You'd think this would be a simple question


Seriously.
My question is this: the part numbers for a Suzuki 2015 DL650A rear brake pads. I don't care except they're a good brand.
My Google Fu Karma must be all messed up today.
StromTroopers custom Google search returns DL1000 info.
Amazon Garage returns friggin Ford disc brake pads.
I have the actual factory manual and do you think the damn thing has part #'s for the brakes?
Hell no! They can tell me the specific antifreeze they recommend but not something crucial like brake pads.
I just happen to know that sintered pads are a bad idea with ABS - thank God because almost all the results I get are for sintered pads.
I know this is a rant but greatgoogleymoogly how hard can it be to return relevant results fo this search string: :2015 suzuki dl650a ABS rear brake pad part number"
*sigh*
So if anyone can help me out - I'm running behind on a simple tire change and just want to git-r-done.

Sintered pads bad for ABS? I have never heard that?

**before** ABS it was often suggested to no. Use higher performance pads on the rear brakes as it was easier to lock up the rear. With ABS bikes that concern is pretty much gone (and may have been overstated in the first place anyway.)

..Tom

My Opinion:
Vee or V= DL1000 before 2014
Vee2 or V2 = DL1000 2015 to 2019
Vee3 or V3 = DL1050 2020 to?

My Stroms:
2006 DL650: 202,000 km 125,500 miles, Sold
2012 DL650 139,500+ km, 86,700+ miles. Sold
2015 DL1000 New July 2015 205,000+ km, 127,000+ miles.

You should be searching for Suzi parts - usually dealerships with an online parts business. Once you find several of these (like the ones mentioned in links by Hilo Haloe) enter your bike model and year, find the appropriate parts fiche, and that's where you will find the part number.

Google is good for searching, but their algorithms are not perfect.

Sintered HH on SS disc's = Good

Sintered HH on Cast Iron disc's = Bad

The DL has SS disc's. I had excellent luck with the Volar/DanMoto/or whatever else they call them cheapie HH pads off Amazon on various bikes.
