Have a read through this Eddy, hope it helps mate. I would recommend the SC if you go the clappers very often, but even the SA is good if your not doing track days.

Depending on what calipers are fitted on your MV, what Alex recommended are a good brake pad or you might want to try Bendix..

I found Bendix work well on the M4 calipers and are relatively cheap.. If you didn't like them after you tried them out, you've only spent approx 25 for a pair of pads.

Bendix pads tend to feel sharp when used with the M4's and 320mm OEM Brembo discs. Some people prefer a slighly more progressive action.

EBC HH pads are the grippiest ones I've tried. In fact too grippy for my taste. Barely touch the lever with one finger and they grab on.

I really like EBC's, I have had great results with them on both of my scooters.

thanks to all
