When I purchased my rig (Goldwing & Champion Escort) it came with four extra sets of Bembo brake pads for the chair's caliper. I am on my last set of pads and need to look for new ones. About a month ago I had done internet searches and found two different sites that listed the pads as in stock. This week they are all out of stock or no longer carry these pads. The pads and matching caliper are no longer made by Bembo. I need a source of new pads, or find a new, current caliper that will install on the swing arm that will have new pads available. I can take the rig to DMC, but I would like to do this myself, as it doesn't look to complicated to switch.
The old caliper is a Brembo FREND 222, 07.3132.30, and I think the pad numbers are P32F FrenDo 222.

Attached are some photos of the current caliper and pads.

The brake manufacturer EBC has an INCREDIBLE catalog. Their website is www.ebcbrakes.com. Choose motorcycle from the menu bar then click on the US catalog. Starting at page 354 they have an illustrated listing of motorcycle brake pads. you can go there and find a match for your pads. THIS IS A BIG CATALOG and takes a while to open. Good luck.

Al,
Thank you for the EBC tip of the EBC catalog. It took looking at a lot of brake pads, but I found a set that appears to have the same dimensions I am looking for. Since it listed the fitment of the brakes I was able to search and found a set at Dennis Kirk. Should arrive by Friday and I will confirm if they fit. If so I will order a few more sets. If anyone is curious, the part number is FA115, page 243 of the EBC catalog. The fitment is for several bikes.
