Question Brake Pad Suggestions.

Looking through different options that are supposed to be a fit, although some have different mounting points (ears).

First time doing this on a bike, but it looks enough like my truck.

Any specific suggestions for a 650?

Last three sets of pads on my 1100 I've used EBC Double H pads. I get 20k plus miles on them. Works great without any issues. Here's the same ones for your bike.

It's probably more affordable in the US, but here in Canada they want $40 per set for my 1100 (that's 2 for the front and 1 for the back). I was a little hesitant to spend $120 for brake pads so I went to eBay to see what I could find. Got a complete set for $26. They work fine and even if they only last a year, I figure I'm still ahead of the game over the ones at my local dealer.
