when I went to replace mine I got sintered metal& ceramic brake pads. model# FA124. memory don't go back over a year as to where I got them but I got both front and the rear pads for around 35$. Ghost Rider 2 just got the same ones í believe a couple months ago for the same price. the work pretty good in wet conditions, no slipping. maybe he'll see this and jump on or you could pm him.

ebay has them for both front and the rear pads for 28$ free shipping. just do a search for your bike and get the list of them

replacing them is pretty easy, at least mine were. just remember to clean the calipers and any brake dust you can see with brake cleaner spray. don't need all that junk rolling around in there, could shorten the life of the pads. also remember to put some gear grease on the threads to keep them from seizing and possible rusting. helps them to go in easier too

The set I put on the 1500 came from ebay. They seem to work pretty good. The ones I bought are a carbon pad. Will go look and see if I still can pull it up
