    Original KTM rear pads lasted 60 hrs. Put apico in and 15 hrs later nothing left.

    I use ebc sintered (copper backing plates) also. Work well, last ages and much cheaper than ktm pads.

    FA368R - Rear
    FA181R - Front
    These fit my bike not sure if yours will be the same though.
    Cost about £32 both sets if memory serves.
