I recently replaced the rear brake pads on my 2015 V650. Only about 8k miles on them but the old pads lost their grip. Holy crap the new pads are far better than OEM ever were! When I get the time I'll be replacing the front pads too.
EBC HH sintered pads.
It is a super simple and quick job to replace the pads. While you're at it, lube up the caliper slider pins and flush/bleed the fluid.
I've used EBC HH on a few bikes, good bite in them. Those hanger pins get all kinds of corroded over time. I usually just change the hanger pins when I do the pads since they're around 15 bucks for the front and rear.
