EBC HH on my street bike.
Vesrah RJL on my track bike.

Both are good pads. When you go back and forth, the lack of a strong initial bite is noticeable on the HH when compared to the RJL. Beyond that, both are linear and 'not' progressive. Meaning, more pressure on the lever leads to corresponding increase in braking power. Stopping power is good with both pads(at least for a 100hp machine). I've better feel on the RJLs compared to the HH but, it could be due to a race quality brembo master cylinder.

For a brand new track rider who may have a tendency to accidentally grab/stab at the brakes (while rushing the corner or panic etc), HH could, theoretically, be a better choice. It may have a lower chance of locking up the wheel before one has had time to load the tire, from not having a strong initial bite. After 2-5 trackdays, experiment. See what you like best. Everyone is different. The quest is the same - better power, better feel, no fade. Longevity is often sacrificed for performance. (advanced riders may look for progressive increase in braking ability)

Players in the market are
Vesrah : RJL, SRJL, RJLxx etc. (very very popular. RJL is the defacto industry standard)
EBC : HH, EPFA, GPFA, GPFax etc. (HH lasts a very long time)
Carbone Lorraine
and so on / so forth.

Brad makes very good points on maintaining the integrity of the braking system as a whole.
Viffer's input could very well be gospel.  :thumbup:
Happy hunting.

I can dig through stuff I have a ton of nuts and bolts that I have just sorted through over the years. You can also get bags of the things pretty cheap at McMaster Carr

Thanks Jim,
Yes this is my everyday street bike. I will be attending the occasional track day, when my schedule allows. I looked for the different types of brake pads, unfortunately since I have a 2001 ZX7R, I am limited on options. I went with The HH pads. Thank you for your advice.

Here is the lower fairing bolt and washer I'm in most need of. I have something there on the other side that holds, but I like my stuff to match :)

Don't mind my dirty fairing.

I'm also looking for this one. Though it's not too important. Been missing for a long time and doesn't hold anything critical.

Vanson VMK3 one piece road / track suit.

Size 44

Blue and white

Klucky pucks

Full hard armor

Just cleaned/conditioned

Previous owner had a get off in it. There was one tiny hole on the right arm which I had professionally repaired by TrackSideGear.

This would make a great street/track suit, or be a good cheap spare!

Located in Charlotte, but can get it to many SouthEast N2/EvolveGT/PRE events if you can't meet in Charlotte.

$450 (~1800 new)

Since just about everybody runs cameras nowadays I bet someone has some video of you. At the very least let us know at your next event and I bet we can get some for you.

Thanks also for the compliment, we really appreciate it, and I'm glad you had a good time. :thumbup:

Great news to hear he is on the road to recovery!  This was a really bad crash so while his injuries aren't small, it's still a lot better than it looked at the time.
