Loose brake rotors

Dear all,

My front brake rotors are really loose. The whole front end judders when I brake. Is it worth trying to install new brake buttons or should I just buy new brake rotors? Whats the best option price wise? EBC? OEM?

I have one rotor on my race bike that is pretty loose. I am going to replace them with the brembo rotors. I don't know the part # but they are about $550 for a set. The t-drive rotors are about $650 for a set. They will be slightly smaller 320 mm instead of 330 mm. All you have to do is remove the spacer in between the caliper and the fork.

I spent about 3 seasons racing my 848 with no-name, brandless rotors from Hong Kong I bought on eBay. The cost $186.00 delivered to my house.

They were awesome. I would never spend 500-700 for rotors, ESPECIALLY after my experience racing, and winning, with cheap rotors.

Just my 2 cents

Replace the rotors. Make sure the wheel bearings are Ok. Had good experience with the cheaper Ebay rotors myself also.

I guess the question is do you want to take a high performance part off your ducati and put a lower/ heavier part on your ducati. I would not replace with the oem as they are more expensive that the upgraded brembo rotors without a ducati part #. I see people race with all types of brake rotors. I prefer to keep my unsprung weight as low as I can on the bike.

I completely understand.

I had this exact, long drawn out debate with a few guys on my local forum after I posted up about my Hong Kong rotors....

My conclusion: Do whatever makes you feel better. I would 100% buy no name, eBay rotors from Hong Kong again.

Also, they were not heavier, lower performance than stock rotors.

They worked amazing.

And unless you race, I've braked WAY fuckin harder than any street rider. Ever. OVER AND OVER.

But again, do what makes you feel better. I'll save the $400 bucks

I would NEVER use no name rotors from China.

If I were on a budget and needed new rotors, I would buy OEM from eBay or the forums.
