Just a quicky before I have to do my own research. Does anyone know if the brake calipers are the same on a 2012 and 2015 bike? Im just a bit bored and Im looking to change my gold 2012 calipers for the black 2015 ones.

They won't fit a s1000xr - that's for sure  :001:

Far too tall for me would need step ladders. The s1000xr is the factory low one. I tried to get on the demonstrator but couldnt get it off the side stand so theyre letting me take the actual bike out all valeted and polished to death.

These are the same references of pads, so the etriers must be identical

To answer my own question. Yes they do fit. Black calipers fitted to a 2012 roadie.
Anyone want to buy a good set of gold ones?
