XBR 500 Brake Pads
« on: May 03, 2023, 04:17:56 PM »
Hi All,
Any recommendations on brake pads for the XBR 500 , brands which give good bite ?


Thanks

I'd be interested to hear about this as well.
I usually just buy the cheapest and I must confess they don't seem to bite as well as I'd expect.
Cheers,
Richard.

Hi,
From the other members on facebook, adding EBC or Genuine David Silver replacements plus upgrade the brake line to braided seems to be the popular reply.
