    Before we leave for the mountains in October, I plan on doing a brake job. Going to flush the systems with new fluid and replace the pads. rebuild calipers if needed. Not having any problems, pads are just getting thin.

    Questions for those in the know:

    What brand of pads do you prefer?
    Anything I should watch out for?

    Thanks!

    EBC also makes a good brake pad for Harleys.

    I have had good luck with the Lyndall Z+ pads. Lots less dust than OEM and last longer.
