To prevent your new brake pads from squealing, ceramic paste is used for sintered brake pads and vehicles with ABS Always make sure that no paste comes into contact with the pad(s)! A more effective and cleaner alternative to copper or ceramic paste is anti-squeal film (Order no. 10004371), which you stick to the reverse of the brake pad. It is suitable for braking systems with or without ABS and for both sintered and organic pads.
Follow the safety instructions printed on the packaging and the motorcycle manufacturer's specifications. Installing incompatible brake pads may cause serious damage to your motorcycle. You should have your new brake pads installed by a professional if you do not have the necessary knowledge for the job.
Please note: Sintered metal brake pads can be used with all steel brake discs. If your bike has cast iron brake discs, you should follow the manufacturer's instructions and the TÜV test certificate or type approval.
Good to know:
Sintering is a special production process, in which up to 15 different metals in powder form are compacted by applying heat (up to 1000°C) and pressure. The result is a very strong pad and a virtually inseparable bond to the backing plate.

The German "Allgemeine Betriebserlaubnis (ABE)" (general type approval) authorises the use of the relevant accessories on the vehicle models listed in the certificate booklet. The certificate booklet must be carried along when driving and must be presented on request in the event of a traffic control or the main inspection (HU).
Accessories with an ABE do not have to be registered in the vehicle documents. However, if you do not want to carry the certificate with you at all times, you can have it registered (at a charge) by the TÜV, for example.
If the accessories are to be used on a vehicle that is not listed in the ABE, an individual approval is necessary.
