Can anyone who has done a track day on the stock or after market pads report if they are out there ?

Rhody... I run Brembo HH 'fast road' pads on my zx14 (aftermarket Brembo monoblocs) with zero ABS issues... Just awesome stopping... Stock H2 pads are HG apparently so would be worth changing.

Is Mick right on the front calipers being M50's? If so we could find the pads that way???

I think they are M50's,Pretty sure I remember reading that...may even have read it in the manual that came with our Ninjas.Under 'specs'.I would think EBC has some HH sintered for these?These calipers aren't the first to be produced.

Not sure Silver.... I had sent them an e mail and never heard back from them. I will make some calls to try and confirm what model calipers we have and go from there.... I would replace the pads with HH double sintered pads if possible.
