    There are no front ones that look like the yellow caliper - except maybe at a glance when most of it is hidden by the wheel. There are 4 different sizes of front caliper, the smaller 2 look like each other, and the larger 2 also look similar to each other but quite different to the smaller two.

    In summary, there's nothing different or special about your calipers, you simply have 285mm diameter vented front disks with a caliper to match, and 278mm solid rear disks.
