I have a 2004 Polaris 700 Twin. Finally time to do some brakes and I am curious as to what people have found as to OEM vs polaris parts. There seems to be a big price discrepancy between OEM and aftermarket. I dont need anything heavy duty.. Thanks

I run the EBC severe duty pads and they last better than stock. I ride only mud/water, so no matter what I use they wear out quick.

EBC Copper on all 4 of my bikes (all different types of riding) and no complaints. The copper mix of the pads, doesn't seem to wear the rotors as quickly either.

My buddy just disintegrated his pads and blew his calipers on his Can Am and is getting the brand Race Driven(?) pads, any one have experience with those? I see my pads are running thin so I better change my pads before I have the same issue as him. I will look into the EBC too, where online do you guys recommend buying them from?

i get mine from race driven. I change them every year now, ever since ive blown out the rear caliper on my old sp800 and had to ride to pretty treacherous terrain 10 miles back to the truck with no brakes.
