Subject: cheap SBS pads on ebay

My pads were getting a bit thin so after briefly considering Brembo SC's I decided to stay with the SBS RS (race sinters), mainly due to the price of the Brembos, if the price had been comparable I'd probably have given the SC's a go just out of curiositybut the SC's are around £100 plus I can't fault the SBS's so why bother changing just for the sake of it. So after searching about a bit on ebay I've found a seller offering SBS 762RS pads for £58 (both calipers) the more common price is £70-£77, so these are nearly £20 cheaper, the seller is drbikes, the listing is for 762RS which is the race sinter variant for the 4 pad Brembo caliper.
I think they have made a mistake in the listing, which is for something called a TM SMX 450F and not an Aprilia, but a lot of bikes use this particular caliper so it's likely they've mixed the price up with the dual carbon, if you search drbikes shop for 762RS to suit Aprilia or Ducati, MV etc the price jumps to £77 but they are the same part so it looks like they've mis-priced them, so if you're in the market for the some new pads you could do worse then take a look at these.

I did a bit of searching and these are the cheapest I could find, I checked Ducati mondo who are pretty local to me, so I could've collected, but they were £32.58 (per caliper) so drbikes are still a worthwhile saving and included delivery.

I bought those pads from that seller the other day budd. Listed as KTM but I double checked they'd fit ok.

They delivered quickly and were also the cheapest I could find too. Occasionally you hear stories of fakes but they look fine to me. Not fitted them yet though. Got them ready so it's not a last minute panic when I need them.

Sorry TM, not KTM. Just clicked the link and they're now £78.

I was a bit sceptical but they were the correct part number so what the hell if they'd sent me the 762hs or carbon ones I'd have just sent them back, but they sent the desired race sinters so happy days £30 saved, looks like they've corrected the price now as you say all the 762RSs are priced at £78.

Yeah when I bought they had a picture of the carbon ones so I had to confirm first. Shame they bumped the price back up now.
