Brake Pads
« on: March 10, 2018, 04:27:44 pm »
Just wanted to confirm that OEM Front pad Assembly - 43082-0112 (2 EA) is  the latest, recommended part number for my 2009.
-0071 is the original equipment. the -0112 was the 2010 part number and the newer ones are -0122.  Haven't read anything about using the -0122 on my gen I.

The parts diagram shows 43082-0071 for the 2009 ABS or not.  While I think the later years' pads are essentially the same, I'm sure there is some difference, possibly pad material.

The caliper is the same PN: 43080-0046-DJ

I think it is posted in another brake pad discussion that the new {2 gen} pads will fit all C-14's.

The newer pads a a little different and addressed the problem of leaving deposits on the rotors. IIRC

And the EBC's the Spokane Kawasaki shop put on the front of mine doesn't leave deposits either. A little squeaky at times but every bit as good as the OEM brakes.

I appreciate the inputs, but really wanted to know if a) the newest oem Kawasaki brake pads would fit (I had read that the the 2010 part number would work but have nothing about the 3rd part number). b) if the 3rd part number would fit, would it be better?  If so, why? 

I've read about the differences between the first two part numbers and think that I'd go for the 2010 part number due to less brake dust. I also appreciated the comments about aftermarket pads but want to go with the OEM, this time.


Any comments comparing the 3rd part number with any of the other two.

This thread especially Mob's reply shed some light, but didn't positively confirm fit.

I have the EBCs too.

I missed this before....Since the caliper's are the same part numbers between the years, the pads should fit.  Thanks! JWH.

I like the OEM fronts because there is one, independent pad per piston, 4pcs per caliper
