Default sintered brake pads?

from what ive read sintered brake pads help stop better but can wear down your rotors faster, but then i read the opposite. sometimes the internet is annoying. i just wanted to ask you guys the truth before i ordered some

I am wondering the same thing... I was looking at EBC HH sintered pads for my CBR... they were the recommended pad for my last bike (Ninja 250)

I want something that somehow is a balance between dust, performance and rotor wear.

Even the stock brake pads are sintered metallic pads. The difference in types of metallic pads is what type of sintered metal that is used. Sintered iron, sintered bronze, sintered steel, sintered copper, mixtures of different metals, how much sintered metal is in the pad, etc, etc, etc. All metallic pads wear the rotors, but some are more aggressive than others, and of course, the more aggressive ones will wear the rotors quicker. Save some money and stick with the OEM type pads. Unless you're racing and looking for every last bit of stopping power that you can get, you don't need the more aggressive pads.

I've always used EBC HH pads and never had an issue with my rotors, and my bike has 56k+ on it.

For the street bike, I stay with the Honda OEM pads. They're just as good as anything you can get for for normal street use and the price is fine. If you want real track stopping power, I use Vesrah RJL. I'm not a big fan of the EBC HH pads, they tended to fade after heavy usage.

I bought them from my Honda dealer for $55 for the pair (2 sets, total 4 pads for the front). Never bought them on-line. The EBC's ran around $10 more for a set, Vesrah around $90 for a set.

Just check on ebay. USA-Motorcycles has complete front/rear sets of OEM type pads for $39.99 shipped. They aren't Honda pads, but are OEM style and material. I've had great luck with them. Clicky

That's a great price. Reviews look good. How long do they last for you?
