Just ordered a set from WoundedDuc. What pads do you guys recommend for hard street use and occasional track days?

Re: What brake pads to use with Brake Tech Iron Rotors? (Ducaholic)

http://www.braketech.com/tech/sintered.html


CAN I USE ANY BRAKE PAD MATERIAL ON CAST IRON?
Generally speaking, most organic (semi-metallic) brake pads are good for use on iron rotors. If in doubt, contact the manufacturer for details regarding specific use for this application. Ferodo Platinum, CP911, CP901, 4004F, 3485F, 3410F and I/D450 are all good for this. Although the various sintered metal pads will perform quite well, they generally operate at substantially higher interface temperatures (by as much as 150 degrees [F] at peak). The result is usually shortened life span of the rotor and as such, sintered metal pads are universally not recommended unless specifically denoted otherwise.



Gray Iron rotors: Sintered metal pads ARE NOT RECOMMENDED for use under any conditions.


Based on extensive dyno testing, results show it is acceptable to run Ferodo SinterGrip ST pads on BrakeTech Ductile Iron rotors (dual disc application only; Buell riders should use either Platinum or CP911 organic pads).

I'm using Platinums on the front, and just switched to Sintergrips on the back, BT iron all 3 blades on an S4.

Works good for me on the street, never done a track day.

Sintergrip rear seems to have more bite than the Platinum did. Haven't had anything other than the Platinums on the front.

I use Ferodo Platinums with Braketech ductile iron rotors and the combo is great. This combo is on my track bike

Re: (Ian900)

Both Ferodo CP911* and Galfer Greens work well with cast iron rotors. The Galfers seem to have more initial bite when cool if you want that.

i use the Ferodo Platinums with a rear full floating Braketech ductile iron rotor and seems to work well.
