Confused about which brake pads I need

I have a 2001 LT. The calipers read 'Brembo' and NOT 'BMW'.

This means I have the 'old' style? I want to make sure I get the right ones.

Would the pads for a 99 or 2000 fit what appears to be an 'early' 2001?

Any advice fellas? Thanks in advance.

You are correct. You have the good ones if they say Brembo. ABSII, non linked. They will still be effective at breaking if you lose the ABS.

Check your build date on the plate under the seat anything built prior to 01/2001 is an ABS II bike with Brembo calipers on the front.
