    Which EBC front pads do I need

    I am going to order new EBC front pads for the Hawk but I can't seem to find the exact part number I need. The Hawk isn't a common bike in Britain so it's not in the fitment list.

    I think I need Fa 142 HH but wanted to check before I ordered the wrong part.

    I have used EBC brakes for nearly 40 years and wouldn't change brand for a gold bar but the website is useless.

    Going the other way around, I checked the SBS website as it lists front brake pads for the Hawk as SBS 627, then going to the Goldfren website as they have a crossreference chart and it gives EBC 142, then it is up to you to choose compound, eg. HH.

    Choose your product (sbs.dk)

      Thanks for your help. I have saved the goldfren link it could come in very handy.

        As a quick follow-up I checked one of the older SBS catalogues as it has another reference list which compares SBS partnumbers with different thickness pads - in a pinch other types of brakepads with the same backing plate, but a different thickness, can be substituted - I do not see a problem in using a thinner than stock pad, but using a thicker pad would take some care to ensure that there is room and everyhing works as supposed. For other brands, the Goldfren crossreference chart can be used.

                FA142 is the same part number that my ST1100 uses. I like the EBC stuff. I think you still can buy the OEM pads for the ST if you wanted something other than EBC.

                  EBC is great compared to the "roll off the throttle and send her sideways" stopping method.
