freek's warped many rotors, both stock and aftermarket if I'm not mistaken!

If stock rotors were the cat's ass, you'd see them on GP bikes, no?


GP bike would be disqulified if it had stock brakes (or ANY stock parts)

those new BEC rotors almost look like stock, though I am sure they dont work like stock ones.....as far as ebc pads go, I will only run them on my EBC rotors on my ZX12R, I absolutely hate the pads on my ZX10R, they dont give me good feed back and fade quickly......I took some 60 grit sand paper to my rotors and scuffed them up and knocked any glaze that might have been on them before changing over to them, it didnt help......but I know A LOT of guys that swear by those pads.....

I have always liked EBC myself and that thought has much more meaning this week. I purchases new Pro-Lite race rotors and Pro-lite oe replacement rear with new HH pads fopr my ZX11 a few months ago. They developed problems 200 miles into the "bed in" period. Warped rear and front chatter. I was angry and worried that there would be a problem with handling this transaction. Mr Freeman contacted me by e-mail and told me to not worry that I will be recieving a package that would make my eyes pop wide open. I cant wait to see what is in it. Never the less that tells me that he is indeed into his company and stands behind what he sells.

Thanks Fish great video..I will continue to consider these when i can find them at a local performance shop..As far as the price There quoted on the first video as $149.95 Each..And there is no part of a GP bike thats Factory so the statement that You would be Disqualified for stock parts is incorrect..There by no means a high production item..Mass production GP bikes would be nice though..Saving cash for a turbo is my main focus right now..Never owned a Turbo bike and the 14 would be a great first start..

Crap, I got squeeling brakes now. 3200 miles... They squeel when I hit them at anything less than a hard stop. Been doing it for a couple days, thought it was because it's been sitting most of this unusually bad winter.

Oh well, tiime for HH pads

Still tyring to get info on the stainless material on the EBC rotors apparently the manufacture doesn't easly give up specs in detail..But i did find out the ZX14 has oval retainer rings "milling" in the center hub and also interesting the center hub is made out of high grade aluminum compared to most "Statement" are steel from EBC..So far i see no differnce except for a grove cut into the EBC rotors.. So now i will buy a set and keep new factory pads and see if there is a huge differnce as some claim..More power racing agreed to return them if not happy with any product they sell.. Not trying to slam there product just curious about what makes them so much better..

nice!

will you post up what you think of them after putting them to the test? HH pads, spiegal brake lines, and decent front rotors and blue painter's tape are next on the list for my Yamaha.

I'm about to "track day" the bish now that its 10 months old and its newness is gone.

EBC Rotors

quote:
These new wave rotors appear super-sweet, bet they are hard to warp. Wonder what they'll cost, and will they be competitive to the galfer wave rotors?

EBC "HH" pads are all I run :P
I like them better then galfer's. I put a set on my 06 and they look good but i didn't notice much differance then the stockers. I also learned that if you dont use special pads the galfers will feel like they are warped when applied. I had seen a post from fish when ebc first started advertizing them,and got one of the first sets for the 14. Just short of 400.00 for the set and they work great. When you pick them up you wont believe how light they feel. Im ordering a set for my 08 in a couple weeks. I highly recommend them.

Clean the pads with emery cloth and slight rub, clean all of the dust behind the pads with brake cleaner and compressed air, they will work better and the squeelling will go away.
Worked for me.
