I am going to think about and see if any other member of the forum has an advice on this issue.
I've got a pair of brand new OEM discs in my garage still in their original bags and box and the Honda part numbers are as stated by Erdinez above. I've just had a good look at them and can see no differences between them other than the left-hand one has an 'L' printed into it. I wondered whether there would be a directional arrow but there isn't. Both say the minimum thickness should be 5mm so it doesn't seem to be anything to do with that either.

Honda also list two different part numbers for front brake pads 06455-MT8-405 (for the left) and 06435-MT8-305 (for the right) with only one side having a shim. This makes me think there must be some design differences between the two sides but for the life of me I can't see it.
