Not sure if anyone has seen this but you might change your mind on the type of pad you actually want depending on your riding style! For the record though I agree 100% with the brands!

FWIW I've had EBC brake pads warp twice on me. I would recommend CL XBK pads, OEM performance at a lower price.

When you have your pads out take the calipers off and give them a decent cleaning too. Get all of the brake dust dirt and grim off the pistons.

I use the NGK's and EBC HH's as well.

The service manual even says NGK CR9E: NGK (6263) CR9E Standard Spark Plug

Here are the brake pads I use (you'll need 2 sets for the front): EBC Brakes FA417/4HH Disc Brake Pad Set
