Have had them on for about 4 months, and they are made in Europe, which by the way has a higher standard than the US. Most aftermarket motorcycle pads are EBCs, even ones used by the dealers. Green stuff is the type of pad they sell. I have had more problems with replacement rotors from sores being bad than good due to the quality of the central American made parts. EBC rotors are not drilled they are dimpled and slotted to reduce heat which can warp rotors and have a lifetime warranty. Was pulling a loaded car hauler and had to stop because some douchbag panicked at a yellow and slammed on the brakes, I stopped without incedent, might not if I had the cental American store brakes.
