I like the factory OEM brake pads over the others I've tried. Brake pad and brake rotor compatibility is pretty critical when it comes to consistent, predictable stopping. It took me a while to adapt my riding habits to match the braking of the bike. Once I quit over-riding the brake system, I quit having problems stopping. I've had the option since day one of upgrading the brakes. I just haven't found it necessary.
