    I did look in your garage, you say the ones you bought were SBK3, are they a different shape to the SBK5 maybe you should just get oem brembos you know will fit and they'll be plenty good enough

    The SBK3s I got look exactly like the SBK5s in the pic. The ones I pulled out of my bike look like the ones in the other pic. It shouldn't be this freaking complicated, right?

    Noticed my smileys have gone from confused to spankin it to barfing now! Ha Ha!

    I'm going to ask a really stupid question here, because I like asking them

    Have you tried fitting them or are you just comparing pads by sight?

    i run carbon lorraine sbk5+ in mine
    great pads, good bite and feel from cold to hot

    the pads in your bottom pic are for the 4pads per caliper ones the other pic dunno about them but don't look like mille ones

    Thank god! I was starting to feel like I was losing my mind or something! So why do the other ones seem to be what everyone else has even if their bike is the same model as mine?

    So you're saying that you have the bottom pic style, same as I do? And you got SBK5s in that shape? Do you have the package lying around possibly with a part number on it?

    Yup, I thought that they might have a revised version/shape or something but not a freaking chance. They were wider, thicker and the retaining clip set-up is not even vaguely similar.
