        From the previous pads these pads grip far better. Not sure if different material but there is a substantial difference from previous pads. Hopefully they will last as long. Usually have been getting about 15,000 miles.

        I had a Honda Shadow VT1100C that I road like a street bike. I rode it hard in the hills, we have lots of twisties here. The bike was never designed for that so I acknowledge that I was the main cause, but the pads did seem to wear fairly quick on the VT1100. There's not a lot of meat on these pads.

          Comments about GALFER Semi Metallic Brake Pads:

          I buy these for my Vulcan 900 custom. I ride 150 miles a day (work and back) 5 days a week so I go through a lot of brake pads and oil changes.

          My local motorcycle dealers do not stock OEM pads, they are special order. They do stock EBC brand which cost about the same as these Galfer pads.
          I DON'T KNOW WHY but these last longer than the EBC pads. Must be something in the formula of the compounds but regardless I have switched and am getting about 2000 miles more per set. Also I can buy 3 sets of these for every one set of OEM's so it's cheaper as well.

          I have not experienced any fading or other issues with the pads so I'm happy with the product.

            Comments about GALFER Semi Metallic Brake Pads:

            These fit and installed easily. The other pads I had were too thick to fit on the front of my ST.
            Pads are kind of thin, so I am not sure of how much wear I can get out of them.

                  • Street

                  Comments about GALFER Semi Metallic Brake Pads:

                  I used these pads in place of the OEMs. They showed an increase in stopping power and inital bite over the OEMs! They provide great feed back in the lever and have gotten me out of trouble a couple times. Its not a extreme bite which is a great replacement for the street. They give you better performance at a great price! I wish they lasted a lot longer but i understand with a slightly softer compound will have that effect. One set of pads lasted about a year but i put on about 10,000 miles in that year. They do dust a bit but nothing a little wash or wipe can't fix. Over all a great product for the street. I can't recommend it for the track as I have not track rode with them. As a OEM replacement for the street A+++
