where can i find some after market rotors for my 9r?

i tell ya, the 9r is a BITCH on breaks and rotors!!!!

and the break fluid ALWAYS gets trashed after a couple days!!! of hard riding.

anyway?

i might do a COMPLETE break master, calipers, and rotors all together?
if i find something kick ass.

OR just some rotors.

its either i do it all or do just whats the problem.
and my rotors are a touched warped for the last 7000 miles and i am sick of it.


any ideas or links, suggestions?

thanks guys.

Call Jeff at Carbo Tex 972-422-6952. He sells Speigler, and says it rocks. Go nuts!

mark do you have a site for all that brembo stuff?


v2neal do you have a site to that: Speigler



steve the EBC rotors are those the cast iron ones?


wave rotors i hear there pretty good, might be really a cool thing since its light weight and is actuall less rotating gyro motion, free's up front end weight, to make it flick better.
(from what i know)

The finish on the ebcís is really low quality. Last fall I bought 1 ebc, cause my bike had disc lock damage. By the summer the anodized parts looked like crap. The actual rotor material is cheap looking too. My bike has only been wet a twice since I owned it, so thatís not the prob. You get what you pay for.

Allen, I just talked to EBC. If you are not happy with your rotor, Contact me. EBC is more than willing to make things right. Both my supplier and EBC report no dissatisfaction with their parts.
PM me or call 800 953 6007

If you want to solve your brake fluid problem, replace whatever you have in your system now with Castrol SRF. This is the only fluid you should be using if you are going to push your brakes hard. It is the only brake fluid that is non-hygroscopic, which means it does not attract water. SRF is considered the BEST brake fluid PERIOD. It is not cheap, but worth every penny. Pegasus Auto Racing Supplies sells it and they are located in Wisconsin. Check out http://www.catalogs.google.com/catal...14&catpage=119

I run SRF in my bike and in the race car that I work on. We bleed brakes alot less often in the racecar since we switched to SRF.
