yamaha v star 1100 rear brake pads suggestions

I'm in need of some new brake pads for my V Star 1100 (2003)...
What sort of brands do you guys recommend these days?
Any quick tips/top brands to look for?
Not have much money,so Google tells me try cheap brake pads replacement like Sixity or Foreverun Motor.
Any feedback or suggestions ?
Thank you.

I've used these the last two brake pad changes. Lasted 20k miles plus. No issues or concerns on my daily commute.

i ride a 950, but EBC double H sintered is about the best pads you can put on your bike.
here's a tip: don't cheap out on brake pads. skip out on a couple starbucks lattes or something and use that money on pads that will severely improve your ability to stop your bike and save your life.

I only run EBC on my Harley and I just bought this 1100 and they will go on there as well... Quality stuff...the double sintered is a bit hard on the rotors, it ate both my front rotors at about 50000 miles but the stopping power was worth it...

I believe mine are semi sintered and I haven't had any problems stopping or fast rotor wear
