My front brakes are in need of replacement. So Im going to just replace both rear and front. I have an 09 848. Just wondering.I'm not tracking it but I do ride street aggressive. Heard the combo of front HH and organic in rear is good for that.

Just want some Idea and results others have brand and type prices as well? this will be my first break change out.

Im sponsored by DP Brakes, so I'd like to toss their name into the ring! I put new pads on last year with new Hong Kong rotors....wow, huge upgrade from stock! Very impressed. They were amazing right out of the box. Believe me, sponsorship or not, if they were shit, I'd tell you...

Where would you get a pair of them for a good price here in the states.

Got my DP xrace off eBay. I upgraded my brembo master at the same time so I can single out the pad performance individually but holy crap does this thing stop now!!!

If you do this yourself using EBC HH, make sure you file all of the burrs off and possibly the paint of the guiding edges of the pads before installing.
EBC does not fit perfectly into Ducati calipers.
They need to be able to slide in and move freely.
I have found this to be true on all of the Ducati's I have wrenched on.

My buddy did his 900sp. Then dropped the bike off at the house for me to go over it.
I went for a test ride and broke the rear caliper.
I hit the rear brake and the pads didn't have enough play to release the rotor.
Lucky for me the caliper didn't end up in the wheel.

Is there a video out there for this?

I ran EBC HH Sintered Front and Rear. Picked them up on Amazon with my Prime Account. Came in two days and at a very competitive price. Good bite and have put some track miles on them.

Not sure what the fitment issues mentioned are since I have not experienced that. Also did 100 track miles last weekend.
