    i am going to replace for Brembo
    this part number Product code: 07SU27.SA is for road use

    https://moto.brembo.com/en/detail/07SU27/kawasaki/ninja-sx/1000/2020/pads/front/SA/0

    this part number Product code: 07SU27.SR is for race use

    https://moto.brembo.com/en/detail/07SU27/kawasaki/ninja-sx/1000/2020/pads/front/SR/0

    there is some price difference but negligible.
    i am using the bike 50% for commuting ( fast) and 50% for canyon very fast rides

    what would you choose?

    The extra bite you will get will not outway the linear performance and longevity the SAs will give you IMO  :027:

    Interesting post.

    I’ve found the brakes on my 2020 Ninja1000SX a little lacking, just hasn’t got the initial bite I was used to with my Speedtriple.

    Perhaps a change of pad to something like these might help….

    Doesn't the speed triple have steel braided hoses as standard? I think it's a larger master cylinder as well. It's certainly more of a sports bike set than on the SX.

    I can't comment re the speedtriples brakes, but cannot imagine wanting more braking on the Ninja SX. I've had to do a couple of full on emergeny stops where the rear wheel has left the ground, all the while retaining confidence in the front and without the ABS kicking in.

    I do understand there will be differences in feel to the braking with different pads and that is great as it gives us choice.  :028:

    It is not about lack of stopping power or even feel, i had 2016 model and at first pads change switched to brembo, the difference was mainly when had to brake repeatedly and hard, while entering corners on a long very fast twisty  down hill.   I agree that for 95% the stock pads are 100% fine and for the last 5% they are 95% fine, just want 100% all the time.

    Yeah agree not comparing apples with apples as the Speedtriple is a more sporty bike. It has Brembo M4.32 callipers and steel braided hoses and is quite a bit lighter too, so braking isn’t going to quite the same.

    The Ninja’s setup seems fine but is probably the most noticeable dynamic difference to me when riding. I wouldn’t say I ride the bike hard enough for it to be an issue, it just a feel thing. If changing the pads and maybe the lines would address some of the difference, then I’d be a (slightly) happier boy 😁

    I have Brembo SA pads on my 2017 sx and have been using them for years.  I like them obviously.  I changed the lines on my previous SX for braided hoses and it made a noticeable difference IMHO.  I will be changing for braided hoses on this one in the not too distant future.
