Hey fellas,
I've been running out of my front brake pads on my stock caliper, so i searched ebay for new ones
Now i have 4pcs brembo pads, like these.
But most of the sellers offer another types, and i don't sure if they'll fit.. And if this type is compatible, i assume i'll need to remove the whole caliper to install the pads.
Thanks

If I were you I'd email the seller to confirm the two piece pads will fit. But the ad specifically says for a 2008 KTM 690, so they should fit.

If my memory is accurate, you will need to disassemble the caliper to install the two pads (vs OEM 4 pad design). I seem to remember that the caliper has some metal in the way which would prevent you from installing the two pad design.

Don't be worried about taking the caliper apart. I ripped my bike apart last year to have it powder coated, and I was a bit concerned with re-assembling the calipers. That turned out to be one of the easiest parts of putting my bike back together.

Thanks,
I checked the compatibility on manufacturers site by part number, and some of them actually don't fit.

Hi guys
If anyone's in need of new front brake pads and aren't happy with the squeaky stock Toshiba pads, I just put some Brembo pads in my 2010 690SMC. Brembo pads are tricky to find Quickly locally I needed them quick.

i did a lot of reading and according to the brembo website, OEM pads from a 2013 BMW S1000 RR (dual caliper setup) fit the 2010 690 SMC's 4 small pad brembo caliper.

So I put some on my bike - these are a sintered pad and have considerably more bite than the stock pads and do stop the bike a bit faster.

Attaching a photo of the part number. You can read about the Oem compound on the Brembo website but it's more aggressive than their Red pads.
