1050 rear brake pads.
« on: May 09, 2021, 22:25:39 »
Hello! Does anyone have any experience of alternative rear brake friction material for the 1050? Front brake performance is fine, but, in my opinion,the rear is poor.

   Hello Bazzie, it is common knowledge now that Suzuki make their rear brake pads from old bathroom tiles.I have been using EBC FA174 pads on my bikes for a few years and find them great, not sure whether they will fit your bike but the HH material is much better than the original.

The 1050 has the same rear caliper as my 1000, it's an OK brake at best no matter what pads. I've used EBC+ hh which where better but now I use DP+ hh which are better again.
