Default 2013 XCT rear pads replacements

Questions!
I need to replace my rear pads on my 2013 XCT. This would be my first brake replacement job. I've watched the Witch Dr. video on how to do it. Looks pretty straight forward and about a 20 minute or so job. Any tips or gotcha's I should be aware of? And of course my local dealer would be out of stock of pads. So I'll have to order them. At 45k miles I rather be doing things like this myself. When the dealership replaced the brake pads last time they went with EBC HH brakes about 40 bucks a pop. I found these on EBay Has any had experience with these pads?

Or would it be better to stay with the EBC brand?

Replacing rear pads on an XCT is cake - 20 minutes including getting out your tools and putting them away I haven't replaced them yet (25m miles) but have removed them to make rear wheel reinstallation easier.

The only thing I had happen once was the pad spring popped out and it took me a bit to figure out how it went back. If you are careful, you won't have this problem. If you do, it's simple to take care of.

read customer feedback carefully on ebay lots of counterfeit things end up on there that's why the prices are so good in some cases.

I went to Lyndalls pads dearer but good!
Make sure you thoroughly clean your pistons before pushing them back in and its a good idea to bleed all your old fluid out so youve got nice clean fresh brake fluid.

I recently replaced the front and rear brake pads on my 13 XC and it went very well. I have no mechanical ability and was able to do it with very little issues. The only one was the front and getting the spring back but I got it after about 10 minutes and watching the Witchdoctors video a couple times. So it goes to show how easy these bikes are to work on it I can do it.

I went with the EBC HH pads front and rear, which I purchased from BikeBandit.com. I have no problems or complains with these pads and they do provide a little better braking feel and power over the stock pads.

That should have been 25K.
However, 25M would still mean 25,000 and 25MM would be 25,000,000
