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.
