Are 2012 brake pads same as 2011?

D2Moto has brake pads for the 2011 V-Strom. Was wondering if they will fit my 2012?
Thanks

Same pads....

Pat- 2007 DL650A was ridden to all 48 contiguous states. I didn't quite make it to 17,000 miles on the 2012 DL650A.
Nicknames I use to lessen typing, Vee = 2002-2012 DL1000s. Vee2=2014-2016 DL1000s. Wee = 2004-2011 DL650s. Glee = 2012-2016 DL650s
See https://www.stromtrooper.com/general-...nicknames.html

Just FYI,

Those a generic Chinese pads bought in bulk. You can see them with a lot of different names on them (e.g., Volar). They wholesale in the US for about the same price they go for on Ebay.

I think I can get them for <$2 a pad directly from China, but in very large quantities. Unfortunately shipping is more than the pads.

They might be OK. There are some horror stories out there about them, but for all I know they are urban legends.

if you want some reliable high quality pads we have the Galfer front set at 10% off and the rear pads free. Brake Pads - AdventureTech, LLC.
