Brake option's

Postby Phil » Sun Jul 07, 2019 11:32 pm

I'm a huge fan of OEM Honda parts. What are my options as far as aftermarket brake parts?. Cost wise , OE parts for front pads and rears brake shoes are pretty much equal. Big difference I've seen in price is the front rotor. Partzilla lists it for $127 , and I've seen aftermarket EBC rotor for $65. But it doesn't appear to be any in stock. What is your preference when it comes to stopping power. Thank you !

I think the chineese front rotor is fine. I have run it for 8yrs
Its not as if the scoot is really high performance

Zoz, thanks for reply. I did just get of the phone with EBC, 86-87 Helix MD908D front brake rotor has been discontinued. But, they had 8 in stock. I told Robert is was for me personally. So I purchased 2 for a grand total of $32.00 each. Well worth the phone call I think.

Zoe, why did you choose the double h pads over the organic or basic pads ?
