I'm finally stocking Vesrah RJL brake pads for the Yamaha R3. These are the same pads I'm using, they provide excellent initial bite and a very linear brake feel. Look no further. This is such a simple and inexpensive upgrade to the R3. You'll never realize just how much better the brakes can be until you try these:

Installed mine today. I used your website as a quick guide. First after I removed unit I gave it a quick spray over with brake cleaner and had a towel rag below to catch all the crud. I than used Acetone with a Q-tip and then installed pads. I did a soft break in tonight. Just rode a hour and hardly used the brake's. Just softly at the stop signs. When I got back outside my garage. I hit it with my air compressor fine nozzle just to see how much dust I made. A bit blew out. I wear a 3M mask when I do this. I went on a 120 mile round trip today @ PCH to Mulholland past Rock Shop and I guess they call it the snake. No one was there it was nice. When I got back today I changed the Oil @ 3800 and did the reset and installed the brake pads. Going back out to break in the brakes.

Excellent! I can't wait to hear your first impressions.

Nice Jesse! Bummer, got some Galfer's already, but will definitely try the Vesrah's next. Heard good things about them. Only fully sintered ones available, correct? No semi-sintered or organics available? How do they feel? Are they really sticky and more race track centric or are they good for the street freaks too?

200+ miles on the street with these Pads so far. ( Mulholland that is.) Pads with ss brake lines are way better then before thats for sure. My single rides are around 125 to 150 average.

Sorry for the delay, I didn't see this post until last night. These pads are excellent for street or track. Because the R3 is so light and top speeds are much lower than bigger bikes, race pads do not need to handle nearly the same heat as they do with bigger bikes, so race pads and street pads are interchangeable. That's why Vesrah only makes the RJL for the R3, and not the Super RJL, which is a race only pad that requries extra heat to work properly.
The RJL is an excellent street or race pad for the R3.
Jesse

Are these pads for track/race only or also street and is this for the front only or also rear?

Thanks!!
