Brake pads on R1200RT

I am putting new brake pads on my R1200RT. 

Does it really matter if you install organic pads on the rear ? 

I am installing EBC sintered HH pads front and back. 

 

Thanks

Only if you removed the ABS. The organics help soften the "bite" and are more controllable, but not necessary with the factory ABS as it will proportion brake pressure for you.

 EBC sintered HH work excellent on my RT.

My "once-only" use of organic pads on the rear of my '17 RT:  they were worn down to metal in 5000 miles!  Promised to not make that mistake again.

Do you know the EBC pad part number for front and back.  I have looked on a couple sites and seen different numbers.  I am new to my 2016 1200RT and want to be sure to get the right ones.
