    what is the difference between 1st version and 2nd B01S resin pads?

    I'm planning on buying spare brake pads for my '09 GF Tassajara with Shimano M486, hydraulic disc, 160mm CenterLock rotors and the stock pads are Shimano resin B01S. There is a 1st version, as well as a 2nd version. Can someone please tell me what the differences are between the two?

    After googling a lot and coming to this thread several times, I thought I would share my findings.

    I found a preview of shimano performance parts catalogue 2011 (Cant post the link due to my low post count)

    It says:
    Same pad but differently sized split pin

    Y8ES98030* BR-M575, BR-M495, BR-M486, BR-M485, BR-M44

    Y8FH98030 BR-C501, BR-M525, BR-M495, BR-M475, BR-M465, BR-M416, BR-M416A, BR-M415

    * also available in workshop package (see page 34)
    So, from that, I figure that if you dont need the pin, you can get the cheaper model. It appears that the pin costs a lot there is about $8 difference between v1 and v2

    If I am not mistaken:
    Pin for v1 Y8DB06000
    Pin for v2 Y8C505000

    Pins can be bought from eBay as far as I can see, 10 of them cost ~$10
