I recently read an article from 4-5 years ago praising the OEM brake pads. They made it sound like they are much better than aftermarket pads and said they were really impressed with them. Is this true in the opinion of this board? I have the stock front brakes with new stainless lines and either EBC or SBS pads, you know the pads shops keep around. I haven't run with the stock pads in a long time and they were pretty much worn out when I had them. The brakes right now really aren't all that good. I have already ajdusted the position of the OEM lever to maximize hand leverage -- which did help. Perhaps I should try OEM pads before committing to a 450R brake and spindle swap?
