Want to buy Ebc front HH pads for the 9er

Anyone have a set new or like new they want to part with? I have EBC prolite rotors and I'm getting some pad drag when they heat up. I did some research and I need the HH pads. I can get them new for 60. I just wanted to check here first.

I have a set but I fuckin hate them.

As soon as I get some extra cash I'm switching back to OEM. You can just simply have mine if you're willing to wait. Otherwise I'm just throwing them away.

Pad drag is pad drag.
Pad compound is not pad drag.

What issues have you had ?
I've had none, noting I don't care about squeal and noise.

What would be the cause of the pad drag then? I never had an issue until I switched to the ebc rotors. I get a scraping sound when I heat up the brakes. Doesn't do it when cold

Air in the system? Maybe there is a little and it expands as it gets hot.

Running EBC HH pads on OEM rotors. They have an initial bite, get soft, then bite again. They are NOT consistent throughout braking pressure. They also whirr (which I can feel) as they go through brake pressure, the higher the pressure the less whirr there is.

Lastly, they do not feel confidence inspiring like the OEM pads do. More so in traffic. Hate them hate them hate them. LDH wasn't kidding when he said they were shit.

I did have my calipers off recently. Prob didn't get it all out. Could be part of the reason I wrecked recently too. I grabbed a bunch of brake then hammered the throttle coming out of a switchback. Not at the same time . I think they were possibly sticking. It was definitely weird shit. It's the only explanation other than shit happens. I ride my bike pretty hard in the corners. I've had the bike sideways and it always recovered before I messed with it

I had EBC HH pads on my previous bike and they squealed like a pig. Never again.

You have ebc rotors so you should be fine. EBC paired with OEM rotors does not work however.

If you're willing to wait a few weeks, I'll happily give you my current EBC pads. You just pay shipping. They currently have less than 1k on them but will likely have 1500 miles +- by the time I can swap them out, just an fyi.

If your switching compounds/makes, isn't there a proper way of cleaning the rotors from stuff of the old pads? I remember that on a thread and I believe it was LDH saying there was a procedure of cleaning rotors... or was it ND4? I forget
