Don't know if there is already a post on this subject but I'll ho ahead and ask anyway.

Spiegler lines are on the way so I planned to change pads allso when I'm doing the lines, to try to get a bit better initial braking power.
As I found out, OEM brakes are ADVICS TOYO S30H. They are sintered pads but i think rating GG, didn't confirm that.
My plan was to swap it with BREMBO SA (what should have better friction on paper) front and SP back. There is one option further for front and that would be SR but just found out that even they are more grabbier pads they need temperature in them to be better than SA. As I'm not doing track, mostly commuting and traffic riding, here and there some twisties, now I'm wondering would SA perform better than SR in my riding style, is it worth to go SR. As by that what I found, SA work from cold better than SR but fade out quicker, on lower temp.
Did anyone used SA or SR (SC till last year) and would SA vs OEM be any difference, worth upgrade?

I have done 320mm rotors, HH EBC pads & Hell lines on my 21 09, has improved things, I do have a Brembo front master to fit as well will do that when I do the Brembo front calipers which I have not bought yet.

Yeah stock pads are GG friction rating. Some people are fine with that, just like some people are fine with OEM suspension.
I tried the Brembo SC pads just for kicks, they were a good improvement over stock, but pretty much anything will be. I still prefer Vesrah RJL's.
09 uses the same front pads as R1's and R6's, so there are plenty of choices.

Vesrah RJL pads were my favorite pad I've tried. EBC HH are a great lower cost option for your style of riding. Great initial bite, work well without a lot of heat in them. Personally haven't tried the Brembo pads.
