Finding brake pads should be easy right! But I keep getting the wrong pads sent to me.
I just want a set for the front and rear.
EBC seems to be the pad of choice but anything that's works is fine with me.
Where to order them?
The number to identify them?
A 2002-2009 K1200LT with original factory FRONT Calipers should have a large "BMW" marking on the outside and a small "Tockico" marking on the inside (hidden). The changeover of parts and design was after FEB-2001 production and also matches the intro of the IABS modulator with noisy servos.
Based on fact you have a 2002, I cannot see who could not supply you with correct parts: in my mind, it is NOT rocket-science to ask customer for either of all questions:
1) do you see BMW markings outside of front calipers
2) do you have the noisy brake modulator with electrical servos
3) what is the production month-year of your bike (marked on VIN plate under seat)
Your front calipers should look like attached composite photo.
See this page for a good after market vendor of BMW parts (BeemerBoneyard) that will serve you well at competitive prices.
The TOP 2 items on this page are 2 choices of after market FRONT brake pads (EBC or Carbon-Lorraine):
K1200LT (From 2/01)
For the REAR caliper, they sell only Carbon-Lorraine from what I can see here:
A lot more affordable than the OEM pads from BMW ($US$ 38 versus $82).
NOTE: You may also find some after-market vendors who sells the SBS brand.
