    Caliper question on my 2007 T Factory

    I am looking at the brake pads for my 07 Factory and none look right.
    I looked at later model Aprilia's and saw my brakes. They were listed as Brembo M32.
    Are my brakes non standard and possibly swapped on?
    They are mono-block with one piece pads.
    Thanks! DT

    Later 2007 bikes use 2 pads.
    The 4 pad caliper is for earlier bikes.

    Always thought Factories were 4 pad and R's were 2 pad. It's quite possible the calipers have been changed to RSV4 monoblocs. Post up a photo of the calipers.

    Thanks Tifa, my mistake. I wish my 08 R had the 4 pad calipers,
    Aprilia must have tightened up with later years.

    Thanks for all the replies.
    I found out from the previous owner he put the later 2 pad mono-blocks on as an upgrade.

    Good to see you worked it out. The OEM 2 and 4 pad calipers are no slouch, but the RSV4 monoblocs would be a logical upgrade.
    I noticed a set for sale in AF1's 1000R used parts area yesterday...

    All the Factory's in 2007 fall under all brake parts for the 2007. Ape didn't split the 2007 Factory, just the R.

    Yes but pretty sure you will need new brake lines as the angle where it joins to the caliper is different. Its on my list of mods to do! Just waiting for some M4s to come up cheap on eBay but holding off as I just put new brake lines on. Ones that I couldnt use on the M4s.
