Stock is usually recommended

BrakeTech, Brembo, PFM and Discacciati..... they all have very nice rotor kits available.

IMO its Brembo, PFM, Galfer, Braking in that order. I have always used Brembo HPK or race discs on my dry wheels and stock on my wets. On my road SP2 I have full race discs that I have used with stock, AP and Nissin calipers all with great effect.

Stick with stock if it's a road bike IMO.

How do you know that the rotor is bad? Have you checked the runout?




I'm always right.

I was thinking about them and Brembo SC brake pard but dont know is it worth it to change OEM rotors.For sure I want to fit Brembo master cylinder RCS 19x20-19x18 and will put Endless brake fluid.Then we will see what different it will make.
