Yes you need to swap from the Hayes pa to the Galfer.JimboCO said:...is it necessary? I just got Galfer pads that do not have the spring/clip. I'm guessing removing the old clips and putting them on the Galfers would be prudent? How come Galfer doesn't include them?
are the galfers better? my hayes sintered pads fade all the time. my brakes need a rest before i do. I need more power. i like to go slow on steep long hills.XSL_WiLL said:Take them off the old pads and put them on the Galfers. Most replacements don't seem to include them.
Pimpalicous post some pic's :thumbsup::thumbsup:JimboCO said:Thanks guys, they're going on tonight as the finishing touch on a Galfer rotor/Goodridge line/Dangerboy upgrade.
Slow on steep long hills is going to over heat anything, need to work on braking tecknic, on off with the lever. Yes the Galfers in my meager mind are awsome especially with their rotors.GIG EM said:are the galfers better? my hayes sintered pads fade all the time. my brakes need a rest before i do.

call me an old maid but I try to keep the bike under 35 MPH. yeah yeah I strobe front and rear.XSL_WiLL said:Here's a more blunt way of putting dogonfr's advice. Don't brake like a soccermom. It's a speedcheck, not a crutch. Brake in intervals, don't just squeeze the lever the entire way down.
so, I've got hayes V8 rotors they got cut outs on the edge. what do you think? will the Galfers draw more air with the waves? do you got anything on the magura disks with the Alu spider. they claim better cooling.... what do you think?XSL_WiLL said:If you go from round rotors to Galfer rotors, they'll help draw cool air through the caliper. This will help cool the system and you'll get less fade. The rotor will also clean the pads. So overall, you'll get better performance.
