Re: 147 Brake Pad Squeal - For Info
Once tried EBC pads on a m/cycle when I was very young. Concluded in a very short distance that they were rubbish or at best only suitable for a racetrack. Due to availability/stupidity/price I did the same trick again later. Same conclusion. That's all a long time ago and perhaps had no relevance now but left me slightly reticent about 'funny' makes of pad. Much prefer OEM or good 'ol names these days.
Often worth remembering that a pad is not a pad just because it fits a certain caliper. The same caliper shapes crop up on all sorts of vehicles with different needs, so you do find hard or soft pad materials on the same basic pad backing. After market suppliers might try to make a 'one pad fits all' for economy.
Doesn't say that in the manual
