That makes me question the stiffness of the backplates they use. Also, the wear pad sensor groove was filled with adhesive on the rears, so I couldn't attach the sensor, and cable tied it to the suspension, and then lost the little tensioner clip on the sensor due vibration. Guess what, they won't sell you just the tensioner clip. Annoying. I'm switching to RS19s.
You will like the RS19's....the performance and wear is outstanding.

The sound, that is also outstanding on the streets. lol But it is worth it!
