You will get a few opinions on this,I had factory A/C on the front 2000 miles on them still had pad left they squeaked really bad at 1500 miles I had EBC on the rear they were good brakes,I converted to 4-wheel disc put A/C pads on the rear squeaked from day one,I just bought Brakes from Evolution powersports they make pads for the prowler and wild cat.........no noise at all 86 dollars for all 4-wheels.:)

I bought some cheap "Severe Duty Sintered" on ebay that were junk and fell apart within a year. I was out riding and thought I had a rock stuck in one turned out it was metal to metal. I went back with stock ones.

I always used EBC severe duty brake pads for my quad and they really held up well. Dunno if that company is still in business or if they offer AC brake pads.

I was looking on ebay & several offer kevlar pads, but they have 6 pads for a complete set. Wouldn't I need 8 pads to do all 4 wheels?

Yes if yours has the 4 wheel braking, older models like mine only have 3 brakes 2 on front and one rear on the driveline. I believe they all use the same size pad.

My 2012 700 HDX came from the factory with 4 wheel disc brakes. AC gets 45 bucks a wheel for pads, and my originals are bad at 580 miles.

2012 xtz came with 4 dics, then 2013 hdx got them. Maybe you have a late 2012 - early 2013?

DAMN Man get your foot off the brakes and let it roll :) , you may want to check out your rig, that is not normal wear !!

BTW the 2009 XTZ has 4 wheel also and assume they all do as the 2009 was the first year.

That wear does seem excessive.

They have always squealed but upon inspection they are very thin. I bought this from a farmer who drove it thru a lot of mud & corn stalks.
