hard to say.. i just had them install im gonna give them some break in time before i hit it hard.. but the pedal feels alot smoother than stock ones.. i really like it

i was doing 140 last night and slowing down was amazing.. my stock ones everytime i went over 130 slowing down didnt feel so smooth
hope they stay this way.. but ill wash it tonight and snap some pictures..
