I am still interested in knowing if these break pads make any noise when wet, like the default ones do (at least on mine).

Do they still squeak like the original ones? If there's no noise I'm up for buying some of these.

@ghampi Definitely pretty crap because these pads are considered to be quite crap on the Chinese market as well.

They must be popular! Out of stock. Also seconding if anyone knows the number for/if they make rear pads. i got myself some new drilled rotors I would like to put on when I have some new pads. I've found a supplier that has the normal ones and a "premium" option on Taobao, but it would be nice to find something closer.

@sdreaver where did you get your drilled rotors from? Can you give me a link, please?

I got them from Taobao. They don't ship to Germany so I had to use an agent for forwarding. But I think this made the process a little easier. I found a few other items that they repacked into one shipment for me. I used Superbuy and they offer free inspection and all with tons of shipping options and ways to avoid being held up in customs. (The link I attached from them is a referral link. Why not? If you don't want to go through that, you can also just google taobao shopping agents.)
I also picked up some clubman bars and random accessories.

@sdreaver Thanks for that referral link, I will use it!

How much did it cost you in the end? I see they say the price can change after you place the order and it's currently around 30$.

Was it a lot more than that?

I tried to register to taobao but I never get a SMS or call to verify, they keep saying network error. But I think that SuperBuy doesn't require you to have an account on Taobao (I hope).

That's exactly why I used the agent, aside from just parcel forwarding. I wasn't able to finish the registration for taobao either. Looking at the order I had there, there were handlebars, rear shock, front + rear rotor, leather motorcycle gloves, reflective stickers (they sent an extra set, for some reason?) for the rims (soco logos/branding), and a front windshield. I wanna say I paid closer to 100 for the shipping. I chose a shipping method that was more guaranteed to not hit customs or extra taxes, which was a big concern of mine but there are cheaper options that reviews seem to indicate are reliable. My simple mind applying simple math felt like this was then about 20 per item for shipping so my total for the rotors would be 50. Less than the 70-75 Eur I've seen available at outdoordreams or one of those sites. 
The pricing quote for shipping I got was originally around 60 Yuan more than what it ended up costing. I think you only get this back in credits and not actual money. I just applied it to my next order. If you pay 20 yuan for the demo pack, they "practice" and will tell you what the actual total is. I did this for my second as I got plastic panels and the initial estimate was crazy high based on volumetric shipping, but they're quite good at packing it all up and saving space.

You'll get better search results by just typing "SOCO" in taobao and copy/paste the link to superbuy than using superbuy's search service. I can find the rear shock I ordered, if you're looking for one. I'm not sure if it's the best, but it was the best deal on the Vopo adjustable one I found.
