Luiz, FWIW, I just double checked and the '98 has six bolts and the '04 has five attaching the rotor. EBC HH pads are also less expensive than OEM. They work pretty darn well.

+1 on what Brad said!

I've used EBCs and Triumph OEM (which most shops will try to force-feed you)

For the money, you cannot go wrong with the EBC pads...

Brad is right for sure...955s from VIN 132513 have 5 bolts brake disks. Found that EBC sells in Brazil so will check their prices compared with OEM.Thks. Anyone ever tried Brembo pads?

I see that most pads for my 02 are sintered brake pads. I bought my bike used so don't know everything I should about it. Did it come from the factory with sintered pads or should I stay away from them?

I just put a set of EBC HH pads on mine. I think I paid $26 per pair. Can't say a word about them yet; I haven't had the chance to ride since this weekend! :mad:

Had OEM pads in my Speed Triple.

Put EBC HH in last week, did a trackday and no word of a lie, my stopping distance under hard braking was halved compared to the OEM pads.

Am getting a 06 Tona this week, and one of the first things I'll be doing is EBC HH pads.

Okay, so I didn't remember the price very well.... BikeBandit has them for $35/pair, but you get a TriumphRAT discount.

+1 to what Tricati said. These pads are much better than stock. I've got far more braking power now than I did before; it's very impressive.

They are better than oem

EBC HH pads are the best bang for your buck. I've been using them for 20,000 miles. I've read that they wear the stock rotors down, but the only reason I replaced mine at 27,000 was because the ABM ones were cooler. The initial bite and ease of modulation make the EBC pads a no brainer.
