These pads stop way better than stock. They make more noise than stock because they are sintered metallic, but who cares because they are on a dirt bike. The main thing is that they stop way better and work great in all conditions.
I was not happy with how these pads fit. I had to sand them down to keep the rear brake from dragging while free wheeling. After my first ride they started making noise and still tend to drag. I will go back to stock brakes very soon.
I bought these for my kdx 200. I've rode 2 weekends with these brakes and they work no matter how much mud is caked on them. Installation was easy but only one pin was included. So I had to reuse one of the old pins and I'm kinda upset I didn't get any EBC stickers.
