Default Anyone try $30 Ebay brake pads?

Wanted to see if anyone has tried the $30 Ebay brake pad kits from partsangel (sintered) or d1zone (semi-metallic). Clearly the price is right and I don't race my bike.

there are some threads about these brake pads:

2004-2006 Suzuki DL 650 K4 K5 K6 K7 V-Strom Brakes Sintered Pads HH Front+Rear

just search for the term "sixity"

i've never used the ebay pads you are looking at, but to be honest i wouldn't risk my safety to save $70...

the sixity ones have some pretty good reviews on here and are inexpensive, but still i would feel weary about it...

some places just aren't worth going cheap IMO

I use cheaper pads on the rear but only EBC on the front.I tried BikeMaster cheapo's on the front and to my surprise they worked pretty damn good BUT man o man did they screach and howl in the wet!!.
