I currently own a 2006 Yamaha Raptor 700R. My rear brake pads are worn and need to be replaced. I'm unsure of what type of brake pads to replace the stock ones with. I was wondering if I could put sintered brake pads on the front and rear? I don't race per say, but I drive pretty aggressive, mostly trail riding and hill climbing. Can anyone tell me what the best pads to put on would be and are they easy to change? If anyone has photo instructions, I would really appreciate it.
Thank you.

im in the same situation as you. But one ? does yours have a horrible squealing sound coming from the back. I can spray brake cleaner or what ever back there and it is just horrible. I cant figure out what it is other than i need to replace them. Any suggestions?

My rear brakes are the same. From what I have read the 06 squeals pretty bad. Not sure on what pads to use but if you find some that work let us know because I would like to get that fixed!

I just replaced my pads and realized i was down to bare metal. Never let this happen!! Its not good for the piston that pushes on the cailber its is driven by threads and will mess them up if u let this happen. It happend to me! I went with the carbon pads. Work well for me.
