I recently got a klr and it needs new rear brake pads. They squeal when I come to a stop. Anybody recommend a good all around riding brake pad? I live in the mouton area so alot of aggressive stopping. Thanks

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.

IMHO, the more expensive pads are not worth it. The Galfer green are great, but they wear out FAST.
