Brake Pads

J&P Cycles offers a wide range of motorcycle brake pads for all types of bikes and riding styles. There are three basic brake pad compounds available: sintered, organic, and semi sintered. In order to select the best pads for your bike, it is helpful to understand the pros and cons of each.

Most OEMs equip their bikes with
sintered motorcycle brake pads. These pads consist of metallic particles fused together under heat and pressure. Sintered provides quick stopping power -- hot or cold -- in varying riding conditions, and typically last longer than organic pads. However, due to the nearly pure metal construction, sintered pads are also very hard on brake rotors. Organic pads are made from a mix of fibers and fillers that are bound together with a resin. The softer compound provides a more varied and progressive feel that some riders prefer over the abrupt bite of sintered pads. Organic produces less wear on your rotors. However, they also wear out faster than sintered pads. If you are a casual rider who likes to opt for the easiest maintenance on your bike, you might want to choose organic pads because it is easier to change pads than it is rotors. Semi sintered pads combine the best of both worlds; the long life of a sintered pads with the progressive feel and lack of rotor wear of organic pads. Semi sintered falls right in the middle for durability and performance and are a good compromise if you are struggling to decide between sintered and organic.
