From what I've read here and elsewhere, the stock Honda pads are very good and it seems like most folks go with them for replacement. If you are looking to upgrade though some Galfer Waves and their HH pads can't be beat!

Vesrah RJL or SRJL, you won't be disappointed. If not done already, I highly recommend changing your lines to S/S.

contact royal choppers, I believe he is a dealer for Galfer. Front lines should run about $80-90. Rear about $50

Pads, shop around.

I'd say the rear is a waste. The front would be worth it if you do track days n stuff.

But if you poop money, then I'd do it all.
