17+ replacement pads for Tokico calipers

Anyone having trouble finding replacement pads for these???
Seems so simple: looking for replacement brake pads for a 2017 CBR1000 RR with Tokico calipers and NO ONE in Southern California has them
Went to three shops today and all the pads they had listed as fitting this bike were wrong - they fit the 08-16
Didn't matter the brand, they were all incorrect. I took the OEM pad in for comparison.

It's not funny, but it's funny



17 CBR1Krr "Madame"
15 600rr "Side chick"
10 CBR1Krr "Mistress" race bike
08 Limited 1KRR (Gone wrecked by Dealer)
08 Red 1KRR (Red IS faster!)

Partzilla shows them as 06455-MKF-D41

https://www.partzilla.com/catalog/ho...rake-caliper-1

Ronayers.com has them for the same price also.

To be honest I don't think any of the higher end replacement pad manufacturers realized that Honda changed the calipers in 2017 to a different style without retaining pins. Not to mention that the sales of the bike have been bad, there probably hasn't been that much market demand for them.

2004 CBR1000RR (Yelena)- modded track/street bike, 398lb RTR!
2002 RC51 (Christina)- rode hard and put away wet, sold
2006 CBR600RR (Nikki) - how the addiction started, sold

Hard to believe that I'm the only person who is having issues finding pads.
I had to order the OEM ones.

I guess it's my fault for thinking I could just walk into a store and buy brake pads.....

No, (and I work in a parts dept), you really kind of should expect to. Trouble is, most parts departments are stocked for demand, and usually by computer, and most managers are under pressure to not keep too much cash tied up in stock. So, for a fairly new and rare model that I imagine most average dealer shoppers (average rider, probably not a lot of track days or hard braking zones in their daily lives) haven't worn the pads out on, most dealers aren't going to have them on their stock list yet, hence won't have any. Another issue is people who DO use up pads tend to source them from other places.

The big problem for dealers, is if they don't try to keep an eye out for this sort of thing and bring some common service parts in for situations such as this, more people do go elsewhere and the downward spiral continues, example, your lost sale likely never registered with the system and the system won't register any demand, so they won't be there for the next guy either, unless a sharp manager catches it.

Actually - if you are talking about a Honda dealer that has sold ANY 2017+ CBR1000RRs then they are morons for not stocking at least 1 set of consumables for that model. 1 set of pads, 1 air filter 1 oil filter etc.

The lost sale and customer is on the parts managers head for not keeping track of unit sales.

After the sale I presume they would keep in contact with the buyer and remind them to come back if they need pads, filters or tires.

If this is not how most motorcycle dealers operate then no wonder the US bike sales scene is int he crapper.

Not sure you're reading me right? That is exactly how it should work. But it doesn't (for many reasons, none of them very good). Like I said to the OP, he absolutely should have expected to find those pads, and it's disappointing that he didn't, and it's even more disappointing that the next guy won't find them, either.

I am glad it is supposed to work the way I thought it should
