The new parts are just as likely to fail as the old ones. I haven't heard of anyone needing to redo the "fix". I did mine when it was 4(?) years old. No problem to date and the engine has been torn down twice and I've never changed back to "new" parts.

The SM rotor is the same size as the RM and most "street" bikes.

Bikes are like women. What you think you want, and what you want, change after the first ride.
