I came the exact same realization about a month ago. NOTHING compares to the oem chain and brake pads. How much were the oem pads frpom the dealer? I order mine thru PartShark.com...they seem to have the bestest deal on OEM parts for any Japanese bikes.. Have fun andb take it easy on those stoppies.
PS>..Many saty that the wee cant do stoppies and WE know thats not true
