New rotors?

While looking for new levers for my 919 I stumbled across this listing: Front Rear Brake Disc Rotor Honda CB 900 F Hornet 02-07 03 04 05 06 2002-2007 | eBay. Does anyone know much re: aftermarket rotors on the forum? I know switching from OEM to Baer to Inroble in my car made a huge difference, and was wondering if I could expect similar increase in braking feel/force? An added benefit would be the loss of the squeal when I'm riding in the city a lot. Also, if someone has a line on some levers at a good price, let me know!

Cheers,

J

Yeah, I would avoid those. EBC would be an excellent choice for a quality rotor. Not those wanna be Chinese knockoffs of the crap Wave rotors.

ya i definietly wouldn't go with some Chinese knockoff rotor in the front.

Honestly with rotors on a bike your probably not going to notice much of a difference unless your switching to come ceramic or carbon rotor setup... hell you probably wont see a person who actually races run any type of wave rotor.

I got fucked in the butt on some egay rotors, Big Jim. Jesus above they were thin, poorly machined, shitty metalurgy and I shitcanned them and would never ever ever do that again. I ended up resurrecting my stock rotor and buying another caliper.

In my opinion, the M1 rifle is the greatest battle implement ever devised.
