Volar Brake Pads

http://www.volarmotorsport.com/stree...rake-pads.html

Anyone ever heard of these? Used these??

I looked for reviews but what I saw was inconclusive so far. If you have used these, please post up your thoughts.

I may buy a set and use them next season....for street riding.

Brake pads are one of those things "I" would never go cheap or buy unknown brands.

Just buy a set of Vesrah RJL's and call it a day!

I have already heard and read that several times. I just want to know if anyone has used them before.

What you stated is exactly what I have read from several forums.

I pulled the trigger last night....will keep you posted on how they perform. My daily commute riding will most likely never really push these pad's so I am not sure I will be a good judge of their effectiveness.

At that low price . I would not put my life on the line , seems something has to be wrong with them , good luck ---- when my life is on the line i only use Vesrah pads - The RJL Brake Pad compound is the perfect choice for Aggressive Street Riders, Track Day Riding and Novice Racers.
A harder backing plate than OEM brake pads for more even pressure across the pad.
More initial "bite" giving the brakes a more aggressive feel.
Pad compound is resistant to fade related to heat buildup.
No Bedding in of the pad is required before usage.

Hi Anthony....you never know. Could be that other OEM's are over charging you for the same thing. As I said, I am going to give them a try...if I don't like the feel I can always take them off, but they could be a good set at a good price.

I got these awhile ago, they do the job for street riding rain or shine. Don't know about track because I haven't gone to one yet, but they may perform just the same as the higher end models or a tad lower. just a tad lower. I've been using them for about 6months in rain or shine. Only issue i had was when it get really cold, but that was just recently when i had to be at work at zero dark thirty. other than that, shoot $30Bucks an entire set, they work better than the OEM spec EBC's that were installed on my bike back when i got it last year. here's a Coupon code if your interested got this in with the product. Code: D2M2008, its good for 15% off restrictions apply, give it a try if you want. No complaints here. Sry i didn't see this earlier

2001 rc51 upgraded

1999 vtr 1000 "superhawk" sold

2006 650R Ninja sold
