Working as expected
It was time to replace the front pads on my 2011 DL650 and I didn't want to break the bank. I normally would use Sintered pads but wanted to experiment with something different so bought these. Installation was simple and the replacements fit like a glove (as expected) reusing the stock shims. For normal riding I can't tell any difference. Stops well and predictably with low effort and no noise. Since I'm closer to receiving Social Security than graduating College I really never push the bike to either its or my limits so can't comment on any type of racing performance. I also can't comment on longevity as I've only had the pads on for a couple hundred miles as I type this. So far I'm really satisfied especially the "bang for the buck."
