I thought my brakes didn't feel as they did when new so Had a look at my pads front and rear.
The fronts looked pretty good for wear. The rears looked low so I pulled them out.
They are the original Nissin pads S 20 AHH stamped on the back.
My local dealer tells me these are £48 a set. As that's double what I expected I'm looking at alternative pads.
Goldfran, EBC or maybe Brembo. Any experience with other pads?

I put ebc on mine. I don't recall the part number, but I did use touratech to get it, then searched it on google/amazon.... I like the ebc quite a bit better than the oem.

LOL that’s not worn..
here’s a set I pulled off my old bike.
Haven’t replaced them on the AT (yet) but you would think/expect any of the big manufacturers of brakes would be good, you kinda get what you pay for.. Not to say don’t shop around and just get the most expensive ones you find. Some sites waaaayyy over charge.

I got a set of DP pads for the rear on amazon for about $37.

They seem ok, nothing special, no complaints either.
Originals lasted about 6k miles, and had a little life in them.
I could feel the extra travel in the pedal from the oems wearing down.

Has anyone ever hit the rear brakes and the pedal just bottoms out and you had to pump them back up???
That has happened on my '17
