You're probably not gonna find cheaper than $30 a side, unless you get lucky on eBay . Beware that there is a left and a right set for the 79-81 specials (not midnight). Dennis Kirk got 'em for $31 a side. Left P/N 19-755, right P/N 19-734.

My 80 special cost me $31 for the left and $29 for the right. The dealer actually discounted them because the were in the stock room forever.

Price sounds right

I think these fit all the rear brakes on XS's?

http://cgi.ebay.com/Yamaha-XS1100-XS...item5ad750f599

And this is the front for the special?

http://cgi.ebay.com/Yamaha-XS1100-XS...item5ad750f57c

Not sure if these are right, but I picked up all 3 sets for my std for $40. I have used thier fork seals on a couple of bikes and had no trouble with them, although they use a different style dust cap that stock on the XS.

I run parts n more pads on my standard, and they work fine. Wherever you decide to get them, I would stick with non-asbestos organic pads. There's another kind that have metal in them, and they're hard on rotors. They're called sintered pads IIRC, and TC specifically recommends against them.

I bought these pads from a member and have nothing bad to say about them. They stop well and do not make any noise. IDK if they fit your year bike though...

Those are the sintered variety. Sure they'll stop your bike. Watch what they do to your rotors.

We're about to find out. Another memeber said those pads are no match for our rotors and they are the toughest he's seen... I guess if they get ruined I will have a good excuse to do an upgraded break mod. Our manual actually calles for sintered pads in the rear IIRC... Im only using them on the rear right now, not the front.

ive been using sintered pads for years,
and have never had any problems with the
rotors wearing.
they stop really well whether the brakes are warmed
up or not.

fyi, all auto disc brake pads and shoes have been asbestos free for many
years.

I'm using pads from Mike XS650 and they're just fine. I think they were around $20 a set but I'm too lazy to look at the moment.

I agree, no noticable difference between cold pads or hot and no noticable adverse wear. Besides, these are copper sintered pads not the iron ones. The copper ones should be way more forgiving then the iron ones...
