What brake pads do you use?

Is there a good quality brake pad I can trust that's cheaper than OEM? I'm burning through brake pads really fast.

I think most just buy them through sites like Rocky Mountain ATV, is there a reason why your pads are going so fast, I've never had to change a set?

Are they just squeaking or are they worn down to the metal?

Lots of mud and water. Maybe it's normal, but it seems way too fast. They are rode hard and put away dirty. I'm going to try a set of brass pads as well as EBCs to compare. I've got a few of these machines. There's no warning when the pads are gone, well, unless the pistons are grinding and brake fluid is leaking out lol. Then of course the rotors are toast as well. But luckily it didn't get that bad this time around. The rotors have some small grooves. Can I get them turned or hit them with a grinder/sandpaper to get me smooth again?
