May have just solved it. For others, EBC doesn't list the gen 2. However, it seems the gen 2 uses the same front brakes as the the 2013 YZF-R1 (and some other years too).


Now: How many of these are needed? I know I have dual rotors, so at least two, but it looks like each rotor has two sets as well.

And here's that answer too:

The pictures most sites show online for that set of brake pads isn't accurate. Max has a 3 piston front brake. For each caliper (we have two 2) we need a left and right set that covers 2 pistons, and another set that covers 1 piston.

While the pics don't show it correctly, the part number I showed above gives us exactly that. Basically we get 4 of the required pads, and that covers 1 caliper. So two sets are needed.

Here is a correct pic:
