    The last time I used factory Harley pads at $50.00 per caliper. I am trying on the rear a Volar Motorsport pads. Cost me $20.00 for the rear pads. Fit was perfect. These pads are organic. On previous bikes I have used EBC pads with great success.

    I used two different types of EBC pads on my Dyna Glide. they were ok. I put Lyndall Gold pads on my Electra Glide. I like the stopping power, and low(er) dust of them. Eastern Performance has the best price I found for Lyndalls. I got 3 sets for $120, shipped.

    I have used EBC pads on import cars for years at work, they are a high quality fit with low dust and wear good

    I've been running Lyndalls for some time. The OEM pads were super dusty and noisy (chirp...chirp..chirp). I'll not be going back to OEMs. I noticed no difference in stopping power, but then I don't put alot of demand on stopping power, so maybe there is a difference.

    Enjoy,

    Lyndall's are the quietest and least dust of all brands.They stop good too!
    I tried the cheap one's like Volar,they work ok but lots of brake dust.
