    Re: Brake pads

    No, SC would be more track focused, from what I can gather from feedback the OEM is better than the SA.

    Thanks for your input. I need good pads for the street, not for the track.
    I heard the opposite opinion that SA better than OEM.
    About the SC I agree with you.

    The S33s he refers to are probably not ideal for even fast road.....possibly too many opportunities to lose optimum working temperature... that said.. 22 quid a set for my Calipers... could be a find or could be a sphincter shrinker....

    The S33s were great on the road as well as the track, the GP5s are more track focused but I haven't tried them on the road . The S33s just felt great straight out of the box worked great from cold and hot. I do alot of trackdays and find the s33 brilliant. The wear rate is excellent also. I use them in my Haybusa road bike too and can't fault them.

    Re: Brake pads

    Hi guys

    Just to refresh this thread.

    I've got my first trackday at Snetterton at the end of the month and want to change the pads as they're getting quite low. I mainly ride fast road but hope to get 4/5 trackdays in aswell this year.

    Looking at the suggestions above and whats available I've comedown to:

    Goldfren S33
    Goldfren GP5
    SBS 870HS (oe replacement compound)
    SBS 870RS (suitable for combined road and track bike)

    I know a couple of you had replaced with the Goldfren GP5, so wondered how you'd got on with them over the last couple of months?

    Welcome any other feedback.

    Many thanks

    Re: Brake pads

    I'm more than happy with the Goldfren GP5s I fitted in February...every bit as good as the last couple of SBS sintereds and a set of OE I've gone through. Fast road only for me..no track.

    I paid 32 quid for an axle set.. (HP4) so excellent value for money. No hesitation in buying again.

    Thumbs up from me...

    Glad you finally built up the courage to test them 😂. I preferred the s33 compound over the gp5 and at 22 an axle set from M&P for my gen one as opposed to 49.99 for the gp5 race compound even better. Goes to show price snobbery doesn't always pay. I preferred the s33 on track never tried the gp5 on the road. Currently using one of my gen 1s as a road bike and the s33s are brilliant on the road too
