why don't you call your local garage to see what's the price. Also, cheap doesn't necessary means good. Honda genuine parts should be more costlier then the local ones!

Why compromise on brake pads quality??? I would go for the company ones price notwithstanding!

Dude,I got genuine OHC brake pads for 2.6k from Khan market,delhi.
And if you push your CT really hard,dont go in for the cheaper one's.

My car has done 99k,ive changed the brake pads thrice!

There could be better alternatives,but since i couldnt find any here in delhi,i opted for the honda one's.


P.S-if u have driven on worn out pads,get the brake discs scraped with sand paper!

Default Ikon's Brake-pads!

I got a new set of OE brakepads for my ikon.

They cost me just 850 bucks.

Honda consumables are quite expensive.

got my ohc s for 1200 bucks including labour. but braking isn't the best, my struts are gone as well, maybe i could blame the bad braking to the worn out struts.
