    I've tried several after market brands. None of them work as well as stock Yamaha.

    I just checked to see what I used, Yamaha oem. I also have a question. Are the front and back brake drum pads the same? I know on a car these are brake shoes. I changed the back pads once and the front ones never. The only issue I had with the drum brakes was that they would stick when it was damp out and would grab until the moisture was gone. I put a small dab of antiseize on all the pivot points and I never had another issue.

    The brakes on my 93 TW would stick and I would have to put my toe under the pedal and lift to release them.
    I put new shoes on and twas okay for another year then same thing. The problem was the drum was worn to a bigger diameter
    And I had to get a new hub to fix the problem. High milage TW owners take note.

    I agree and that goes for most parts except steering head bearings, chain and that front tire of course.

    Thanks, the back brakes were sticking a little, the bike just turned 30,000km last month. I will add antiseize on all the pivot points and switch back to OEM on my next set.
