As far as the pads go, oem as above. The EBC's I tried on my KLR left me frustrated with noise.

arctic954 We don't have to worry too much about such issues in the US....with brake lines at least.

Now aftermarket exhaust is becoming a different story.

Should have read your post before, you beat me to it.

In case of a very serious accident, all your gear is inspected (at least thats what happens here), having a non-dot equipment might give you trouble. Just like not having winter tyres in winter time, no matter how the accident happens you lose the insurance/etc fight for not having proper gear.

LDH I understand that as well, but when I read a "be careful" warning I have to assume it is more than just a legality.

arctic954 Can't go wrong with just about any line.....I've used them all....Goodridge, Speigler, Galfer. I can say the Speiglers were my favorite....good instructions, customized colors, and the Bajos swivel for a perfect fit.

Currently have clear Galfers on the 9er.

Very many bad comments about EBC - opinions vary. I had a set of HH's on the 9er - initial bite was brutal and annoying.

Everyone does however agree that the OEM's work well.

EBC Break Pads and Goodrich Break Lines?

I been thinking about a set of EBC break pads and Goodrich Steel Braided Break Lines.
Has any one had any experience, thoughts, or suggestions on these?
