It seems like Piaggio liked to swap out manufacturers for OEM parts on the 2003 BV200 at the drop of a hat. I'm currently looking for brake pads for a NON-Grimeca style caliper. Everything I can find online is for Grimeca style calipers that don't fit my bike. The pic below shows the difference. My pad is on the right.

Any ideas?

you need the fitment for the heng tong caliper. EBC sells the SFA353 pads, they're organic, for sintered it's SFA353HH. both are very popular and you can probably source them on amazon, tbh.

if you want OE the #'s are 497072, 497116, 647078, 650983 and 56012R so there's a bit of searching but i'm sure you can find some "green backs" kicking around-- heck, i've got a few sets on the shelf even.

also, Vesrah lists as VD983

scooterwest sells them as BP250-PA

hth.
