does anyone know of a good straightener in the sydney area...?
im looking to get one of my front brake rotors/discs straightened...
i know laurie alderton at smithfield does frames but does he do discs as well...?
anyone got his phone number/details on hand so i can ask him...?
does anyone have a spare straight front left rotor for an 02 gix6...?
pm me or leave a post if you got any helpful advice...

Remember that you will need 750 rotors. I think they are the same but not 100% sure dude.

O.o damm i didnt know they could be 'unwarped'
wouldnt that just make it structurally weaker?
cant be that much more for a new rotor can it?

I had Bob Martin engineering in melbourne do both of mine for about $70 and they were perfect. As far as I know, you can use all gsxr 600 / 750 rotor's from 96 to 03,/ 1000 rotors up to 02 and all Busa and TL one's as well but dont quote me on it.
gixxsexR, new rotor's were about $500 each when i was looking a couple of years back.....

600s 750s, 1000s, tlrs, busas are all the same disc just with different spider colors. (non radial caliper models of course)

Word is the Bob Martin's isn't real flash since Bob died...
He straightened one of my discs up a treat when I left my disc lock on. Got full life from it. So they are repairable.
