Not with 150 miles on it, you'll be fine. I swapped mine with more than that.

Does anyone know if the OEM stock brake pads are organic, sintered or what?

has anyone tried Vesrah?

I've read somewhere in here that they're good. How's the wear? and what is its character? i'm looking for something more powerful for those track days we have..

Fantastic, much better stopping power. Better feel. Quicker wear than oem, should still last a while if not used track ONLY

I just ordered a set of Vesrah RJLs last night. The best price I could find was $61 shipped here:

thanks for the feedback guys. The only brands that I have seen locally available are Bendix, Vesrah and Elig. I'm kinda leaning towards the Vesrah at the moment. Are there different kinds for the R3 (i.e. soft, hard, etc)?

Has anyone improved an abs version with the best sintered pads?

And did it bite harder then let go?
Or more progressive?
