Brake pads

While I'm doing the oil change, I was thinking of getting the pads done too. So, kevlar vs sintered hh. What are you using and what are the pros/cons.?

I am using these (Ceramic)

2002 2007 Honda 919 CB 900 F Brakes Ceramic Pads CB900F Front Rear | eBay

Previous fronts lasted 35K miles. Rear pads are still going

They have great stopping power and no squeal. Although I have never had any issues with the 919 brakes with OEM pads or otherwise.
