    You EBC users:
    HH compound on the front, same in rear or organic rear?
    $3-4 price difference so whatever works best.

    On my Sport its got to be HH rear because otherwise it feels wooden and totally inadequate. I did not feel this was neccessary for the front. FWIW I used organic (OE) on the front and EBC HH at the rear for the first 30k miles. Then disappointingly at 30k I measured my disks and BOTH ends were out of spec and needed changing. So now I have EBC disks and HH pads at both ends.
    Nothing is foolproof to a sufficiently talented fool.

    I have 200k miles on my 07 tiger. I have used only ebc since new. Had the juddering problem at 500 miles, cleaned the rotors and tossed the stock pads, all good since. Used only hh on the front. Rotors
     are still original. Get 30k out of pads. Used organic on the rear. Got 10k per set, no rotor wear. Switched to hh, felt pretty much the same, got 55k out of pads, but they wore out the rotor, so....

    UPDATE

    Just did 1200 miles to the Smokies and back. New EBC HH front pads and rear. Lots of rain & did the twisties in the wet & dry. One finger braking, no lock ups. Excellent performance. On a par with or perhaps a bit better than the OE pads that came off. Extra sticky Metzlers made a confident package.
    My only complaint is no rattle/squeal plates included in the EBC pads and no reply to two emails from EBC.

    Racetech front springs, stock shock, and suspension tuning to the owners manual with a click more damping all around for the tight turns. Pretty nice all round bike.
    Took out the airbox snorkel, but decided too much intake noise behind the taller windshield. Put it back in after cutting the blanked end open and opening the middle hole. Good compromise, no performance penalty like the OE. Love the torque of the engine.
    Thanks for all the good advice, guys!

    There are none supplied with EBC pads, so you are unlikely to get anywhere by chasing them about it.  Personally I just use the traditional method of a light smear of copper grease on the back of the pads, they don't squeal so it doesn't worry me at all.

    I swapped the old one's over, so no worries.

     EBC website shows the rattle plates. More annoyed by the premium price / no reply to two emails. They must be busy, or don't give a...
    Customer service really varies these days.

    EBC told me the latest pads do not require the backing plates and they should not be fitted.  Also nothing should be put on the backs of the pads either eg copaslip etc.
