you get what you pay for.

OEM pads is what i usually rock. DP HH pads is what i am running now and they are just as good. but 18 bucks for a full set... no thanks.

A long time ago, I took my kids to a Chinese restaurant.

Not long afterwards, someone found cat carcasses in the dumpster.

When I shared this with my kids, they both replied:

"Who cares, tasted good!"

That being said, I am generally all in for trying most new things.

If you are under a budget crunch and it would be money better spent on something else, or just want to try them, do it and report back.

Just don't come back in a week ranting and raving about how great they are - give them a few thousand miles.

Be nice to see pictures of how they are packaged, what both sides look like, etc.

Most of the cheap crap on the market is cheap crap due to inferior materials, a lack of quality assurance, the use of slave/underpaid labor combined with no environmental or workplace regulations.

In other words, don't buy them one week then start crying about climate change or other issues that are a direct result of people wanting cheap crap.

^^this....a full set for that price? No way! I tried some cheap ones on my GSXR rebuild and the glue actually broke lose between the pad and the metal on all six, some flew out on the road the others fell out when I changed them(they were only on the bike for about 2 months)

If ur looking for decent cheaper pads I've found Volar to be "ok".....they have a decent life span and grip fairly well

But as was said...."ya get what ya pay fer"

Now if there was ever a false economy concept, it is unknown brake pads.
