Which Ferodo and which EBC pads are you tossing up between?

SBS Racing Sinter pads for 899

SBS Motorcycle Brake Pads
Thinking of getting these pads before my bike's first track day as the front brakes feel mushy. Anyone here use these yet? Anyone know of a retailer in the US?

I'm testing this pad (Code 05) on my 899... I can say that are better than the original, as soon as I can I will try this pad on circuit just to see the difference in worste condition

I just installed Ferodo's HH pad and can report after the first 200 miles that the initial and progressive bite from the Ferodo pads are no better than OEM (which is an HH Brembo pad). I actually feel the Brembo's have slightly more aggressive bite which is what I prefer.

I have the Ferodo SinterGrip pads and just got out for the first time this season .
They do feel better but not a ton.I am more annoyed by the play in the lever, maybe a bleed will help that

I just swapped the levers over to a set of Titax reach adjustable levers. It seems that the Titax levers make the brakes feel much better. I think they improve the angle relationship between the handle, fulcrum and the pin that pushes the piston so that you get closer to a more linear rate of applied braking force. I am still keen to try some other pads but this change has already made a very satisfying improvement.

As standard the 899 lever has much more travel than the lever on my 900SS (which has been retro fitted with a 848 Brembo radial master cylinder of a similar design to the 899s).

For whatever reason the brake lever on the 899 has quite a lot of travel on the 899 and this large movement causes problems with the lever angles.

As the lever moves towards a 90 degree angle between the lever pivot point (fulcrum) and the point where the lever pushes the pin you get a rising rate and conversely as the lever moves further beyond the 90 degree angle between the lever pivot point (fulcrum) and the point where the lever pushes the pin you get a falling rate.

I think with the Panigale 899 levers set up, as you pull on the lever harder you get a falling rate of applied pressure to the master cylinder piston.. so for each pound of extra pressure you apply to the lever you successively get less pressure on this piston.

With the Titax levers (and probably some other reach adjustable levers) you get a slightly rising rate ... so for each pound of extra pressure you apply to the lever you successively get the same or slightly more pressure on the master cylinder piston.

Vested interest disclaimer: The company I work for imports and distributes Titax levers in NZ.
