Brake pads

Going to Change my brake pads on the 1600. Think I used EBC double H last time.
Thinking of trying the EBC Kevlar. Who's tried the kevlar?

Kevlar is a significant downgrade from the HH.
It will slow the bike but require much more effort.

If you dont mind the additional effort and longer stopping distance than I would recommend kevlar pads.

If you are looking for an upgrade over the EBC HH's try their EPFA pads. They are based on the HH but supposedly improved. I just put these all around on mine and I can tell ya they've got some serious stopping power, easily locking both wheels if you're not careful, which is something the stock pads could not do.
