Got the pads for the R1 and liked them so much that I got these for the Beemer. They work, and very well. Good feel, I cleaned the rotors and then called the Galfer people to figure out about the break-in period... Just easy on the brakes they said, and clean rotors before installing the new pads.... R1 mostly for track, F800 for commuting and dual sport. Pads wearing just fine, R1 might need a new set soon, no reason to get anything other than Galphers again.
I put these on my 09' R1 for running track days. Stock pads are fine for the street but these allow you to make up time where the stock pads struggle. I had to crank up the damping on my Ohlins forks due to more braking force provided by these Galfers. The bite is more progressive and you can "go deep" when passing under braking but still work great on the street. Remember proper break in on pads.. Enjoy!
These brakes lasted exactly a month on the street, and I do not ride my rear break Do not buy for longevity. Stick to EBC brakes for street use.
I am very happy with this rotors
