vented rotors have better braking performance. I put a solid rear rotor on my dirtbike and you had to stand on the pedal a little more to get the same braking results. A vented rear rotor on a dirtbike has a tendency to bring a lot of sand and dirt in contack with the brakepad, and the solid also dries quicker after you cross a creek or something.
