Smile Sportsman Brake Pads

Looking for a set of pads (front and rear) for an 03 Sportsman 500 HO. Does anyone have experience with the Race Driven pads as advertised on this site?? Noticed they were about $35 for a whole set where as Polaris OEM pads from another site were $50 for just the front. Get what you pay for??? Any advice? Thanks.

I may give them a try. For $40 bucks, what the heck. Thanks for the reply.

Keep in mind you will need 2 sets of pads for the front. EBC pads are 2 pads per package. Make sure you order enough.

(Currently I don't own a Polaris but I work on them all the time and get to ride cutomers for test rides. Maybe soon I will be a Polaris owner.)
