1983 Gl1100I - Replacement Brake Pads in 2019?

Post by bofler » Wed Sep 04, 2019 5:46 pm



Hi, looking to get some new pads on my '83 Interstate and need recommendations. Not sure what fits and/or is complete garbage. Right now would love the most economical option that is decent. Doesn't need to be the best and longest lasting (though would like to know what that is), as I just want to get some fresh pads on for the moment and will probably do a full caliper rebuild in the not too distant future.

It sounds like a new set of EBC pads is in your near future: https://cyclemax.com/inc/sdetail/gl1000 ... pads/48650

WOW great thread. Just what I need.

I also have an 83 Interstate (L model) with terrible brakes and now I am replacing everything. The problem is I can't seem to find correct part code for EBC discs. All I am getting are euro models A/B/C/D. So are the brakes the same as other models i.e. European models or is there some difference??
