    DP brake pads any good

    I found some DP Sport HH+ sintered front brake pads for a good price, but have searched and not found any reviews on them. Anyone used these? thanks!

    I haven't either, and no reviews on the vast dark reaches of the inter webs isn't a good sign. Brake pad compounds are surprisingly unregulated.

    EBC HH is a decent street compound and the general go-to opinion on this board, and will work well for most people. They can collect uneven deposits if not cared for/ bedded in properly. Uneven deposits can feel like a warped brake rotor. If thats the case, clean and re-bed them before you invest in a new rotor. Don't forget to flush your fluid!

    IMO: brake pads are not where you want to save a buck.

    Point taken. Yes I've seen so many no name brake pads out there, it boggles my mind that some random (prob chinese) company just pumps these things out and they sell for super cheap. I thought I remember DP pads from back in the day, but sometimes companies go under and then someone buys the name and just dumps cheap parts under that name.

    Anyway, I'll prob stick w OEM, just street riding this thing. Thx
