  • Brake pads

    Is this a good brake pad for the Road Star? Organic Brake Pads FA123 by EBC
    Are the pads in the front and rear the same part number? Thanks

    Does someone have the part numbers for the best brake pads front and rear for the Road Star? Thanks

    On my 04 rear is FA123 and fronts are FA252. I like them, more dust but does not chew up rotors. I just replace the rear that had HH pads on it and it was chewed up some good.

      99-03 different from 04-14
      EBC HH isn't he best stopping but will wear rotors more than organic

        I went with EBC HH on my 2012 silverado:

        front (need qty 2)

        https://www.amazon.com/gp/aw/d/B0066...?ie=UTF8&psc=1

        Rear (qty 1)
        https://www.amazon.com/gp/aw/d/B0035...?ie=UTF8&psc=1

        I can't really tell a difference in performance from stock.

            Im pretty sure the oem pads are semi metalic. ebc makes a semi metalic 30% sintered called v pads problem is they don't make them for a roadstar so your stuck with fully sintered HH pads or fully organic pads, I can't find anyone that makes a semi metalic for a roadstar so we're stuck buying oem if we want semi metallics, for now anyway

              Unless you do a lot of hard braking, repeatedly, you'll be hard pressed to tell the difference in one brake pad from the other. Matters on sport bikes, not so much on a cruiser.
