Ebc brake rotors

I'm looking to upgrade my brakes it's time to change the brakes on my 2007 Harley. I found a great deal on ebc slotted and vented rotors with hawk pads. My question is I heard they will make noise is this true because the truck is heavy? I am going to do towing with my mustang to the the track and I do a lot of driving and want good stopping power with the obvious good looks with the 22' wheels any advice would be greatly appreciated thanks

In the past i haven't had much more then maybe a whoosh or a whistle under heavy braking. It's the brake gases escaping.

Under normal use/ load not much different, just a little more grabby/ touchy. Which is a lot better feeling then mushy.

I just threw some cross drilled and slotted rotors on with the best raybestos pads. All quiet and smooth. Much stickier feeling on the vancouver island highway. Aka 'rotor destroyer'

I would like to upgrade the callipers and rotors on my truck this summer. Been researching parts for a while now . To be honest it getting a little confusing . So many variables . I really need to get some sound advice on a complete kit .

If you find the secret recipe for less then 3k share. I might be interested in your stockers if you do pull the plug on upgraded calipers.

So far the recipe is just under 5k fronts only ... not going to happen.

I would recommend looking at Carbotech Performance Brakes #1521 HP Street pads for your 2007 Harley. Been using them on all 4 corners on my /06 Screw for a few yrs. now with great success. No noise, nearly zero brake dust (even after heavy braking), and rotor friendly. Last 2-3 longer than OEM pads. Greatly improved brake modulation over what you have now, I'll tell you.

At the moment I'm running Xtreme Stop drilled and slotted rotors both F & R.

BTW, Ford only improved the brake performance on the /09 models by 10% (big wup IMHO)

Just remember... if you go with a greater sized brake kit, it will limit you as to what rim sizes you can run with, trust me... I've looked into this...

Press on regardless!
