Front Brake Rotors?

So yeah...I need to replace my front brake rotors. Actually just one is going bad but I figure replacing them as a set is probably a safe bet. I guess I'll have to buy ANOTHER front set of pads after the change too. bah.

Anyway, anyone have any opinion on some decent (but somewhat inexpensive!) aftermarket front brake rotors?

Galfer Wave!

Oh, did you say NOT expensive?

The EBC company makes some nice ones, but again, not the cheapest things on the planets.

You could always just try to get another set of the stockers from Ebay or wherever.

Good luck!

Id either go galfer wave rotors. Or watch ebay for a stock set, stockers aren't bad at all. And i really don't think your beating on your stockers enoughto need wave rotors. Go with stockers.

Not too mention theres always someone parting out a bike on there..

Plus you can post up in the wanted section, and Im sure someone will get back to you.. That site seems pretty good for getting what you need in the Busa department..

2,000 miles on a drag bike is equal to 8,000 quarter mile passes.
So, the brakes have been used maybe twice?
Less than 1% wear on them.
A good deal there!
