Front Brake Pad Recommendations & Questions

Post by bfrawley » Wed Jul 11, 2012 11:38 am

What brand of Brake Pads do you guys recommend for an 83 GL1100 Aspencade. I have been checking my normal OEM parts places online (HondaPartsHouse, etc) and they don't seem to have them or be able to get them anymore. I assume a dealer is going to be the same.

1. Does anyone know of a place to get Hondaline brake pads?
2. Has anyone had any good or bad experiences with EBC Brakes?
3. Recommendations on manufactures other than EBC?
3. I know that the left and right front rotors are different sizes, do they use the same pads?

I've used EBC pads for years with no complaints or issues.
