It's time for new pads on my '83 RS. It looks like the OEM's are available as well as a few aftermarket. Does anyone have any recommendations?

• There are several excellent brands available, but EBC seems to be the leader in the motorcycle market.

• If you have dual front discs, then you'll want to install a matching pair at the same time.

• If you'll research the EBC PN, you can usually find NOS parts on Ebay in the $25 range.

• Also consider stainless steel brake lines and a complete hydraulic system flush.

Thanks Wobbly. I found a good deal on the EBC's on Amazon. The bike already has stainless brake hoses in conjunction with the original hard lines. It appears that some of the braided hose kits are all hose from the M/C to the caliper. I probably won't change them at this point as hydraulically they work fine.
