I was thinking of changing my brakes this weekend and was wondering if there was a local place to get the pads. I thought that some one had mentioned that they had bought some pads at Napa. I tried to search but no luck. Also, what is the deal with the brass break pads? How do you make them?

I haven't heard of any local shops aside from the dealership ($$). I got mine from Rocky Mountain ATV and got them in no time flat...something like 2 days.

Your not going to find them local except at a AC dealer. Or maybe a big aftermarket atv parts shop.

Epi makes some they are about 32.00 per pair. They claim heavy duty sintered metal pad recommended for mud sand and utility use. I have not replaced my stock pads but I will most likely buy these when I do. Hope this helps. might can find them at erlandsonperformance.com

Funny story about brakes. I took my bike to ODB to get the gears and he calls me and says "these are the worst brakes I have ever seen it is a wonder how you have been able to stop." He said they were paper thin if that. OOPS. I guess I could of checked them. I did not think I used my brakes that much but I guess I do.

AC pads wear fast it seems, replaced my 03 400 at 360 miles they were 2/3rds gone, aux pads were all gone. 32.00 isnt bad for upgraded pads, stockers a 26.00 a pair.

EBC makes pads for the AC. Much cheaper. Go to you local motorcycle shop; they will probably have to order them.

I agree with Frontiercat, get the EBC severe duty's.

The standby pads are slightly different than the other 3 sets so will have a different part no. Take the rear tire off, the aux brake pads may not need to be replaced mine were ok the rest were paper thin. I just installed the EBC severe duty.
I kept my used pads as well thinking I may try the brass route when I can get the material.

I run the EBC's. I put 2200 km's on the stock pads. I have 1300 on the EBC's so far and they seem to be half way through. I don't think that I use brakes very heavy at all. Just to give you an idea. My foot brake pads are the originals and there are about the same as the EBC's right now.

I think the severe duty might have less stopping power but will hold up better to mud and sand. I’m no expert but that’s what I have heard. I am still looking for info and reviews on both pads because I will be ordering mine today.
