    F03c pads in a M8000 brake caliper, will it work?

    I just noticed that the M8000 brake calipers call for J04c brake pads, what has changed between them and the F03c pads and will the old pads work fine in the new calipers?

    If you go to Shimano's tech doc's (better first place to look than juts asking on a forum, as they made the item, and forum responses could be good or terrible, besides you'll get the answer a lot faster );

    SHIMANO Dealer's Manual / User's Manual

    For the M8000 series brake calliper, you want the exploded view that also contains interchange-ability of parts;

    http://si.shimano.com/php/download.p...M8000-3857.pdf

    You'll see that with regards to 785 series brakes the new G02A, G04S, J02A and J04c pads for the M8000 are "B: Parts are usable, but differ in materials, appearance, finish, size, etc."

    So that means the old pads for the 785 series will work in the new M8000 calipers, but there's some material or colour difference (what that means for performance you'd have to see, can't see it being a large difference and would assume the newer ones would work better or last longer or something, but it could very well just be a different paint job on the backing plate!)
