Rear brake pads

Looking for information on rear brake pads for the LT.

Ordered a set from Pirates' Lair. They list 2987 for 99-05 and the 2900 for 06 and up. Also, don't understand why they have a change at 06 when the change (in the US) was 05.

BMW shows the same part number for all years and Beemer boneyard lists the 2987 for all years.

Trying to confirm that Pirates' Lair (actually the Spiegler catalog) lists the wrong part number.

Re: Rear brake pads

Thanks Gary. I shouldn't be concerned that the picture isn't like what is on my bike should I? They do confirm fitment.

I attempted to argue my case with Spieger that Beemer Bone Yard, who they supply, only lists the 2987 for ALL years. Dave did say that they may know something they don't but wouldn't budge off it being my fault. I went with Pirates' Lair because they didn't charge $15 to ship a part that would go into a $5.95 flat rate USPS box - they offered free shipping. Now I'm having to pay $5.95 to return them and an additional $15 to get them replaced.

I may be $$ ahead to order these and sell the 2900rx to a RS rider.
