rotor recommendations

I'm seeing ranges from $180 for a set of fronts to $500 ish. I am just looking for a good replacement/slight upgrade from stock. Not doing racing or hard braking in general. Thanks.

Re: rotor recommendations

Anything that is OEM or a major brand, like EBC or Galfer. Those $180 rotors are junk.

Re: rotor recommendations

Do not buy cheap Chinese knockoff rotors. Get OEM, Galfer, or EBC.

Re: rotor recommendations

if you are in australia then the nest budget option is 'metal gear'- usually halfway between the cheap ebay stuff and OEM prices. but they do a good rotor that is up to OEM spec.
the rest is junk and warp or have harmonics and all sorts of shitty problems.

Re: rotor recommendations

Ordered Galfer rotors from Motomummy a few weeks ago;free rear rotor included. Can't beat that

Re: rotor recommendations

Might want to look at Driven rotors. They are a little cheaper than EBC but still good quality and slight improvement over OEM.
