    Excellent - had a set on my last bike, a Katana 1100 (the original one, not the later piles of s*** you americans still called katana's) and they mad a big difference over the GSXR ones I had fitted.

      What pads did you use or which one's work the best for the track?

        i've heard nothing but good things about them. i'll be getting a set shortly for my race bike.

        performance friction pads are what seem to be a decent set to use. it's progressive unlike the EBC pads which seem more "binary" (on or off). that way you can trail it w/ more finesse

          How do they compare to the wave rotors? Better for racing?

            I have not had a chance to use "wave" rotor's. Personaly I'm sticking with my EBC Pro-Lite's.
            As for what compound to use on the pads for "race" applications... I dunno' I just use them on the street

              Oh yeah... EBC DOES have a "full float" kit for the Pro-Lites, BUT they will NOT warranty them.
              Go fig'

                    I have a set on my TLR and ride on the street. I feel they are alot better than the stocks, however I can not say for sure... I added a set of pm wheels at the same time.

                    I run ebc double h pads with the rotors. The pig sure brakes now :-)

                      all the racers i've talked to won't touch the waves. those that have, switched either back to stock or went mostly w/ the prolites.

                          i got prolites on my tlr track bike, as well as ebc hh pads to go with it. I can't really tell much of a difference at all from stock rotors, i guess really a good set of pads, and a good bleed of the brake lines and your set. I got some custom made SS lines installed, but they only prevent the fading of the hard braking. Otherwise, still, the TLR has the best brakes i've ever tried, way better than the mushy brakes on the gsxr600 i had before.
