Pads are the same too.

Well, the mc is different and the rotors are a little larger.

Pretty sure they're all the same dimensionally.

I wonder why the EBC Gen 1's have a shim on the back.

Supposedly for less heat transfer into the calipers and brake fluid. I never noticed a difference one way or the other.

Thanks for your input, I bought these gen II calipers, they do look similar to gen I stock ones, for $35.00, I'll rebuild them & install them soon, I like the silver, they will look better with my skunk bike.
I do have radial MC which workes very well with the stock calipers, not so abrupt like the stock MC

I finally installed the Gen-ll calipers on my gen-l, they fit exactly the same, use the same brake pads & work very well.
