I know this thread is a couple weeks old now, but my question relates to a few posts here....
As I shopped for pads myself today, I browsed relevant threads here, and looked around online. A few posts here mention "organic" pads, and "kevlar" pads. There's also a post or two suggests using the organic rather than kevlar, and the reasoning behind it.
Anyway, when I looked up pads at Ron Ayers, (they only sell EBC btw, other than the Kawi Factory stuff; whatever those are), the heading over the pads charts/pricing says this:
The world's #1 selling organic disc brake pads .Made with DuPont Kevlar. Provide excellent stopping power without noise and rotor galling, even on polished rotors. Fingertip control and strong, predictable brake response
Organic pads made with kevlar? And these pads list that FA85 part number for our bikes.
So in shopping for pads, is it recommended to try and find some other kind of organic pads? I don't understand the contradiction here.
Are there pads made of nothing but kevlar?
And going by what I've read here, using these pads on the front would be fine, as long as the same type of shoe is used in the back right?
Could somebody in the "know" shed some light for me please?
