Brake Pad Questions

I am nearly due to replace brake pads on my 2009 K1300GT. I am trying to figure out what I should use for replacement parts. My bike has the brake pad wear indicating system, but it is not triggered yet. Here are my questions,

Does the wear indicating system monitor the wire in the brake pads for a short to ground? Or for an Open?

If I choose to disable the wear indicating system, will it set the alarm if I leave it disconnected (open)? Or should I jumper it?

Are the stock pads ceramic, front & rear? Or is one set or both sintered?

Has anyone found after market sintered pads, or have any knowledge of availability of them?

Thanks for helping.

If you move this to the K1200/1300 section above, you might get a response.
