EBC are high dollar. Just go on ebay and get some "sintered' brake pads. Two sets for the front for around 30 bucks delivered to your front door. They will still wear out in the mud fairly quick but it will wont be so hard on your pocket book.

Last set of ebc pads I bought were the severe duty and they are still going strong and yes they are very expensive but well worth it. Did you see if there is a warranty on them?

I bought a set of Ebc Sintered Metal brake pads from ebay fro about $20 shipped... They only lasted 100 miles on my brute and I don't even go above the floorboards at the very bottom I too have been pondering this question for some time, but the mud/sand around here will eat any brake pads.

EBC severe duties seem to be about the best "production" brake pads for use in mud/water. - The homemade/Turner Cycles solid brass pads last the longest in mud/water, but don't stop as well as a regular compounded pad.

I remember back in the day buying pads for the Polaris. The HD pads were cheaper than the regular pads and of course lasted 2 or 3 times as long. So I always bought them.

Now that was Polaris brand parts but....
