I went with EBC double H when replacing my fronts, they work just as well as OEM, for me...
Have not had to replace rear yet.

I wonder if anyone on here has tried these ceramic pads from a company called "Sixty Powersports" on eBay.

$60 Shipped for the rear and 2 sets of fronts. I didn't find any reviews from people who had tried them on Vulcan 2000's, but I found some Goldwing riders who had put a few thousand miles on them so far and were very pleased. I will be doing the brake pads on mine over the winter, but haven't decided what to go with yet. These are very tempting...

I replaced my OEM with EBC Sintered Double-H, the braking is very good. They make a funny noise when braking, and I'm sure it's the type of pads as my ZX10r makes he same noise with the same type of brake pads.

So far no complains.

Anyone ever tried replacing the entire setup with something that has a bit more biting power? I am generally underwhelmed with the braking of this bike.

I just replaced my stock OEM pads last night...had just under 60,000 miles on them. Put another set of OEM pads on.
60k on one set of pads?! Wow, I had to replace the rear pad at 12k and I can't say for sure if it was the original OEM as I was not the first owner.

Dont use cheap ones from ebay, i got the full set in and the front ones went on fine but are now squeeky as hell, the back ones could never get them on i sat there on the grage floor scratching my head for a while untill i realized they had made them ass-bakarwds. Recently bought some EBC they have been fantastic compared to the previous ones.

Sadly, most of my riding is commuting nearly 90 miles (roundtrip) a day. I have gotten quite adept at throttle control and engine braking these last few years. The pads I took off still had a little life in them, too.
