well it's about that time to get some new rotors for racing,so my question is are the OEM rotors good enough cause i could get a cheaper pair off ebay or should i get some other brand name and spend some real money and if so which ones would you recommend for racing.

Cheers and thanks in advance

I'm not trying to cut costs here, and i know you get what u pay for and i know how important brakes are, i was just asking weather or not OEM are good enough for racing, because if they are then i may be able to get them cheaper off ebay, but if not then what rotors should i go with, i just dont know what rotor would be the best.

ah, isss, well check the links i posted.
Maybe that will help you decide.
i love the way the galfer wave rotors look, but i cant help thinking the EBC or better yet, the brembos are better, since they also do car brakes i figure they know there stuff, and we all know brembo is the sh!t.

It's sad how over priced MC parts are sometimes. I bought new rotors and pads for my wife's Yukon the other day; the total came to approx $300.00.

Just a reminder to check your rule book to see what is allowed in the classes you intend to run. Could be a factor. I run stock rotors with Veshra pads and like the feel.

Now I know why you lost a couple of seconds of your normal pace... your damn brakes are working too well. Grease those bitches up a little bit next time out, I'll bet you pick up that lost time ;)

Seriously though, I can only recommend AGAINST wave rotors, they're heavier than stock and I didn't feel they worked as well either. I don't know about Tuna's rotors, but if he likes 'em they might be worth a try if you can save a buck or two, if not OEMs are pretty damn good. I really wish someone would get the new ceramic / carbon rotors so I can hear how they perform. Only $1800 a set too! They are about 3 pounds lighter than stock per pair... that's a huge difference.

I'd say stick with the stockers. Unless you're running times to compete in the type 5 of an AMA FX race.

Hold up, wait a minute... doesn't brake tech make the ceramic carbon rotors? If so .... Tuna, you see me working here, right?

Uhhh, yeah Marchesini magnesium 3.25" X 16.5" on the 04 R1 in case you need the fitment :0>

Tell them to think of all the sales they'll make with all the exposure in Florida.

Ditto, if you're running a production class, you may not be able to change rotors. I sold my wave rotors and went back to stock for this very reason.

Yeah, the Vesrah pads rock!

If you're a new racer, like myself, save your money for tires... ;)

Well that’s my next question, I’ve just done my race school at Jennings and what a track, absolutely loved it, so now I can start racing (yippee) anyway back to the point so what class can or should I run because i dont really know about what class i can be in or should be in and i dont really know what happens on race day also what organization should I go with WERA or CCS for the SE region, any recommendations would be appreciated because i dont really know what to do from here. So should I just stick with OEM Rotors then and spend the money on tires. Also just want to say it was the first time I actually got to ride the RR and oh yes I absolutely love the thing the bike just ROCKS plain and simple, had such a good day and cant wait to actually race the thing.

Thanks in advance for any advice.
