So Semi-Metallic means the EBC HH will be OK with the roters. Hopefully.

I have 20K miles on EBC-HH front pads and see little wear on either pad or disc. Re the noise some complain about: I hear very little sound emitting from them. Not enough to bitch about.

Yep; HH is the way to go for our X bikes. I too like the EBC-HH pads. I have bought other brands too but if I have a choice without cost or other things like maybe selling the bike soon or something; EBC is the brand I personally like. Lyndall is good too though.

The organic will work but will wear out fast.

Default Noise is good.

Second set of EBC HH pads I have had on my bike. Stock ones on my 2011 XR did not do much to stop the bike, kind of felt wooden. The noise is not that bad, it is worth putting up with the noise for the extra stopping power. Road my son-in-laws Kawasaki ZX10R and the brakes up front make the same noise. By the way most of us on here seem to make our bikes noisier on purpose,ha, ha. Does seem weird at first the noise up front from the pads after the install, but it is not that bad.

Buckeye, Arizona(USA) 2011 Victory Cross Roads, Black police bag guards, black engine guards, black handle bars, Triumph Tiger mirrors, Triumph hand grips, set speedo/tach back 5" , adjustable timing wheel, Lloyzz Fuel Programmer III & air filter. Modified exhaust, made stock into 2 into 1. MRA windshield, Rotated front fender forward,relocated ignition switch, Bad Ace Fuel Tank Risers, Fat front tire.

Is it the same part number for the EBC HH? I found FA347HH as a front left. What about the front right? My OEM pads aren't worn out, but I'm just doing research for when I do where them out!
