Hey guys I just found the hook up on the new pads for the highlifter disc brake conversion kit you can get them in 2 days or less from jegs for like $50.00 delivered #1-800-345-4545 part#WIL-150-4091K.These are the same pads that it came with and they are the same pad that highlifter sells for double I was searching for pads for mine and I needed them fast so I saw that the calipers were wilwood same as my race car. I went on their website and found them then called wilwood to conferm and they for some how have lasted longer?Here they are from summit but they cost more and shipping is longer <a href="http://store.summitracing.com/egnsearch" target="_blank">http://store.summitracing.com/egnsearch ... 4091k&x=29</a>
Wilwood <a href="http://brakepads.wilwood.com/06-illustr" target="_blank">http://brakepads.wilwood.com/06-illustr ... sport.html</a>
Hope this helps ,it saved me money and time.

Thanks for the link. Is that $50 per side, per pad or for a set? Looking at the link I would say that it is a set per side. So l think you would need 2 sets.

I use the EBC heavy duty replacement pads for both mine and the wifes bike. The price has ranged from $40-$50 per bike depending on who I got them from.

I got the wilwood pads for 36$ from a brake supply place in jersey.tho i have yet to ever put them on because the first set is not even close to being worn out even after 2400 miles.

I'll get them when i go to my garage tommorrow.All i can say is that i have totally different part numbers than dirty4man has.....I have been using the same pads since mid '05 and i use my bike ALOT.over 2400 miles since i did put them on.I do run alot of coal mud which is very abrasive and can eat bearings and seals.....we also have ALOT of very large hills unless i don't use my brakes like you guys do i don't know why it would be different.
03'grinnie ....I will have to look which place it was as i did lose my computer back in november and i replaced the HD......My buddy is trying to retireve the info that i did not get back from it so i will do the best i can....They used to send me e-mails all the time so if they send another one i can zip it to you.....B

thanks dude appreciate the help what size tires are you running I have 28" mudzillas.I now am getting 300 miles on the rear pads with the 26" 589s I got 1,200 miles. I am guessing that it's the tires I never had the disc brakes on the front w/ the 589s so I can't tell if 300 miles is normal thanks for the help and thanks for checking on thoes pads.

Still did not get to the garage....I will not forget tho.I am running 25" swamp foxes as i am rarely in mud over the racks....The tires prolly don't help the brake wear but 300 miles does seem awefully fast to wear a set out IMO.

all my buddies that have brute's and grizzly's all ware the brakes out the same and they have 28" tires compaired to stock sized tires the 28" with rims weigh just under 200 pounds so that would be a big difference but however you look at it it sucks for us that don't get the miles out of our pads

yeah sand will kill them.I ride in all coal so i have the extra fine black coal mud silt that for some reason on a sport quad (450r) it will eat a set of pads every 4 rides or so but my rancher has had the same fronts for 2 years now with over 2500 miles or so.....maybe it's a difference in how they are ridden but who knows i won't complain.
Hey also i looked and my pads are the usual severe duty EPI type pads.
