Not sure what pads the vx had got fitted but I thought the brakes were a bit crap so I have been looking at options, decided to go for EBC Vee-Pads front and rear - tag lines are:


  • Made with new technology semi sintered processing for longer life (similar to sintered)
  • Superb stopping power and an ideal upgrade for heavy touring bikes and earlier classic bikes
  • Earlier classic bikes lacked stopping power being fitted with out-dated technology low friction rated materials. Simply changing to the new Vee-Pads™ is like adding a brake booster on these classics, much better braking and lifetime



Have just ordered them from SportsBikeShop, £35.65 for both sets (front & rear) delivered.

I will report back when I have fitted them, but I will also be changing the fluid as well at the same time. She has braded hoses already fitted which is a bonus.

Good pads EBC  Just ordered new brake pads. 3498837457 I'm confident you'll give a good review, Sportsbikeshop is a good web retailer too, they give a 1st class service and you can track your delivery to within 15 mins of delivery so you're not waiting around all day.

Sportsbikeshop is just up the road from me in Boston. Most of my gear has come from them. Great bunch of people, they have a shop onsite so that you can try stuff on which is fantastic, I normally see James. I cannot rate them highly enough.

Not getting on to well, Sportsbikeshop's suppliers have let them down so no brake pads yet. Looks like the 'Vee'  pads are a little hard to get hold off. So what about the HH rated ones, anyone got any experience with them?, I am not fussed about how long they last, I just want maximum stopping power. My other bike has twin front disc's and stops so much better even if it is 9 years older??
So do I get the HH ones or go for another brand?

Hi Andrew, I fitted the HH ones to my C800 earlier in the year and they're much better than stock.

Fitted the pads this morning, I also changed the fluid and gave everything a good clean. Boy what a difference Just ordered new brake pads. 3498837457

If you need pads, I would recommend you get EBC Double H's.


Any excuse to go for a ride and as I needed to bed the pads in, I had a ride to Kings Lynn and had a chat and a cuppa and then came home again, lovely ride out.
