Jurid like Pagid dust like crazy and I am guessing that what he got were PBR Axxis (use to be REPCO). These are great pads, come in deluxe (organic) or Metal Master (semi-metallic). I use them on my 1988 750 and I love them (plus, no dust). And if you have cross drilled rotors, as previously stated, good for profiling bad for pad life.
