    Sixity Brake pads

    Have you guys ever used these brake pads?

    I just replaced my pads and I really had to work them in there. Now they rub and the disks get really hot after about 3 miles. Is this usual or did I mess up buying these brake pads?

    Also they did not come with the metal backer plate, should I use that or just pitch it?

    I bought the bike used and am trying to replace the brake pads. I know it has been a while but I can feel the brakes when I am coasting. I am sure it will go away but I don't want to warp my disks.

    Re: Sixity Brake pads

    I've always gone EBC. There are many out there. Ferrodo, Galpher and so on. The choice is yours.

    Wigo. Are you saying that your new pads rub and heat your disks while you are not using the brakes?

    If the answer is yes then get those pads off your bike before you get hurt.

    Either they are the wrong pads- have been installed wrong - or you have air in your system which is not allowing your pistons to fully retract.

    The metal pads are spacers, if you have spacers installed now, and your master cylinder is not air locked, then remove the spacers, re- bleed your system and try again.....but either way, if I am reading you correctly, something is wrong.


    just a tip, but when I install new front pads, I will use the old pads to "pry" the brake piston all the way back into the caliper. However, before doing this, you may want to open up your master cylinder , and using a syringe or something similar, remove most of your brake fluid and then replace the cover. (so when the piston is pushed in ,it does not spray brake fluid on your paint....brake fluid strips paint)

    This way, when I install a set of pads , two things.....one, the new pads go on with out touching the disk- and two, I evacuate most of the old brake fluid from the top, and by the time I replace fluid....bleed down and top up, I will have little, if any old fluid in my front system.

    Re: Sixity Brake pads

    Turns out the pads are a bit off. I grinded the pad for a few seconds and they work much better. The price is really good but there was some trouble overall. The guy on ebay is really good to deal with and even said he would take them back. He does carry EBC. I like the pads though but the first hundred miles they run cause they are just a bit thicker than oem.

    I took the spacers and metal sheilds off and ran like that for a while then after grinding the back ones down a bit put the spacer and shield back on.

    I saw those on ebay and decided to pass on them as I figure there would be some challenges with them that may cause damage far greater than the savings. If you do a search for FA261HH the sixty pads come up in the search as he selling on a low price like $14.98 w free shipping per pair if I remember correct

    I just ordered ebc 261hh all round

    Re: Sixity Brake pads

    Good question...
    I am not sure. I spent the money and so I made them work...
    Not sure if I would buy them again but the company was real nice and had great service. He said I could return them and he carries EJB or whatever.

    Re: Sixity Brake pads

    I just had a new rear tire put on a couple days ago - tech said I had about 30% of my rear brakes left...so I assume that for my '02 Bird I can use EBC FA261HH pads, 2 pairs front and 1 pair rear?

    yeppers and you can find em on ebay at $27.99 a pair plus 8.50 shipping but if you send a message to the guy he will ship 3 sets out for $8.50 postage but you have to pay outside ebay as I contacted him for a 3 set purchase

    Re: Sixity Brake pads

    BobZ,

    I wrote the guy that Wigo (above) used on these Sixity pads... his ebay name was Sixity... I'm guessing that's who Cisco is referrring to above. I can't copy his response to me from ebay so here's the gist...

    He also sells the EBC 261HH pads for $28 a pair, and he said $84 for 3 sets with free shipping. Or you can always go with his Sixity brand pads on the cheap... he explained that he's sold tons of these Sixity brands without issues and Wigo might have not bled his system prior to the install of the new pads... but that was his guess.

    If you do a search on ebay for EBC 261HH pads I'm pretty sure he will come up. They are the same pads used on the VFR and probably some other brands as well...

    Not me...cannot go wrong with EBC pads and the cost is well worth it, especially when it can mean life or death.

    Otherwise, I see that is your first post - maybe an Intro (in the appropriate section)?

    Either way, best of luck and do some searching on this site - wealth of info to be had!
