2015 650 brake pad part numbers?

I purchased this set of pads for the rear: http://www.amazon.com/EBC-Brakes-FA1...D3WAXGDGXFGGP7

EBC FA192HH as I read these were for the rear of the 650, 08-whenever. These don't fit my 2015. My rear caliper has an 8mm bolt that goes through the ring of both rear pads, looks like the front pads almost.

Where are the part numbers for this specific bike? I've spent so many hours trying to figure out what goes where when there's no info, I hate posting a question every time I need some little thing.

What other bikes use the same exact parts? It's been exceptionally hard to find parts or proper information for the Versys and Ninja 650s. I guess I'm looking and googling the wrong thing.

Kawasaki part # 43082-0151 for rear brake pads is exclusive to 2015+ Versys 650... They are however the same as used on 2006-2014 Yamaha YZF-R1.

Thanks for the parts! Where did you find that info?

These don't fit my 2015. The ends have a taller rear notch (2 posts with an empty space in the middle). This prevents the front from raising up high enough for the bolt to clear. I'm going to try and grind it down an 1/8" but there isn't much to work with.

That's strange... Vesrah pad listed for 2015 Versys 650 is in fact the same as yours as shown in diagram, and it's also listed for Yamaha R1.

My pads look a little different from the EBC photo (They are marked FA174HH and has correct packaging), but you can see the difference between those and the pic you posted, the EBC has a taller tab.

At least it fits now.

You mean yours are like my 1st photo in this thread of the EBC FA174HH pads... Vesrah VD-147JL pads listed for your 2015 Versys 650 do have the proper dimensions, as seen in the Vesrah pads photo you just quoted me about.

Yeah, it looks like the Vesrah would work perfectly fine, but you can see in the EBC photo that that tab is much taller (located more towards the bottom of the pad).

The EBC pads also have a U shaped tab rather than a solid tab like the Vesrah.

I haven't bedded them in, will do tomorrow, but the first ride was fine and my ABS didn't kick on like it usually does. I hear a lot of rotor grind as usual with new pads.
