    Brake rotors

    I got some of the ebay Chinese rotors so I'm getting rid of mine. They are stock 1999 front rotors and some of the little buttons will not move. A lot of you on here have helped me over the last two years so I will give them away for free! All you have to do is cover the shipping cost. My guess...

    Rotor question with aftermarket wheels

    Hey guys! Quick question, a search yielded no solid answer. I have a 2003 Vmax. It has a 17" Dymag rear wheel, and an 18" Dymag front. Will these wheels still use stock style rotors? Do I need to order anything special, or just rotors for an 03 Vmax? Rear rotor is looking slim, and I'm...

    Easy way to clean front rotors

    So my front brakes have been catching and I'm finally going to remove them and do it right! So what's the best way to clean the floating rotor bolts? (Or whatever they are called). Also, I want to replace the Allen bolts that hold the rotor on. Is stainless the way to go?? Thanks guys!

    Pulsating brakes after replacing pads and rotors.

    So about a week ago I did some work to my 97 vmax. Rebuilt the forks (new seals, bushings, fluid, Progressive springs). New wheel bearings. New front brake pads and rotors. I had a problem getting 3 of the rotor bolts out, and ended up welding a nut to the bolt to get them out. I'm...

    How many of you are running China/Hong Kong brake rotors?

    Hey all, I am in need of a new rear rotor but was thinking to just bite the bullet and replace all 3 at the same time just to keep them all at the same wear level. How many of you run the China/ Hong Kong rotors like these...

    Replacement Disc rotors

    I require replacement rotors front & rear for my 1985 Max. The are at the minimum thickness spec. Can anybody recommend a good quality replacement rotor as there seems to be few different styles & grades of rotors available. I don't use the bike too hard but want good stopping power.

    300mm rotors?

    Could I run 300mm rotors without dying a terrible death the first time I pull out of the driveway? I only ask because I'm trying to find the least expensive solution to this front wheel swap, and 300mm rotors are much easier to find with 80mm bolt spacing than 298s. Sent from my Galaxy Nexus...

    Chrome rotors

    Found some R1 rotors fully chromed and am looking for opinions in performance. Going to use them with a busa setup but wondering what people think about loosing friction with the rotors being chromed. Also how do you think the chrome will hold up and what type of pads would you recommend? Thanks.

    Which wave rotors to get for 86 Max?

    I'm doing the Hayabusa front upgrade and need some new front rotors. I'm trying to find some of the Chinese wave rotors on Ebay but I'm having no luck. What should I look for so that I know the wave rotor will work on my model (1986) vmax? Thanks!
