If you are brake happy and get your brakes really hot a lot you might want to consider carbon/kevlar based pads. They will transmit less heat to the calipers, but they will not last as long.

EBC and other aftermarket manufacturers make brake pads that are as good or better than stock.

I have never seen any advantage in using O.E.M. brake pads.

I've got EBC HH-rated sintered pads in the original caliper on my 320mm front disc and they work very well. They have good feel and would stand my bike on its nose no problem :thumbsup::ride:
