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.

EBC Brake pads

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!!!

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.

Heard that myself and from other people that the HH's can be a bit on the buzzing/scraping just all around pad that makes noise, did a set of HH's on a CBR I had for a while and it made noise, went over to Braking pads and those never made a sound.

Victory 2012 - EBC Brake Pads

Upon the advice of the Parts Mgr at my local Victory dealer I ordered the EBC brake pads front and rear. They work great.

Only thing I have noticed is when I apply the front brakes i hear this odd sound sounds like bees(tweeting/beating) , I thought it might be the pads trapping air between the holes on the rotor. One of my moto friends at work says, 'I didn't seat the brakes properly, and that I need to accelerate down the road real fast up to 30 and hard press on the front brake at least five time...' I went through a basic brake seating process even applying both front and back before leaving the driveway to adjust the pads according to instructions from the brake info from replacing brakes, SO I really don't think that's it.

Has anyone ever heard that odd sound after swapping out to the EBC's? I never heard it from the factory brake pads....

While we are on this subject, I'll toss this tidbit in for your consideration....
I found that HH pads in the rear had too much bite, especially for trail braking and had a tendency to lock the rear wheel under hard braking. So I switched to GG pads in the rear and now I have far better braking control.

EBC has much better stopping power, but notorious for making noise. Caused by vibration. They need some disc brake quiet compound on the rear of the pads to reduce some or move any factory damper plates from old pads to the EBCs. Have seen aftermarket damper pads that attach to brake pads….but have not tried any myself.

NOEMTZ makes a very good point--I think too many remove their OEM pads and toss 'em without transferring the damper plates to their new ones. Naughty, naughty.

why would people do THAT .... I have Lyndall front and EBC rear, I changed the angle of the foot lever slightly so when riding hard the rear not locks-up ....
