Does anyone know the difference between the front and rear brake pads on a R6 or R1?
Race driven says they are the same front pads but different rear pads.
I think I could put the extra pair front pads I bought for my R6 send to my friends who has a 03 R1, right ?
Let me explain this to you. Let's take the EBC pads as the example, I use their pads on my vehicles and on the Kawi Ninja I used to have.
2006 Yamaha YZF-R1: part # for the front is FA380HH (the rear is FA174HH just in case you need it). Link to the pads.
There are 2 pads options for the 2006 Yamaha YZF-R6, but neither will work on the R1.
R6 with 310 mm rotor: part # is FA174HH (rear, it is the same for the R1, but the front is different).
R6 with 5-bolt disc: part #FA252HH
Hope this helps!
