    2001 K1200RS Brake Rotor Question

    Question for you gearheads out there. I have a 2001 K1200rs. Would the rotors in the pics need replaced or they getting close to end of life. I am getting ready to replace brake pads this year and I am just curious.I haven't micrometer them yet but plan too just in case. Thanks for the help.

    I don't see anything in those photos that scares me, but as you already know, the micrometer holds the real answer.

    Unless you have some really finely calibrated fingers have the rotors miked... but, assuming they are within spec, it never hurts to take a very light cleaning pass over the rotor faces when replacing pads. This would cost a bit extra and involve removing and refitting the rotors and possibly resetting the ABS clearances so if you were satisfied with the performance of the brakes with the old pads, i.e. no grabbing or vibration you're probably good to go as is if the rotors are still within tolerance.

    Also, check with your local DMV as some states have fairly limiting regulations regarding the machining of brake rotors.
