Replaced my pads tonight. About 650 miles on them, not much left on 3 pads, and the 4th just barely completely gone on one end.
Hard miles, loaded down, stop and go, mudd, and alot of coal+shale.

$14 bucks for both front sides, shipped on ebay from Sixty. Seem to be decent pads. Part numbers are fa135 and fa165.
They cross reference to alot of machines,  same pads the Suzuki ltr 450 uses up front, so there pretty easy to find. For the price I just don't think you can go wrong.
Will be out riding Saturday,  I'll report back.

This is what I was confused about...even though the description says front or rear...The two part numbers were for Left Front and Right Front....even though it says rear, part number didn't match up to what others had said regarding part numbers.

So Nightstalker just changed his front pads with?.?.?

I was wanting to do all four wheels while I was making the mess.

That was nighthawk who changed his.......Not NIGHTSTALKER....I have not changed mine. This site has so much Darkness :)

Well, I ordered these pads:

http://pages.ebay.com/motors/link/?nav=item.view&id=151221528432&alt=web

http://pages.ebay.com/motors/link/?nav=item.view&id=151964171474&alt=web

And they came in today. They DO NOT FIT the 2015 ZForce800/53 in any way, shape or form, front or back. I don't know if the EX uses a different caliper but these will not fit the 53s at all. If they do fit something else and you need a set, let me know. Otherwise these are slated for the trash can. I known better. If it doesn't say it fits your machine, DON'T BUY IT!

Fortunately after taking then old ones off I see they actually have more then 90% left and the slides are well lubed and working well so at least I have some time.

The ones on the bottom are the off the rear of my 800/53 and the ones on the top are the rears from ebay which are longer, mount tabs are different and the hole "I"s on top are...well you get the picture.

Description says rear though and the others look very much the same. I'll pull a front off tomorrow and see.

Those CF moto rear pads sure do look exactly like the rear brake pads on my 2000 Kawasaki KX 250 MX bike.....

OK, so, yes, these are for the LEFT and RIGHT FRONT only. Have nothing to do with the rear at all. They fit fine except I had one issue with one of the right sets I bought. Wouldn't you know it was the first one I opened... They had left 6mms too much pad material on. Had to machine them down to fit. Thought they were all going to be this way but after installation and opening the next set I see that it was just a manufacturing error.

So..NightHawk, do you have a cross reference for the rears?  8) ;)

After 2 days of searching I was finally able to locate a pair of EBC FA651X pads for the rear of my Z8.  A local dealer provided me with a super secret EBC tech support number.  I ended up talking with EBC who then referred me to a distributor where I was finally able to order the pads.  The reason the pads are so hard to find is because they are European pads.  They are only available in the Carbon X compound at this time.  The distributor is www.perfectbrakes.com.  They were very knowledgeable and helpful.  A failing wheel bearing (1000 miles) cause my pads to wear prematurely.

I was not able to look it up.  I had to call them directly.  Those pads in that picture do not look like rear pads.  I think that just a stock image.
