Be rather careful in choosing brake pads. I tried EBC and some other obscure brands and found my front disks pulsing possibly due to heat build up and warpage.

Went back to HD standard brand and problem disappeared

We sell the LRB Z plus pads for your bike for $35 a set if you interested. I had them on my 2006 streetrod and loved them.

I'll vouch for Hogpro on their recommendation for the Lyndall pads and on my excellent experience purchasing the Z pads from them.

I had put them on my '02 Deuce so it was a no brainer to go with them on the '06 SR.

I also love them. Better than the factory pads, to me.

Ok people, maybe you can help me here... I installed all 3 Lyndall sets on my SE when I swaped the calipers with chrome ones and the pads are too close to the rotors in all 3 of them, you can hear them touching when moving the bike in neutral when it's off. Even the rear rotor is marking little by little and I havent used it only for the testing while bleeding the lines. Is it a problem with these pads, has anyone else experienced it? I read somewhere around here that is normal in the front ones, but my mechanic told me it should not be so, since that would tend to overheat the brake system in long trips, which makes sense, and needless to say make the bike slower and "hold it" constantly...

I did not notice any more contact with the Lyndalls than I had with the factory pads on stock calipers, front and rear.

I would think one would experience "fade" if you applied the brake and the rotors were over heated. Every time I grab a handful of front brake, I'm not feeling anything but deceleration.

And she sho ain't no mo slower.

Yes, SR = VRSCR, k?
