Are you sure you want "cheap rotors"?

Mandatory VFR pictures.

EBC would probably be the least expensive quality rotors. About $450 for all three from cyclebrakes.com

Me getting some at Road Atlanta. as much as I'd like to move on, I'm very attached to this bike. It doesn't hurt that I've sorted the suspension as well.

So, I just realized I paint my bike at the beginning of every season.

Shortly after I got it, first big cross state trip - 2008


Had a crash after that trip and painted it black - 2009


Tipped over a few time, and realized satin black is hot as hell in the summer. Also, no one see's a satin black bike at night. Went to white - 2010


Got bored with white, tipper over a couple more times. Decided Naval Blue with gold wheels. - 2011

Drinking the KoolAid

Just purchased a Red 02 Vtech with 15 k on the clock. Purchased from a 61yo preacher. He had owned quite a few motorcycles.
Had the front and left side plastics repainted from PO drop.
Kinda dig the Vtech at 7000 plus rpms.
Now for some luggage, possibly heli-bars.

What a huge upgrade from an old Concourse. The buzz on that bike rattled the teeth out of my head.

Had one - 96 VFR750, best bike I ever owned, pretty much fully farkled w/ Staintune, dynojet, fork springs, steel lines - green pads, Corbin, Givi Trunk, mirror extenders, Heli's, datel vtm,TM, mostly from tips found on the old Wisc CSU forum.
However now have moved on to an MX5 and started farkling that - almost as much potential to improve as a VFR. Soon will be selling riding gear and misc parts as MX just works so well and easier. pic of VFR att.

Just curious, what did you do to the suspension? Mine is sooo worn out I've taken my bike out of service for safety reasons. When I go though it I'd like to make it better than new. Any advice?

The prices are in range. I found a 1999 with under 8k miles for 2900. I pick it up in the morning.
