I just threw some Axxis Ultimates on mine a couple weeks ago. They bite a lot harder than my EBC Greens for half the price. I don't know about dusting or rotor wear yet. :?

ya the yellows are a little soft till warm.
but not as bad as the blues.
and the yellows tend to eat rotors.
for a budget mined person bendix is a good alt.

i just wish that they made the HH sintered pads for cars.
thats what i run on my bike. and they are by far the most heat resistant pad i have used. you can be running 175mph and hit the brakes and hold them hard. and they will not fade whatsoever. i did the same thing on stock pads. running 145 and at about 60 the started to fade. and i got scared.
once i slowed down to about 20 all i could smell was burnt pad. and
rainbow rotors- btw you dont know expensive rotors till you buy em for a bike. 289.98 for ONE STOCK ROTOR
