Try searching here or over at www.slingshotforums.com for Honda brake pads. IIRC, someone has posted that certain Honda pads can be used once a tab is broken/ground off. Or you have the option of Hawk pads available from the major Slingshot marketer sellers.

thanks BKL...yes I have the hawk pads and ebc makes the rotors but I have a caliper possibly sticking...the inside of right rotor is wearing prematurely ...so either replace caliper....rebuild...or take apart and clean and re-grease...if I take apart would be nice to have a kit to put in....if you come up with anything let me know....thanks

OEM calipers are custom Chinese, as far as I'm aware (and the OEM ones I've seen are pretty low quality).

StopTech makes a big brake kit to replace the front calipers, rotors, and pads. They look awesome.

DDMWorks sells a Wilwood kit that replaces both the front and back end.

Try to not get air in the lines--getting it out of the master cylinder is a project-and-a-half.

My bad. I should have done a better job reading what was posted!
EBay lists several used front right brake calipers that include Make Offer.
