I'd replace the brakes now. Better to err on the side of safety.

Just my 2 cents..

I'd order the part you need asap, but I wouldn't let that keep me from riding. You still have good working front brakes, right?

Uh....maybe I'm confused, but aren't you pointing to the mounting circle for the pin that holds the brake pads in place? If so, it's just moved away from the caliper because the piston has pushed it out. Completely normal unless the pads are worn to the limits. If the circle is coming apart that is another issue, and yes I would replace it. I don't see what this had to do with the brake rotor via that picture, but maybe I missed something.

There is not a whole lot going on with the rear brake pad. Looks like there is some sort of white backing next to the pad followed by a thin metal backing plate. All sandwiched together.

I think that white backing is there for anti squeal. Correct me if I'm wrong. A split or small piece missing around the pin will not effect the rear breaking.

OEM yes, Aftermarket no. Here again that is only a educated guess.

Mikes Right. OEM Yes. After Market Has a different Type of Backing Plate, & some don't have any at all. You can use the OEM stuff on the after market pads that don't have one. Makes no difference. All is Interchangeable. Its all for anti-squeal.:001_smile:
