Good morning V2Kers. i recently had my front tire off. I noticed that my brakes are over half worn. Has anyone used other than the OEM brakes that Kawasaki uses. I was searching Ebay for a tire for a friends Goldwing ( he has no computer ) and found Kevlar brakes, Ceramic brakes, and the original brakes. Any help or personal experience appreciated.

brakes

I.m using the kevlar on mine now. They are a lot easier on my polished rotors. This is my third year on them now with no problems. I did notice you need a slight more brake pressure to stop, but no wear so far

Thanks Gillyiowa, the Kevlars that I saw were a little cheaper than the winters OE replacements. In this economy a penny saved is a penny earned, but I wouldn't sacrifice safety for a monetary savings.

Gilly, I'm going to replace my rotors and pads this spring, where did you get the kevlar brakes, does anyone else have suggestions on hi-end F&B rotors and pads for the V2K
