Fwd: 98/99 and 2000 Triumph Thunderbird Sport
- Aloha Everyone, Got an interesting reply from US EBC about brake pads. I am
off on a trip for a week and won't have a chance to compare my old pads to
verify this. It looks as though my dealer just installed a close match on the
rear on the first go round by using the FA142 pads.
