Brake Pads

Hey Guys, what are some good type of brake pads to get for a 700 Grizz??

I checked mine the other day and they have around 4mm left on them, but im not sure how thick they are when they are new.

So how long do they usually last?

Cheers

I will strongly suggest race-driven. They are a site sponsor, nearly a quarter of the price for oem, and have put 300 miles on a set and are barely showing wear... Race-driven.com all the way. Not to mention very speedy delivery and great customer service.

Yep race driven, my front lasted 150-200 miles but it was because of all the sandy mud I rode in

You might want to think about making your own from 3/16 flat brass. They last 3 times longer than the BEST sintered pads on the market. Remove the pad from the old plate and tap two bolt/screw holes thru the plate and the brass. Countersink the brass screws on the back of the plate. The brass screws will wear with the brass pad then. Mudders have been making and using these for many years. The best there is.

Thanks for the compliments on our Race-Driven brakes, you can try to make your own the problem is the wear on the brake rotors using flat brass they will wear quite hard on your rotors but it is definately a thought. We sell full sets front and rear on our website for $44.95 delivered anywhere in the U.S.

We have tested against EBC and SBS and ours have lasted just as long or longer at less than half the price.

Yup, brass is for extreme mudders or extreme conditions, I'll try some race-driven when the time comes. I wish you made some great bearings for the yamis.

Well actually its funny you mention this, we are working on wheel bearings , axle bearings and seals as we speak. They probably won't be launched until fall but we will have them along with brake discs we are testing out right now.

Thanks

I also recommend race driven.
Tried several brands and these are the toughest.
