Hello Everybody, El Tig hit me up last night about break rotors. I have not replaced mine yet. I have been using organic pads and do a lot of highway miles. Has anyone replaced their rotors yet? Who had the best deal on the rotors anyway?

I hope I never have to, but then, the V's rotors don't take near the punishment that the rotors on my family vehicle does. I love the Kawi sawtooth rotors, but I'm guessing they're a pretty penny to replace.

Mine are EBC. Don't know cost, came with my V (purchased used). They look purty and work really well with aftermarket pads of unknown compound (came with bike).

Not only that, but I'm STILL on the original pads - BOTH Vs!

I just had my rotors moved over to a new (used) wheel after I bent the original.
Checked for thickness and runout, they are both fine. 41k on the bike. Been running the EBC HH for about 30 of that.

Rotors should last the life of the bike unless they are warped or scratched up. Replace the pads before they are completely worn down to prevent this. Really happy with the improvement in brake feel resulting from the change from stock pads to EBC HH pads. I feel like I can brake a lot harder without the risk of accidental lockup with them and they are not suddenly grabby like the old stock pads. They do seem to require a slight bit more lever pressure at the limit but also seem to provide a much more linear and consistent relationship between lever pressure and braking force which seems to make braking hard easier to master.
