Brake pads

Looking for brake pads for my 2015 DL650 ABS and I'm having a hard time finding them for my specific bike. I can find them for a DL1000 so here's the question, do they use the same brake pads.

If it's not broken, make it better
My take on oil: Name brand, wet clutch compatible.....BAM good to go.

Same calipers are also used on the 2nd gen SV650, plenty of options available. EBC numbers should be 229 and 231. OE pads are good too, about $40 per set from most online vendors. 59102- 33870 right side and 59302-33850 left side. 69100-06830 rear.

Thumbs up

You won't regret HH's. Got them all around on mine. Around $120 bucks though, not cheap.

They have them, we need them.

I just replaced my tires and that's a tough one also considering how long they last compared to car tires.

Happiness is, a good set of brake pads on the motorcycle. I always add EBC HH pads to my motorcycles, replacing the crap general purpose OEM pads. Every time I change them out and go for the first ride I always wonder why these aren't OEM pads instead of the ones they seem to like to use, they're that good. I shouldn't have waited 13,800 miles to change them on the Strom.

There's a post by Greywolf a while back ... seems like the consensus was that EBC FA229HH / EBC FA231HH on the front and EBC FA174 (Organic) on the rear provided the best combo of braking force on the front and control on the rear.
