  • brake rotors

    Has anyone tried the china made brake rotors on ebay? They look just like wave rotors. You can get fronts for around 210 shipped to states. True waves are like 550.

    Re: brake rotors

    There have been some posts about these rotors in the past. The quality of the metal is not even close. Cheap rotors are going to warp faster, corrode faster, and possibly fail. You don't want to mess around when it comes to brakes.
    Looking for ETI fuel Cell or carbon bimota tank, and a rear seat for the TLR... PM me with those items.

        well if you are like me and don't have a whole lot of money they will work. obviously they aren't the best out there. But I've had a pair on mine for a while now and they are okay. I'm on a budget and couldn't really afford anything better so I figured I'd give them a try. I guess all I can say is they are acceptable if you can't afford anything better.

          Mine are a bit warped. Not bad they only have like 45000mi on them. I don't know why I get some feed back from them. Lol. I'm on a budget to can't afford much it will take a month be for I could get them or like 3 or 4 for wave.

              Just noticing a trend in your interests and recent posts. My advice would be to shy away from pretty much anything Chinese made dude.

                Just wondering how sure you are that your rotors are warped? Sometimes a sticky caliper can cause similar symptoms. If you rebuild the calipers (reusing original pistons) it's cheaper than rotors. I just finished doing this about a week ago, and all is well. Caliper seals cost about $35 or $40 bucks from the dealer. It was only my right caliper that was sticking but I figured the bike has 47,000 miles on it and I might as well do both calipers. It felt much like a warped rotor, but it totally fixed my problem.

                  I'd rather stick to stock rotors. They are not exspensive, just find some good ones. The chinese stuff is not falling apart when you look at it, my brother in law has a set as well. But these having pitting, I believe from too much thermal load..

                    Just an addition to my last post. It's about $35 or $40 per caliper for the seals. But still that's not a whole lot. Just be very careful when you remove the pistons. Use a very thick rag between the pliers and the pistons as they appear to be brass or some other soft metal. If you damage them you'll have to buy new ones and I think they are over $70 per caliper.
