Should be as they use exactly the same calipers :)

Bought myself some esseesse discs including front brembo pads. Just need some rear pads now? What should I buy anyone? What's on the esseesse as standard?

Will think the pads are just standard from the 165. So rears aren't hugely important mate :)

As above - the Esseesse uses standard pads on the rear :)

A vast majority of the braking happens up front, the rears only got new discs so it wouldn't look silly ;D

I've got Mintex pads all round, stops better than standard pads as I found them quite spongy
