I'm fine with OEM too, on the Sport.

If an aftermarket is needed, then I usually opt for japanese ZCOO pads.

Why not OEM? Why do we fit what we fit?

I've always found OEM to be really good, just expensive. The only reason I tried EBC was reviews, price & availability, everybody stocks them including Triumph dealers, they are half the cost of OEM and imo just as good. The HH fronts give slightly better stopping power but lack some feel of OEM.

I haven't tried the others mentioned here but did try Ferodo pads once, (working there so cost 11/2 sets of front), the dust put me off, had to clean the callipers every 1k miles, binned them & put EBC in.

Some other makes get bad reviews also.

It's time for new front pads for me.  I'm also not an EBC fan for several reasons I won't go into.  Anyone tried the SBS 782 SP?

DP pads (think they were Dunlopad formerly).. First started using them on a Beta 300 Enduro bike and they were head and shoulders the best pads I ever used..
I've already got a set for the TS ready for when mine need replacing... Not stupid money either..

Used  SBS LS compound on the rear of my Tiger Sport and was very impressed, If Id have kept the bike I would have used em on the Front too, but maybe just the HS.
