Where do you get new rotors cheap?

The Tigress is at 43k and about to get a little love - front tire, chain, oil change, etc. It's also time for a new rear rotor. Where do you guys get 'em? Actually I'd be happy with low mileage used or a new aftermarket one - cheap.

Ebay.

For the fronts, CBR 600F4i rotors are a direct bolt on. They are actually lighter than the stock rotors as stock rotors have steel carriers & the F4is have aluminum carriers.

Both of these are plenty available on Ebay.

I would only buy new from china off ebay when it comes to rotors. I've tried to get used rotors from the local US sellers and have frequently had a bent rotor, which entails sending off to have trued (to truedisk).

Ok I decided to risk it. Cheap enough. I pulled the trigger on this one. Here's hoping.

Sorry, didn't reply sooner but I am not sure what you mean?

I haven't bought anything from China except for copper electrical plugs for my DIY power cable projects.

I was implying with my initial post that you can get plenty decent shaped used rotors from Ebay.

Anyway looks like you already decided, so good luck with your purchase. Let us know how you make out.

Only issues with shipping is the wait. Some items come fast, others take their own sweet time.
