+1, thats the setup I have to .

I ended up getting a full set of EBC HH sintered front & back - I road trip with the mrs & gear on the back, with the extra weight I could do with some extra stopping power. Now all I have to do is wait for them to arrive...

Over time, yes they do, but it is very minimal, you will still get 75 to 100k miles out of a stainless rotor if not more.

Well, the pad #'s are the same for 2006-2010 so I would call the dealer and see if the 2005 takes the same pad as a 2006 and if so order yourself some 2006 DP pads!

Or as another poster stated, you can use the Ferodo's. I have those on the front (BrakeTech sells them for use on their discs) and they work very well. But I will go to DP's when the Ferodo's wear out...

That what I'm going to next change, organic on the rear. It locks up too easy on me right now.

HH sintered are OEM equipment I believe.

Thruxton fronts are EBC FA142HH which crosses to DP117,

but Bonneville EBC pads will fit the Thruxton front calliper, have used them for ages; FA196HH which crosses to DP118

Also FA226HH same as FA142HH, but with stainless heat sheilds, even higher performance pads available for Bonn/Thrux/Scram/America/Speedy; EPFA226HH

what I would like to know where in Oz can you go to buy them over the counter without having to have them to be ordered in!
I was going to just get the standard EBC pads but seems no one has them or the HH pads in stock. and the EBC website where it directs you to Oz is rubbish

on another note just to see how they go, ordered a set of front and rear cheapie XYT pads on an ebay dealer for about $30 front and rear postage included to my front door. about to fit them this afternoon

As the only person that is likely to stock the EBC for a triumph is a triumph dealer, things might get tricky. Peter stevens couldnt do it for me they suggested Ferodo. I got mine from Road and River in geelong. I did have to wait 2 days!

True, the OEM pads are HH sintered, but I noticed a fair improvement in stopping power with the EBC pads. While we're on the subject, the OEM brakeline is a braided stainless, but my braking also improved with an aftermarket line from Speigler.
