Honda has them as right and left but aftermarket are usually one size fits all. The difference is the shims on the back of the pads.

But brake pads should never be an immediate need.

Dealer here in Denver DOES have OEM 1500 pads on hand, I asked to see a new set so I could judge how much mine were worn. was prepping for cross-country trip pulling the camper. Determined the pads on the bike still had at least 75% of the meat remaining and I did not need to replace for this trip. But nice to know they are still on the shelf locally.
