I have a set of these (http://www.harley-davidson.com/gma/gma_product.jsp?PRODUCT%3C%3Eprd_id=84552444183878 3&FOLDER%3C%3Efolder_id=2534374309030571&ASSORTMENT%3C%3East_id=2534374309030571&bmUID=1093016008392&bmLocale=en_CA) brake rotors coming next week and I want to get brake pads that won't scuff the shit out of them. Can anybody suggest brands and corresponding part numbers for a 2004 FLSTF?

Thanks in advance.

Hey speedman. If you go to the rotor page you posted and click on the word "caution" under the rotor picture it gives you all the part # you need.

I think you would be safe using any name brand kevlar pads.

I saw that RW, but my buddy who used the recommended HD pads still had some serious scoring on his rotors. I am looking for something aftermarket that somebody can recommend first hand.

Kevlar pads are the only way to go, nice & soft plus they stop great
They are the only pads I will use.


HD has nothing avalible that I would use at this time.

They give more dust but cleaning is half the fun :D

I put Russwll polished rotors on 3 years ago and am running ceramic pads. NO DUST or squeel and I only have to wipe down the rotors with a clean cloth and hit it with some polish and they still look new after 15k miles.

I use EBC Kevlars on my polished rotors. They leave a nice satin sheen on the braking surface. They are about 19 bucks a pair from Jireh's.
