I was pulling my brake pads out because both front and rear were squeeking - to put that anti-squeek grease on the back sides of the pads. Front pads are fine, but the rear were worn really low. I have a set of front pads from when I replaced them before that have quite a bit of pad left. They look to be the same as the rear, so I put a set in to replace the rear ones. I haven't ridden the bike yet. I've noticed on Cyclemax web site, they have different part numbers for front and rear (T61-1692 for front and T61-1690 for rear). Should I not use these 'spare' pads in the back and will there be any damage if using them until I can get a set specifically for the rear?

If you already fitted the pads and they are working, then why ask? I say ride with them until they wear out. Probably the worst can happen is they will squeal.

BTubb, I think the part number difference is the thickness of the pad material, as you have worn pads to work with, there should be no trouble since the backing plates are the same.

Anim8or Earl is right, the rear pads are different but only in thickness so putting front pads in the rear will be the same as if the proper pads were in place and worn down a bit. The piston skirts in the caliper are long enough so there won't be any problem with them coming out of their bores too far.

No. Only the 1981 and 1983 takes same pads front and rear. For 1982 you need FA69/2
on the front and FA69 on the back.
The EBC list for all years is on this page, near the bottom: http://www.goldwingfacts.com/GoldwingTips.htm
Take that list with a grain of salt, since the list states the rear brake pads for the '82 and '83 GL1100 as FA29. I pointed out the mistake out several years ago, but no one cares enough to correct it.

I had a conversation with the guy at CycleMax regarding the correct EBC pads for the '82 Interstate. I told him what 'our' chart said and he cross referenced his part numbers. We both looked on the EBC web site and confirmed that indeed 'our' chart is wrong. The correct EBC pads are as Anin8or pointed out - FA69/2 on the front and FA69 on the rear. CycleMax's part numbers are correct as well.
However, seeing that the only difference is the pad thickness and the backing plates are the same (as I had hoped), I don't think I'll need new pads. I haven't ridden the bike since I put these in, but will after work today to give it a good test.
