    Trying clicking on the google link in the menu bar at the top and type in "site:forums.bmwmoa.org brake pads r1200rt". I saw quite a few threads to read.

    Go to Beemer Boneyard and check the brake pads that they recommend for your bike. (1150RT?)

    You could also go to a BMW parts fiche - most BMW dealers have one online - and get the BMW part numbers for your brake pads. Put those part numbers into an eBay or Google search (without embedded spaces) and see what you get.

    I'm going to say to buy the appropriate EBC pads in the HH formulation. I have used EBC pads on a lot of BMW bikes and my cars and they have always provided a significant increase in stopping power.

    +1 I have been using EBC HH pads for at least 10 years in our K75s and Oilheads.
