Question Any GALFER Rotor Experts out there

Hey gang,
I'm trying to get some Galfer rotors for my '10 Adv ABS. I'm trying to find the correct part number. I have a line on some DF770FLW rotors. I think they are the correct ones, but when I went to KTM twins, they were talking out the inner portion of the rotor and the outer ring being parts from two different rotors put together to fit the ABS bikes. WTF.......when I punched in my bike model and year......forgot what site.......it said these rotors were a fit. Thanks for any insight. S-Rock

Here's some info from BDCW with a good pic of the side that can be enlarged showing all #s. Not affiliated just a good reference. Or, try calling Galfer for clarification. Very helpful with my questions but be specific about what your looking for.

Thanks SC, I looked at there's and it has a different part number. That is why I am a little confused. When I check the Galfer website and application the 770 is correct. BD has a different number on theirs. S

Guess it's probly best to call them. Best I recall they did change the parts #s somewhat for what is applicable but with the part #s all the same minus one for what you're referencing they'd probably work, but a customer rep could clarify.

I have them on my 2008 990 /abs
The only mod was to add a washer to move the abs sensor back a couple mms to that it clears the abs ring.

Galfer ABS Confusion

Hey guys. I think I might be able to clarify some of the ABS confusion. Yes th DF770FLW fits the ABS models except for one small important correction. The DF770FLW fits the side without the ABS sensor but and a modified version of the DF770FLW is needed for the ABS side simply because of the sensor. Modifications are necessary for the ABS side to mount up and be the correct measurement off the wheel so that you aren't making contact with your brake caliper. This is really important. Everything about your brake system is really important and should never be modified by any person who isn't a qualified engineer. We're lucky to have one at our disposal and that is why we were able to have new center carriers made to accommodate both the ABS guys as well as the Non-ABS guys. While we were at it we had him engineer a lighter aluminum carrier so you can have lighter than stock rotors. I hope that helps clarify any questions.

Thanks, Ron!

Are the Galfers less prone to loosening of the rivets? My rear (ok, the bike's) starting to sound like a trash can lid when I push it around.

I'm not sure what modifications are being referred to here.
The rotors mount like the stock ones. In the same location. There is no contact with the brake caliper not even close.
The only difference is that the abs ring sits on top of the rotor instead of being recessed. So the abs sensor has to be moved out by 2mms or so to not contact the abs ring. Inserting a washer on the abs sensor mount fixes that. It's a cheap piece of plastic, use a longer bolt.
A cheap fix if you ask me. And the rotors can be found cheaper too.

I have many thousands of miles on the bike with that setup and it works like before with the oem rotors..... Except it's better!

But to each his own, I guess

Thanks for the input gents, my brain hurts. I'm just gonna buy the WARP 9s from CJ and get on with my life. Anybody have these on their bikes? Comments good and bad would be appreciated. S

The warp9 are great too. You'll have the same issue regarding the abs ring though.

If you want more details, you can pm me and I'll shoot you some pictures
