I recently replaced mine with second hand OEM discs but by far the best deal I could find were the EBC rotors from the UK. If you have an S model I think youll have to stick with OEM discs as they have the special speed sensor bobbins.

I raced for 3plus seasons on no name, no brand front rotors from Hong Kong. They cost me $186.00 delivered to my house.

They worked amazing and like I said, I raced and won a bunch of races on the cheap Hong Kong rotors. The bike still has these rotors on it now, however it's just a trackday bike now. The new owner is very pleased with the bikes brakes.

Dont throw away money on a brand name if you dont have to.....

The trouble with anything from China is the variability. Sometimes you get what you pay for, sometimes you don't. The last braking equipment I bought from china were brake levers for a honda. On the first ride the thumbwheel fell off.

The EBC rotors are around 300 USD on ebay and are made in the UK.

Cheers
