Cheap Brake Pads..

Recommended Posts

Sure don't last very long. Got a set of cheapy rear brake pads off Ebay, lasted about 5 or 6 rides. Were good at the end of ride before last, looked tonight when I got home, and the were completely gone. Stuck another set of cheapies on there that I had laying here, will keep a close eye on them though.

Then I guess it'll be back to EBC HHs again. They're kinda light switchy, but last a full season.

The Tusk cheapies I bought from RMATV seem to be holding up/working well.

Ive been riding on the $9 sintered jobs from RM with no problems. Im a clutch and brake abuser. Organic pads only last 1-2 rides.

I'll check those out. Last set of EBC HHs I got were around $36.

Edit: Ordered a set of the $9.95 Sintered rears, and while I was there, ordered a set of Tusk carbon front pads for $13.95.

A heads up though.. those Sintered rear pads are on closeout, may not be here for long, grab 'em while you can.:smirk:

I just purchased some cheap pads of ebay,said they had kevlar in them,can't remember the name but the were like $17 front and back.Had 3 rides so far and they haven't even worn to the rotor yet,my rotor has a concave center and the pads were only touching the outer edge.

I have about 6 solid rides on these $9 jobs. Front and rear are the same. I think I saw the same ones on Ebay, same price, $9 and change.

Those look like the ones I just put on, and were the $9 ones from Ebay. The ones that burnt up so fast had a black colored metal backing and came as a combo deal with a rotor I got for my other wheel.

Been muddy as all get out since I put the others on, so that may have accelerated the wear too.

      I have a problem with my stage 2 exhaust cam on my rmz whenever I kick it over the exhaust cam likes to stop at the lift unless I put it at tdc or kick it really slow it runs fine when it starts and I have played around with the shims right now all the valves are shimed and I have checked the timing everything’s to spec it just gets stuck at the exhuast I’m pretty sure it’s something to do with too much compression I probally will end upbuying stock cams but wanted to see if anyone knows how to fix this first

      I recently acquired a 1990 KDX200. The bike runs reasonably well for it's age. The first ride over 30 min the gearbox oil started overflowing into the airbox (overflow hose is routed to airbox). The oil that overflowed and the oil in the gearbox are an odd shade of dark forest green. The oil appeared to be overfilled slightly which explains the overflow. What I don't understand is the weird dark blueish greenish gray color of the oil.  I believe the PO used motul 10w40 ester gearbox oil because he gave me a half used gallon. I use Motul 710 2t oil which is blue, and run green coolant in the radiator. I drained the gearbox oil and there was a nice little clump of dark gray metalic paste on the magnetic drain plug, which should explain the gray hue. What I do not understand is the greenish blue hue. Anyone know what in the heck is going on with this old horse?
      The pic shows a sample of my drained oil. When held up to the light it turns more of a green color. Oil still feels slick as can be.

      will a clutch basket from a 98kx250 fit a 96kx250? How about the carb also?

      I have a new cylinder that i bought to rebuild my 1993 kawasaki kx250 with, because the old cylinder was destroyed. The guy said the cylinder is overbored a little but never gave us numbers. The new one i bought came with a piston thats been used and i would like to replace. I believe the piston that came with the cylinder is the correct size, but it very well could be off and i have no way of knowing. So how do i properly measure the cylinder bore, and how do i use this measurement to find what size piston I need to get?
       
      thanks,
