I must say I was impressed with the speed I received the brake pads, they turned up yesterday!
I did pay the extra to get them sent express but still... :eek  :runyay

Well, I just fitted the rear pads...
No issue other than a bit of fiddling around to get the pistons pushed in enough to get the new pads in.  :thumbs

Front brake pads fitted...  :thumbs

Now, hopefully I'll get my bike all back together this week and then get to try these pads out.

To be continued...

Okay, I got my ST back together tonight so I then went for a 10-15 minute ride just to see how things were.
All good so far....
The brakes felt good although I only applied them fairly gently as they are still bedding in.
I'll probably go for a proper ride tomorrow...  :13Candy
