Galfer full-met ceramic pads deliver
By Heavy Handed Braker
from San Jose, CA
Comments about Galfer Race Sintered Full-Metallic Ceramic Brake Pads:
I've installed these pads on my 2nd Gen Yamaha FZ1 with new rotors and I experienced very quick bedding / break-in of the pads. Combined with the stock master and steel braided lines the result is aggressive 1-finger stopping power with great feedback and feel. As advertised the pads don't need to be heated up to deliver good performance. Since I only use them on the street (semi-fast mountain / canyon riding in SF Bay Area) I haven't experienced any difference in performance from hard riding (hot brakes) and moderate / easy riding (cooler or cold brakes) so as a "race" pad on the street I found little to no concern. Hopefully they're kind to my rotors but my main criteria was stopping performance so only time will tell how quickly they wear my brand new OE rotors. Even after extensive, fast street riding coming down the mountain I haven't experienced any brake fade or performance drop-off and this FZ1 isn't light so it will exercise the pad for sure. Any gripes or negatives? I haven't experienced any problems or issues of concern in the ~750 miles of riding with them. The only thing I can see to make them better would be if they were free and installed themselves. Otherwise, I couldn't ask for anything more.I would definitely buy these pads again and I'm even considering them for my GSXR750.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

I have put about 250 miles on the pads so far. They broke in real easy and instantly added braking power. They were easy to install and minimal tools were needed.

Good product at a good price

I've used both these and the EBC HH's on several bikes and cant really tell the difference. These wear a little faster but do not appear to be quite as hard on the rotors. Last set was ready for replacement after 14k miles. Good both wet and dry and a significant improvement over most any stock pads.

upgraded to this pad from stock pad and notice a great difference in stopping power, now I have to be more gentle pulling my break in.
