Anyone used any aftermarket brands with success that weren't eleventy million dollars?? Tempted to get EBC X-series rotors from STG but they are out of stock till next year and I can't wait that long.


Rorz -


My 320mm (Chinese!) petal discs were $199 delivered.

They have been raced extensively now in all conditions, are still straight and are wearing well. Who'd a thunk it?

I'll try to find a link.

I agree.

I spent a lot of time staring at the damage on your bike and it was pretty unique. Rather than slide damage, I believe you case sliders took the full weight of the bike as it landed, at a roughly 45 degree angle. The case savers didn't get a chance to slide or grind as is often the case (sorry) they just snapped off at the fasteners.

A pretty damn brutal hit. I think that physically, you got off pretty lightly...and I was watching you at the time!

After riding 320's for the first time last month, I plopped down for some 320mm EBC XC's. Do I really need to pull 1.1g of braking force on a bike that tops at 190 kays? Of course not, but damn is it fun!

Yes indeed!

They make removing the wheel (brake calipers...) a pain in the arse, and you'd better have 90 degree valve stems, but they work a treat.

I took a big risk with the cheapie Chinese discs - it was that or miss a race - but as it happens they have worked a treat for over a year now. Race proven*

*Disclaimer - this does not mean that the next pair to come off the production line won't warp, shatter or wear out in one weekend.

Changed the case on the RHS, new case savers haven't rocked up yet so I couldn't put them on at the same time. Took the airbox off, had a good look around. Looks like the oil breather has come off the airbox. Some oil in the airbox but not really as much as I would have thought. Some spillage outside the airbox from where the hose has been sitting after coming off. Refilled with fresh oil and water. Realised radiator is damaged. Neck section that the cap screws into is all mangled, cap doesn't go on anymore. Refilled it with demin water and realised it also has a crack where the bolt from the overflow threads into it. Probably looking at a new radiator.

So I stuffed a rag into the radiator and turned it over. Fired up straight away and seems to run well. Couldn't see any oil leaks so things are looking good.
