Honda has traditionally equipped their offroad and Adventure motorcycles with pretty good brake systems, but the 250l and Rally do have some weak spots. The rear brakes on both bikes suffer from improper pad compound in our opinion. This results in an unbalanced amount of force required to achieve proper braking technique. A simple upgrade to our high-quality AP pads quickly resolves the issue. Our AP pads are a little more expensive than other popular pads, but the long life and excellent feel more than make up for the small difference in cost.
