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....
