I have not yet received these however thought I'd mention it here as it's the most reasonable price I've seen for a set of all four front pads for the pre-'07 400s--the seller has 9 sets left (in this offering) as of this writing.

Ordered them last night they shipped today, I will report back on what I see when they come in...

I got these in yesterday's post. They appear to be as good as any, installed them this morning and took a 25 mile ride in-town and down A1A along the beach--they perform as well as ant as well...

I was just searching for pads and to get all 4 front pads for under $20 is a deal!
That has been my biggest issue with linked brakes....needing 4 pads for the front.
Thankfully they usually don't wear out that fast either.
At 18,000 smiles It is belt, brake, filters, plug, fluid change and check the rollers and tappets time for me. :thumbup:

I got some and after seated in they seem to perform very nicely.
Time will be the real test though.

I've got 600+ miles on them now and all is well, they are quieter and better performing than what I replaced, which appear to have been stock replacements (the original owner had a Suzuki shop do all the maintenance)...

Hey everyone! i didn't want to start a new thread but If you search on ebay there is a guy selling multiple sets of EBC brand high performance front brake pads for only $27 bucks! and that is for all four pads! If you look in the picture in the posting you can see that they come from the manufacturer in packs of two pads per pack and the sticker on the pack says $35 per pack! so the normal price for these pads is like $70 bucks for all four! i even checked a few other places online and right around $70 is the going rate for these pads! so this is an awesome deal, if anyone isn't familiar with the EBC brand..well your missing out!...they make the best performance pads you can get and they last forever! I have been running them for years in all my cars and bikes and they are the best.. and always make a notable difference in breaking power and they wear much slower when I've used them. I just bought a set for my burgman and ill report back after i try them!

I just ordered a set (two packs of EBC for $27 ($20 + $7 Shipping) So we'll see what happens when they come in.

Also ordered rear pads (again EBC) for $10.99 (+$1.99 Shipping).

Complete set for under $40, color me happy.

I'll update once I've got them on.

I put EBC Sintered HH pads on my 400 and they have fantastic stopping power compared to what I took off. They are quiet too which is a plus. Definitely worth what I paid for them

Hey (Fatjock), I'm glad to hear you were able to snag a set! I wonder how the seller is able to offer such a low price for these high quality EBC pads! I mean these are basically the best pads you can buy and they are now almost the cheapest as well if you are lucky enough to get a set from that guy before he runs out...because every other online source will cost you $35 a pair so that's like $70 bucks normally for all four! The only thing I can think of is that he must have got a bulk supply of them somewhere for cheap..

I got in ten minutes before the end of the auction with no bids so far, and got them for the starting bid........time will tell if they are genuine :wink:

We always worry about our breaks getting to hot, let's just hope these aren't to hot to start with. Not that you would likely get in any trouble, just I would hate to see a thief get away scot free. Let's hope he just got a bulk supply of them somewhere cheap like 13bturbofc suggested.

I got my pads and they are defiantly genuine EBC pads, Ive been buying EBC brand for years from many different suppliers and they have changed in looks,feel and design over the years, but the ebc pads currently all look the same if your dealing with the same pad material.. The packaging was also genuine EBC packaging, which the smaller pads come in a air tight "blister pack's" .. the pad backings are nicely powdercoated black and the EBC name and part number is also stenciled in white onto the black powdercoating..I researched the seller a bit and he sells tons of EBC pads and other related items for all kinds of different vehicles so its very unlikely these are stolen either guys so i would not worry about that..It looks like he probably runs a dealership and gets these parts dirt cheap as it is and i know lots of times dealerships also will buy up another dealerships inventory when they go out of business.. And when that happens they get that stuff for penny's on the dollar!

can i get a status report for these pads?

i am looking to purchase some new pads and wanted to see how they have performed.. its been over 6 months since the thread was started.. curious to find out how they are holding up..

also.. is it as easy as it seems to install front brake pads... it looks (according to the manual) like it should only take about 10 minutes to install the new pads... am i missing something???

I have put 6k miles on my scoot since installing them--all is well, they have easily another 12k in them...

Installation is easy, just remove the cross pin and pull out the clamping spring and pads. Push the cylinders back into the caliper, insert new pads, spring and pin--done...

good to know as I also bought from this vendor a full set front and back for my 2008 - haven't installed yet as I don't need them - but good to know, they did send me the wrong rear first off - they sent the pre 2007 type - but they sent me the right ones with no exchange needed - good seller
