So i've got hs-33's on the rear of my new bike(xtp), and it just aint happenin'. I've got a 4- bolt booster, light grind, and have tried plaz(no grip in dust) and monty milk(needs a heavy grind) pads. last weekend at fontana, these brakes caused many points and a nice bloody shin. Every thing is set up correctly, brakes have been bled, pads are hitting flat against the rim. Things were so bad, i had to resort to tar to finish the comp.

Any advice guys?

a deep grind or else the grind is not even worth it man, a deep grind and some plaz pads and you will be fine, or koxx bloxx, monty milk pads wear too fast, but you need a deep grid other wise it is just not worth it.
i run no booster on my zoo, plaz and a nice grind and i have no problems!

I agree with pav, but just want to add that the koxx bloxx will perform very well with a deep grind, but if you can't get a deep grind your best bet is probably the plazmatic CRM pads. All will work best with a deep grind though.

Paul, just out of curiosity, are you Paul Bray? The guy with the custom steel mod that was at nationals in Durango?

yo paul.....what's up with that. Drop me a line and I'll get you some Koxx bloxx. Are ya sure you're grinding the rim right? A four bolt booster on an XTP with a good grind could stop a train.

Yeah i met a lot of you guys at the durango event. Good times :bigthumb:
I can't wait to comeback to the CO.
I just grinded the hell out out of my rim today before going for a natty ride in the rain, and it was a big improvement. I guess i just had to grind it harsher. I'll post some pics of the bike later this week( and the brake area sans tire)
