I looked on the search forum and came up EBC or DP or LRB
Ferodo. Its all pretty much a coin flip. Kinda like what oil do you like

I have never felt a more dramatic difference in braking than when I installed EBC-HH pads in the front brakes. In 64 years of riding, that says a lot.

I like Lyndalls myself, probably go up from Z -plus to the Gold on the front next time as I'm now running the fatter XC wheel on front if my Vegas.
Can't comment on EBC as haven't used them.
Anything gotta be better than stock.
TIP.... Clean caliper pistons before pushing them back and change brake fluid at least every 2 years, I change mine yearly.

I have the EBC-HH on the front of my Highball. Stopping power increased. Great pads. Only thing I don't like is the buzzing noise they make.

I bought a set of HH sintered from D2moto a brand called Volar. Really inexpensive. Someothers use them with good results.

I went to the local Indian/Victory dealer, asked Ray the Parts Manager, as to what he recommended for replacing the factory pads, He got me the EBC, and they are AWESOME!!!

Question

The EBC HH pads (FA347-HH) are only listed for the Highball from 2014 onward. Is there a difference in the 2013 & the 14+?

I very much doubt it.

here is all the calipers that are the same as yours. So the pads would fit
