Are you looking for replacement brake pads?

Yes WingAdmin and I have heard of people getting new pads and thickness of the pads were under size and the piston were more than half the why out in order for the brakes to make contact, so I wondering if there was a required size before order a set.

I've used Honda (OEM) and EBC. Both are good choices.

Cosmo
The EBC are softer, make more mess (brake dust) and wear out faster than the Honda OEM. Both work well, but I go with the Honda OEM pads, simply because I have better things to do than change brake pads and clean wheels. :)

I don't, I usually just drive a few miles down the road to Cyclemax and pick them up there. :) They keep them in stock: http://www.cyclemax.com
