best rear brake disk?

I think I need a new rear brake disk. I was wondering what the best disk is for the 03 GSXR 600. I already ordered these pads.

I was thinking of getting this rotor.

Re: best rear brake disk?

We are serious. 80-90% of your braking power all comes from your front brakes on a motorcycle. When you are braking HARD, you rear brake essentially becomes useless......it's not like being in a car where all 4 wheels stay well planted on the ground.


If you even tapped the rear brake here it would immediately lock, skid/skip and unsettle the whole bike because as you can see by the daylight under the tire there's pretty much no weight/traction on the rear tire for the rear brake to do anything with.

Re: best rear brake disk?

Yep, I completly agree with using just the front brake at speed, but I use just the rear brake and engine braking all the time through town.

If you don't know how to use it then no, don't use it. Trail braking is an excellent tool for the track and require finesse and skill, but inexperienced street riders should not need to be trail braking on the street. If you are panic braking mid-corner then you are riding too fast. Either slow it down or take it to the track.

You are supposed to scrub the surface of the rotor to clean off any embedded pad material whenever you change pad brand/type. The surface of your rotor is actually a thin layer of brake pad material that gets deposited on it (called bedding-in). This is what your pads actually are gripping to, a layer of themself on your rotor. So when you switch to a different type of pad you are supposed to scrub them with some type of emory cloth or sandpaper.

If you mean can you stick a grooved/worn rotor in a lathe and cut it down like a car rotor, then no you cannot. There isn't enough material there to allow for that. If your rotors are grooved/scored, replace them.

There are plenty of books written on this.

He is . He still has an add on the WERA BBS . http://weraclassifieds.com/ads/light...r-rear-rotors/

GSXRcrased I wouldn't recommend this for you. No offense you use the rear brake way to much if you need to replace the rear rotor . With the cut rotor there is almost no stopping power .
