Personal Experience with Ferodo Brake Pads

Ferodo Brake Pads
Honda NC750X Ferodo Brake Pads

I own a Honda NC750X Motorcycle since new, after a short period of time I found that I needed to replace the rear disc pads, I did so, but not with Ferodo but a lesser known brand out of Korea, not knowing that these Brake Pads were available in the Ferodo brand.

Needless to say the replacement Rear Brake Pads wore down even faster than the original ones and were exceptionally noisy.

Then I learned that my local Motorcycle Auto Parts Center had the Brake Pads for my Honda in stock, I jumped at the opportunity and promptly fitted Ferodo replacements to my Honda NC750X, they are still in there at the time of this article 8 months down the line, and looks like it will last 8 more. this episode served to cement my faith in the Ferodo Brake Pad brand.

Final Opinion

As one of the most important components on a vehicle, Ferodo Quality Brake Pads is one that I will not compromise on, either for my own vehicles or those of my customers.

I independently tested Ferodo Brake Pads over a period of 2 years and I was nothing but impressed with it’s performance. Ferodo remains one of my trusted brands. I warn against counterfeit Ferodo Disc Pads, look out for damaged  #“Priospot” Labeling when purchasing.

  1. Gary,

    We all know the importance of safety when we operate our vehicles, and having a top quality braking system is worth every penny. If nothing else, for peace of mind. This is a great review and I liked your comparison to the lesser brand, it is a good way to show the Quality offered by Ferodo. I will certainly be looking into this when mine are due for replacement. thanks for the information.

  3. Hi Gary

    This is really a very good review of the Ferodo brake pads and what struck me was that they are going green with the brake pad linings. That is a big plus for them. You highlighted their quality workmanship and the quality and safety of the brake pads very good in this review. They are also cost-effective because they last longer. I will insist for Ferodo brake pads next time my car goes for its service.
    Thank you for this very effective review.
