Hi guys,

Anybody know where I can get genuine Triumph brake pads for an '05 Tiger online in the UK?

Thanks

Russ

Sprint, as linked above would probably be your best bet as they stock Nissin pads. Would be preferable to spending £30 a pair at the dealer. I don't know if they changed the front pads too on the 05, but Honda dealers can be useful - including David Silver spares who sells OEM (Nissin) pads for Hondas.

Definitely agree with the Nissin vote (after all, they made the calipers so should know a thing or two!).

I just had to bin my last set of Nissin pads; they lasted well, but a stuck piston caused one pad to wear rather unevenly towards the end, which accelerated their demise.

I now have a set of Carbone Lorraine pads with which I've previously had good experiences on other bikes.

But... well... they just don't seem as responsive :( They're still good stopping material, don't get me wrong, it's just that they don't seem to have the same instant confidence-inspiring bite.

I miss the Nissin pads!

But yeah, my Nissin pads came from Sprint Manufacturing, along with my non-OEM discs which are bliss compared with the warped, cracked OEM Sunstar ones :wink:
