Currently have a set of the non-series BR-MT520 4p brakes, using the D02S finless metal pads.

Anyone know if these calipers are compatible with the finned N04C pads for the SLX/XT/XTR 4p brakes? My previous bike had the SLX 4p brakes which could take either D02S or N04C, but I know the MT520 caliper is different.

Asking because it appears D02S pads are unavailable everywhere. Even the sketchiest corners of the internet are showing none available. Can find D03S but do not wish to go the resin route.

In theory the N04C pads will fit it is just the fins that could cause a problem. Have you considered 3rd party pads such as ebc or Swisstop?

Fins on the N04C pads will indeed have clearance issues with the caliper body.

I saw if you grind a bit of the first fin or two they will fit.
