Aftermarket Brake Pads

Has any one had experience with aftermarket brake pads for GS 1200? Do they work as well as BMW pads? Any excessive wear on rotors? Costs? Brand? Bruce Parrish

I had EBCs on my FJR when I bought it. They chewed up the rotors pretty good. I would stick with OEM.

I purchased front/rear brake pads from Wunderlich manufactured by TRW Sintered for my 2013 R1200GS. I'm very pleased with them and they were much cheaper than BMW OEM pads.
