1100 Front Disc Orientation?

I was looking at the online fiche today and noticed that the 1100 has different part numbers for the left and right discs. How does one tell them apart? I've looked mine over and cant find a part number anywhere. Is there a mark or stamp somewhere?

when i bought aftermarket rotors (TRW) there was no left/right option. same disc on both sides. the brakes still work...

i wonder whether the difference has to do with TUV certification.

did your gorgeous, aggressively-priced bike not sell???

Had a look at mine (04 BCR - came with ABS). The outside has a Brembo symbol stamp on each side located near one of the mounting tabs. Inside has no stamp. But disks look identical so orientation probably does not matter.

Thanks.

No, bike hasn't sold. I pulled it off my local CL, guess my heart isn't in it.

Had a lot of "tire kickers". One guy showed up on a nice, older Concours and took mine for a test ride. When he returned he said it vibrated too much and I was trying to sell a damaged bike. I offered to let him try my 1150GS but he wasn't having any of it. Whatever.
