OEM Brakes?

Does anyone know the actual part number for the pads? A guy on craigslist is selling New EBC FA141 pads for $15, does anyone know if theyll fit a 919?

if youre in the boston area...

I'm not sure if they will fit, but i was looking into EBC ones for my car, which are great... as far as the 919, i was actually dead set on using the EBC line... yet,, once again, I was hit over the head with knowledge... the nissin brakes that are on it are as good as you can imagine for the stock setup...which honda uses nissin pads as well... from what I have heard,, the only thing that could be gained would perhaps be a slightly longer longevity period....
next to that, the only way to gain anything on these setups would be nothing short of a complete overhaul...

Although i usually like to see proof, and hear from people who have done this and that, as i always stray from the beaten path... if you do use them, please keep us posted on longevity, results,, feel, (although the stock ones are mushy, due to the lines mainly).. i'd be interested to hear...

Everytime I consider changing away from OEM Honda pads, I have to wonder what they'll do to my rotors....

I'll put stainless lines on soon. That's all the changing I'll be doing to the front brake system.

And what benefit will that mod give??? Understand reasons if bike is old and needs them replaced but lets say brand new to Stainless Lines.

The stock brakes on my 9er performed pretty well at Road America - I may try stainless lines, but I was doing just fine clamping down after that 5/8th mile straight.

Stainless lines,, or rather braided stainless reinforced lines, provide a firmer feel by reducing the flexing of the rubber only lines that are on it, as the fluid cannot compress, it will pressure everything in its line, by removing expansion areas, it enhances the feedback, both on the lever, and the brake pistons.

and, well they just look badass, and might protect the lines from a stray flying razor blade... or rock, or armored grasshopper.....
