Re: 4 Sale EBC FA404HH New Brake Pads $22.00
Pads fit rear brakes K1200LT
These are sintered pads and not appropriate for the LT rear rotor. I just wore out my rear rotor with Carbone Lorraine sintered pads from BBY as I trusted they sold the correct part. It wasn't until I read the EBC instructions with my new rotor where they are adamant (red font adamant) that sintered pads NOT be used with their rotor. Only organic or nothing more aggressive than the EBC V pads.
And I remember reading that BMW also used organic pads on the rear as OEM parts.
BBY insists the CL sintered pads are OK, but I disagree. However, they agreed to take them back for store credit so I am not complaining too much. However, I remember how smooth and only slightly worn my OEM rotor was when the OEM pads wore out and how it is now severely scored and worn nearly to service limits after wearing out just one set of CL pads. I don't think this is simple coincidence.
And given EBC's cautions, I will not run sintered pads again on the rear.
