    brake rotors

    I have an r100rs circa 1982 and it is time to replace the brake rotors all around. My question: Replace with stock BMW, send off to Spiegler, or get "plug and play" EBC? Does anyone know of any other choices on the market today? I see that moto-bins stocks Grimeca...anyone had any luck using these?

    r 100 rs brake rotors

    motolatte:

    My main suggestion would be to stay away from the PFM cast iron rotors - they'll warp. And they're really expensive. I would bite the bullet and go with Spieglers. And they look nice too.

    Maybe

    In 2000 I bought cast iron rotors from Motorworks UK. These were simple undrilled disks that fit the BMW carriers. My recollection was that they were not that expensive. After 9-11-01 they stopped shipping to the US. Maybe they have resumed shipping across the pond.

    They work great, but get a film of iron oxide if the bike (the brakes anyway) is not put away dry

    Visit http://www.cyclebrakes.com/ and then give Melissa a call. She generally has good prices and several options, depending on your particular bike.

    She's running a special on Brembos for some BMWs... http://www.cyclebrakes.com/html/special_rotors.html.

    Disclaimer: I have no connection nor interest in Cycle Brakes. I am simply a delighted customer (several times over) and hope to see them stay in business.
