Front brake pad question

Looking at installing new front pads-EBC more specifically. Can someone pls confirm part no FA231HH for the front- are the left and right pads the same ? I noticed when checking the front pads/calipers that there is no little clip on either of the calipers. I did have this clip on the Vulcan Classic ( the clip that slides through a small hole on the non threaded pin) Is it missing on my bike ? is this clip of any great significance ?
EBC's are pretty pricey here- anyone perhaps recommend a good cheaper alternative ?

The left and right pads are not the same. They look the same but like hands you have a left and right. I use stock pads, 43082-0061 and 43082-0062. I do not know about a clip but there is a Spring Stopper kinda behind one pad guess you maybe talking about that. If you go here: 2007 Kawasaki VULCAN 1600 NOMAD (VN1600D7F) Front Brake | Babbitts Kawasaki Partshouse it is part 92144 A/B. Good luck.
