They used to be hard to find here ... do you have a link for them now?

I used them on my Triumph Tiger 955i (I've owned 3 Tigers) that I bought in UK over a decade OK. The shop I went to in France used Vesrah pads. They did a service on my Tiger: Tires, oil/filter, pad, chain/sprockets.

I thought the Vesrah pads were fine, lasted nearly 20k miles riding round UK, France, Spain, Germany, Italy, Portugal and Morocco. The rear pads did wear out at 15K, had to replace them.

Naturally, they're harder to find for this bike. Looks like you can order them for about $35 on eBay from Europe.

MotoSport shows they carry Vesrah pads but don't stock for Hyper.
But since they are a Vesrah dealer they could probably order them.

But sounds like getting them direct from eBay Europe is the way to go.
Good news is my stock pads look like new ... so far!

Funny enough I'm running EBC's in my hyper, but their cruiser semi-metallic pads. I found the hyper brakes way too grabby for such a long travel tall bike and the new pads are more progressive. They call them V-Pads.

Are yours grabby right away? I found, and based in using the internets I think this is by design) that the first time I get on the front brake the lever feel is a bit soft and the engagement is more progressive, but if I double tap the front brake the second squeeze has a MUCH firmer feel at the lever and the brakes grab hard.

Personally I'd prefer consistency over these two different modes but I've dealt with it as it's pretty rare aside from traffic or maneuvering to park that I need to apply and release the brakes in quick succession.

Yeah, the infamous double pump. I have that too. I was referring to the brake pad grabbiness above, but I know exactly what you're talking about.

Not sure there is any true fix. Bleeding the master cylinder does seem to help. Bleeding the crossover brake line seemed to help (by raising the left caliper and bleeding it). I've just gotten used to it, but it's definitely strange.

I complained about the double pump to two different dealers, and in each case the reply was, “Yeah, that's pretty much how that bike is going to be.”

My dealer laughed in my face and said something along the lines of "Pfft it's fine, perfectly normal!" as he dramatically pulled the lever 15-20 times. I don't remember exactly as I was fuming too hard.

I figured as much. I found discussion about replacing the master cylinder but at this point I'm more or less used to it.
