2010 brakes

20 posts in this topic

so i serchd this and didnt find any thing sorry in advance if its been posted

My brake pads on my 2010 are almost dead now i have been told that honda pads will fit .

y would a person want to use honda pads over yamaha and ebc or such.

Is there a differnt style difference between the yamaha and honda and is there any advantage with one over the other?

Another thing is to change your brake fluid often.

I run ebc MXS pads and they work great but I also have a oversize rotor.

I put the larger caliper off an 06yz and it added a lot of bite to the front brakes along with a high quality brake fluid. I'm tempted to try a braided line as well, has anyone tried a gafler brake line or similar product?

I put an CR routed SS line on my '03, and it was a significant improvement, but that was the old, long hose style. IMO, you might not notice much difference compared to a fairly fresh OEM hose on an '05 or later model. Maybe you would.

So you want better stopping on the 2010? I have never ridin a bike that stopped this well, almost went of the bars first time out. SS will make a significant difference but I won't even consider it on mine, maybe when the rubber gets old and spongy.

Go with the EBC Extreme Pro. They take some getting used to but once you do you won't try anything else..

I've never ridden a bike that stops so weak!! Came from Kawasaki 250F, the YZF brakes seems much to lame!

Helped out with SS Line, and a Braking Batfly Rotor with Braking brakepads. Now i absolutely love my brakes! MUCH of power and completely easy controllable!

No thanks but I like the 2010 brakes better than previous models not sure if anything is different other than being brand new. My other yammys really don't stop worth a crap

I put an oversized rotor on the front and it works well with the EBC MX pads. I also put on a SS line and it did not make much of a difference. Overall there good but not as good as my 09 Kawi was!
