Hi all,
I need some new pads.. I haven't tried a KTM dealer yet, but have sent a PM to Motostrano, and not much luck there yet but they are still checking... Anyone know where to get pads like this? Thanks!!

Can't help with a local distributor but just letting you know there should be two compounds available. That's the street one you've got pictured I believe. The track compound is the go. ;)

I'm not sure but I would figure these to be the race ones since they came out of a retired HMC/factory owned race bike. Is the S for sintered? The pad material looks and feels like ground steel!

I run the 6 pot with different part numbers for the pads, so not sure jb.

Brian, I was under the impression there was ONLY the beringer pads for it. I'd love it if there were some longer lasting (or cheaper) pads of similar performance. 3 hours riding for $100 a set at the moment.

I will chase it up myself, but if you have the part numbers handy, I'd appreciate it too.

Check with 70/30 Lockhart Philips. You can also try Frog Specialties (They are the US Importer). http://www.frogspecialties.com/

Like RC-51Juan said, Contact Frog Specialists. Philippe is the man I go through, not to sure who else there is there. I personally know Philippe and know that he will do whatever it takes to take care of a customer.

I got them on the way! AussieDevo you were absolutely right.. The "S" is the street pads and the race pads have to get hot to work. I ordered the race pads but I could see where on some tracks you'd want the street pads I guess. we'll see.. I can always get the street pads if the race pads dont work well for me.

I talked to Phillippe at Frog etc and he is definately the way to go. Thanks everybody for pointing me in the right direction... Joe from Motostrano actually pointed me there yesterday as well. I have a set on the way and they were $49.95 plus a few bucks shipping. Thanks again!!! As usual SMJ rocks!!

ok...found it...the problem is that the beringer was a rare duck for KTM's but fairly common with berg's....both made by Beringer one's blue and ones orange...I have one of each....soooo in older KTM hard parts cats. they had them listed with 310 mm rotors then they went to 6 pot then radials....I still like the 4 pot brakes...the other ones are waaay too touchy for me, hard to modulate, but thats just my humble opinion....anyways for future reference........

EBC # is FA 158 for organic and FA 158 HH for sintered which is considered long lasting (sintered is more of a metallic pad).....also Braking's number is 31-746 which is the same as sintered but has two vertical grooves though the pad which I wasn't all that impressed with...
Hope that helps....:D

Hey Brian,

Where did you get the EBC FA 158 HH pads at? I'm trying to find them online without much luck. How do they compare with the oem pads in the Husaberg FTE caliper?

Thanks,

Mike
