new brake hoses/pads

Post by daveonyx »

I'm soon gonna be replacing my hoses and pads. From what i've read HH is the way to go for pads but is there any real noticable diference between the likes of ferodo and EBC, or are they all much of a likeness?

Same again with the hoses, i'm going to be buying hel hoses (with the use of the 25% discount courtesey of ZX9R.net =D> ) but is there a distinct advantage over using 2 seperate lines rather than 3 with a splitter?

you won't go wrong with any of those pads i don't think

get shut of the splitter if you can , it's just another area for air to trap , plus the less joins in the syatem the better

Nevermind Cliff, I could have seen you mistaking the Scottoiler for a Sex Toy in the past, Just goes to show we can all take something from this experience :lol:

This surely is a place where we can all teach each other things, and learn from each other, and in general better ourselves :D

Crikey, even i can give advice to anyone on a forum........And my advice would be..

DONT EXPECT A SENSIBLE ANSWER FROM ME :lol:
:D

ive been on other bike forums where theres loads of bickering, ppls accounts being deleted, and mainly general chat all over the forum but i must admit this site scares me a little :shock: cos it's moderated very well with speedy replies too (psychobikers).
Oh! and friendly members as well!! :D
there's a nice atmosphere on here (thats if a forum can have one)

and as for the simple answers, that's how i like em ;)

Well we all consider this to be the very BEST 9R site on the 'net - glad to hear some of the newbies think so too, Dave.

And if you think the members are friendly on the forum, get yourself along to a meet and see them face to face - there are some really great people on this here site. :D

We will take that as a massive compliment Dave and say 'Thank you very much!' We know exactly what you mean about other forums, and it 'aint gonna happen here.
