Default OEM Brake Pad Question

Can somebody verify the difference between the front pads and the rear pads. What I pulled out of the front, looks different than what was sent. Could the manufacturer have part marked it wrong?

I already replaced the rear pads and the old ones looked identical to what came out.

See pics...

Okay so now I realize I put the back plate on the wrong way, and that's why it doesn't look right in the pic. But I am confused by what was sent to me; 2 of the 02's and 1 set of the 01's.

Thanks for any help!

Dan

Do not let the last three numbers confuse you (G01,G02).
Those indicate any design or process modifications.
Originally these would have carried a G00 last three.
01 would indicate some change or modification occurred, 02 would be another.
These numbers are always on the move and each change will automatically superseded the previous when ordered.

Your order details are correct.

I knew you would be along shortly to answer that question. Thanks for educating all of us. Again.

I believe there is a difference in thickness between front and rear (when new). Can't remember which way around. So if you can't get the calipers to open wide enough to fit the pads around the disk, use the other partnumber.

There is one area where the last three numbers that have lettering attached are critical and real caution must be employed.
The numbers will show any change process but it is the Letters that need close look.
They are the color code for that particular part.
Make sure you are ordering for you exact year model.

Yes, the two rear pads are thicker then the four front pads. Just changed pads again(Honda OEM) on my '03 with 90,000 miles. I believe this is because with linked brakes you are using the rear at all times.

With Honda's Linked Brake System, or Combined Brake System in Europe, You get all the brakes all the time the bike is in forward motion.
The Secondary Master Cylinder only works if the bike is moving forward.

I did some test once , a couple of Years ago . . . It was to fit some partially wear front pads in the back and all I had to do is to simply modified tabs of the front pads , in order to fit them in the back . But , I came to this conclusion . . . it work but , it is better to use only brand new OEM pads in the position they are made for .

I never posted on about those test because I was too afraid of Paul reaction . . .
