Has anyone found any inexpensive front rotors? Mother Honda is up there!!! I bent one replacing a tire. I was able to straighten it but, not quite 100%. :eek:4:

A warped rotor could cause major havoc in a panic stop, bite the bullet, get a new one.

Brakes are one area I would not try to pinch pennies. Bite the bullet and get OEM rotors. Don't try and out smart mother Honda on this one.

Hal had the best price I could find when I needed a new rotor...beat the Honda Dealer price by many dollars.

This is why I remove the rotors when I change a front tire.

Lots of people get away with leaving them in place, but it only takes one slip or the wheel falling over while off the bike to damage the rotors.

I got a set of slightly used Honda VFR 800 front rotors off of E-bay for $75 to replace the rotors on the front of my GL1800. Honda used the same rotors on several different bikes. Shop around.
