I bought the ebc severe duty pads for the kodaik from Rocky Mountain ATV. Ive been pleased with the life of them and the fact that they helped cut down on the squeaking.

I like EBC, put those on the back of the sport since it was just a single set.

Here's what I just put on the Grizz... the prices are coming down a little bit, I paid $48.50 w/ freeS&H.

I used the EBC severe duty on the 700 when I replaced them. They appeared to be about twice the thickness of the factory pads.

You should be OK Ruger. Just don't try to eat anything that comes from China. Suspect

I have the same pads from the same source that you have. My Grizz had right at 2000 miles on the factory pads. The front pads still had at least a couple rides left in them. I changed the fronts but did not change the backs. The back pads were like new in thickness compared to the new pads I bought. Next time I'll only need to buy the front pads. Hopefully the made-in-China pads will last as long as the most likely made-in-Japan pads that came on my unit from the factory. Every 2000 miles would seem like good brake life to me. Smile

Well tonight I took the old pads off. I haven't really wanted to go and work in a cold garage, but tonight I went ahead and sacked up. Lets just say I really got my money's worth out of those factory pads. Course both inside pads were worse than the outers. The left wheel inside brake pad was pretty much down to the metal. Thankfully those factory don't have rivets, so if anything it was for the most part smooth metal contacting the rotor.
Main thing NO rotor damage

I'll get the new ones on tomorrow night.

Congrats on no damage to the rotors...

The 2nd set of fronts I replaced at 3300 were just starting to touch metal also.
Those replaced the originals at the 1700 mile mark and still had a little life left.

Now all four corners have new pads and new wheel bearings, with new grips
and the installed 'puter it's like riding a LazyBoy...

Cool thanks, looks like I should have a while on ours before I'll need new pads.

I would look at them when you hit 2000. The inside pad wears faster than the outside pads.

That pic looks like it should be a Pink Floyd album cover.
