Hi All - hoping someone else has used EBC Brake Pads during maintenance. My question is the OEM pads come with a metal plate and foam/plastic pad that you put behind the Brake pad. The EBC brake pads do not have this? I am supposed to take it off the original (used) pads? Or it is simply not required with the EBC Pads. Thanks in advance for the information.

Reuse them if they fit properly on new pad they reduce heat and vibration.

But they don't fit (or didn't for me anyway) so put them on the garage shelf and forget about them.
EBC sintered pads make a big difference to the braking power.

My question----why change from OEM?? They last over 50,000 miles----did it with 2 new SilverWings. Front brake is strong enough for available traction. Ridden in snow/salt good idea to pull and lube pins now and then.

Good question Johh, I think its just my personality to swap stuff out for “better”. I am coming from a PCX that has a LOT more bite than the Silver Wing.

One has to remember---Silverwing was designed over 20 years ago. AS heavy front braker, I found SilverWing front brake ok in over 90,000 miles of them.

Racer83 I just got the pads off Ebay, but make sure you use a reputable dealer else you might end up with cheap fakes.
Why sintered someone will ask. Yes sintered pads will eat the disk a bit quicker, but disks aren't that expensive.
Thing is the SW is a fat old girl, often I ride two up, I live in the hills and I do like to make progress - I want as much braking as I can get.

My just acquired SW came with EBC synthered pads that were almost finished and made a lot of noise.

I replaced them with Galfer synthered pads that are as noisy

I have vever used synthered pads before, so I guess this is normal but I do not like them

Is there that much difference in braking power with OEM pads?

My opinion no----whether ABS or non---one factor in how quick you can stop is tire traction!

Hello Eduardo, and welcome to the forum.

I used EBC sintered pads on my previous Silverwing. Once. I found them to be noticeably noisy as well as eating up the brake rotors. After changing the rotors I went back to using OEM pads. Now with well over 100,000 miles (2 Silverwings); No noises, good braking. Been using OEM pads ever since.

Perhaps EBC has dedicated rotors to match their sintered pads. If so, it would be false economy not to change everything as a set. YMMV

Thanks Tim and John,


I think I will go for OEM pads soon; I cannot stand the noise!

I always use EBC brake pads, fit them as they came out of the packaging nothing behind them, to me they are no noisier than any other pad I have used and I have never had excessive brake disc wear or had to change a brake disc for any reason. Braking is just as good with EBC pads as any other I have used in the past.
