Stock Suzuki pads or black organic pads from EBC or Galfer. I think your FA174 is the right pad.
Do the pads drag? A problem with that caliper? Or do you use way too much rear brake and no where near enough front brake to stop? Or do you drag the rear brake without knowing it due to foot pressure on the pedal? (Try readjusting the pedal position.) While the old rule of 70% percent of your stopping power is on the front is highly inaccurate, it does illustrate the point.
"Older people who are reasonable, good-tempered, and gracious will bear aging well. Those who are mean-spirited and irritable will be unhappy at every period of their lives.
"Let each of use properly whatever strengths he has and strive to use them well. If he does this, he will never find himself lacking."
