Rotors

For those that are interested.

This is from Cal-Sportbike
http://www.calsportbike.com/cgi-bin/...d=1022885.8167
Galfer Front Wave Rotors
Part# DF063 (same as f4i)
$544.99 W/FREE Galfer HH pads

Galfer Rear Wave Rotor
Part # DF007 (DL650/1000 V-STORM)
$125.99

He said for my 06 919, F4i has same front rotor as 919, but different rear.
So the DF063 front rotors are for your bike, but it takes a DF007 rear
rotor. He confirmed this right from Galfer.

Does the wave design make the brake better or is it just for asthetic purpose?

Waves are supposed to add more bite, but they don't last as long.

I never had them though.

I heard that the waves make more surface area so they cool faster.

We could go on forever trying to convey the real meaning of the concept of the Wave Disk. This somewhat strange disk has been in development for a long time and has finally come to be. The real essence of this brake disk is that the braking has nothing to do with the disk, yet the disk means everything. Confused? Don't be; read on. It is not so much the surface area of the disk which creates better stopping power. It is the efficiency in which it utilizes all the pads surface evenly, the elimination of lightening holes (for added strength) and the ability to expand and contract as it heats up without warping the disk. Simply put, these disks use all pad surfaces for maximum stopping power while remaining perfectly flat. This design is covered with an international license.
The rotors are long wearing but some have noted the pads wear faster.

The wave rotors are designed to work excellent with all brake pad compositions for added cooling benefits. Magazine testing used wave rotors in combination with Galfer HH pads for optimum performance.

The brake system stays cooler and in contact with the rotor surface. This provides better brake power and lever feel.
Their exclusive, unusual design gives a distinct look to your machine.
Universal right and left side fitments holes are dispersed in a uniform pattern instead of fan-like pattern, for added cooling features

Although the Wave Rotors were initially designed for weight savings, this will vary by application and may not apply.


Sport Bikes, Super Motard & Other Racing: The added amount of trailing edges gives the racer better brake response at first touch of the brake lever. The Sport Bike application rotors by Galfer are race-ready units that perform excellent on the street. Many top race teams in national and local super-bike races currently use Galfer’s rotors. When you are at the track, stop and ask any Galfer sponsored team what they think about these rotors. You’ll be amazed. It’s likely that you’ll meet a factory representative as well.

So, are there two different rear wave rotors. . .an early 919 and a later 919 versions??

Good question.
I would suspect that raybob1 has the newer version or alternate version that fits.
I'll have to look into it.

His also might be from "BRAKING"
Mine are from "GALFER"

I picked up a new Galfer set this week and the rear is just like raybob1's, which matches the front rotor design. Your rear is similar in design to my 600rr's. Hmmmm.

Great price. Great product. Highly recommend this guy! Get some HH pads too -- you won't be sorry.

Hey Bucky,

Didn't you also have the rear rotor's holes drilled out bigger?

I want to yank one of the front rotors off the ZX-11.. but the thing barely stops in time not to eat weeds, as it is, when I run at the Wendover Raceway.
