I had EBC HH on my previous bike, 2007 Wee, and I liked them. I sold that bike and now I have a 2014 Wee that still has the OEM brake pads. I'm not due for a while but what did you like about the Ferodo's, esp. compared to EBC HH. Could you really tell the difference? Thanks.In the past I was running the EBC HH Sintered but I like the Ferodo's waaay better.
I actually bought 4 pot calipers and the rebuild kit for them right before changing from EBC to Ferodo. At that change I also changed the brake fluid to Super DOT4, so it is possible that the spongy feeling EBC's were a victim of old brake fluid. I have about 10K on the Ferodo's and I am not easy on the levers as I like to do a lot of threshold braking. So far, they feel exactly the same as when I installed them, and the EBC's had about 50% of pad left when changed.I had EBC HH on my previous bike, 2007 Wee, and I liked them.

https://ebcbrakes.com/product/double-h-superbike-pads/You mean 3 different order numbers?
229 HH i 231 HH for the front, and 174HH rear.
I used FA158HH on the front because I have brake calipers from a SV1000.

I've just ordered up some Chinese Volar HH pads for a whopping $30 and they actually get favorable reviews, hell for that price I just have to try them.I used HH rated EBC on the last Blade I had and I really liked them, very strong and didn't need to get up to much temperature to work well. I didn't notice any grabbiness or un-nerving sudden bite even when hard on the front brake and they were never anything but controllable. They did however ruin the discs pretty rapidly but I did put a fair few track days on them.
I'm using GG in the Wee at the moment and I can honestly say that for everyday riding they are fine. Better in the wet than the HH's but not as strong in the dry. Work well from the start of a ride, even in the cold, with good feel and are nicely progressive. When these ones wear through I'll replace with the same. I feel that these work best for me on the road.
I've used the cheaper Chinese stuff from Amazon and Ebay on a bike when I needed to save money and was not impressed. No feel and lacked initial bite. Felt like the brakes needed bleeding. You really do get what you pay for.
They're probably not good enough for racing, but for me they stop just fine. They're also dirt cheap. The Caltric set I'm running was $13.50 for a full set front and back.Better for the rotors, but they don't stop worth a shite.
The Chinese pad set I got was unbranded... Should have told me everything I needed to know! :surprise:Got the Volar HH pads in the mail yesterday, looks almost identical to the EBC HH....... "HONEST" review to come. :smile2:
