    The FA229HH fits the left (clutch) side front caliper of the Suzuki V-Strom DL1000 (mine is a 2008). Get the FA231HH for the right (throttle) side caliper and you’re all set. You might also want to invest in new spring clips for the caliper pins as well.

    These pads take some time to bed-in if you ride normally. Once they’re bedded they bite surpass than OEM organics. The Strom’s front brakes are somewhat numb with factory pads and these HH pads help the feel considerably. Quick stops from freeway speeds don’t result in as much fade as other pads that I’ve used. I’ll see how long these last, and if they’ve got a reasonable life I’ll be using them again.

    The sintered copper alloy disc pads were quick to ‘bed in’ with excellent feel and stopping power from the get go. But I have yet to do a maximum effort stop, but have no doubts that doing so will accomplish a small manageable stop. Only one problem, the set delivered was not for my make/develop and were returned for a refund. I bought the assess set from a local dealer, for ten dollars more, it would have been nice to have gotten the assess set from Amazon.

    Does NOT fit 2008 KLR 650, September 23, 2013

    Beware that if you have a 2008 or newer (i.e. “Gen2″) KLR 650, this pad does NOT fit the front brakes. I ordered it and it was the incorrect part. To their credit, Amazon refunded the full overnight shipping amount I paid and took the pads back as well, but they have not yet corrected the fitment information. These do NOT fit 2008+ KLR650.
