Most motorcycle problems are caused by the nut that connects the handlebars to the saddle.

A quick brake pad question

Post by Grarea on Wed 03 Oct 2018, 10:51 am

In my crate I have three sets of brake pads.
Can someone please confirm my thoughts on these?
Are they any good?

EBC FA209/2 front pads for my CB500s and they are pretty good, EBC, right? 

Goldfren S33 type number 023 sintered metal although it  also says ceramic carbon.
Rear pads for the cb500s right? Any good?

ThenI have 
Pyramid Parts PP174 they look different from the Goldfren.
I can't find a list of compatible bikes for the pad numbers.

I can't comment on any pads but a search on eBay did find one listing which says the PP174 are compatible rear pads for a CB500. All other listings for 'Honda 500' were for the CBF. Another 380 listings are for various makes and models of bike 600cc upwards.

Pyramid Parts PP174 on ebay


Perhaps you could message the ebay seller for confirmation  ??

Although the listing is in German the business address is in Scotland

The 209/2 's are fine for normal road use. It does depend on whether you have a brembo or nissin caliper though.

Cheers for that,
I have Brembo.

I contacted Pyramid Parts (yeah, I know, durrrrr).
They very kindly replied:

These will fit CB500 04-07. CB600 Hornet 98-00. CB600 00-12. 


So, I reckon they are from my old Hornet.


So, just the Goldfren ones. They are right for the CB500
Are they ok? 
Well, actually, they are just for the rear aren't they?

Some months ago I installed the 209/2 for the front and 213 for the rear. They are in very good shape and working wonderfully even for my 24/7 bike usage.
I found them in amazon for a good price but maybe you can find them cheaper.
I think EBC is a good brand to trust.
