New front rotors, suggestions please.

So I have 112,000 kms on my 09 F800GS and wow are the front rotors loose. They have taken a beating and so no complaints but I am wondering what my best option is for replacement.

Anyone have experience with these Galfers? http://www.galferusa.com/finder/images/DF664CEWI-D.jpg

Motoriley has them, I've seen them a few times in his youtube videos. You could PM him for his opinion if he doesn't respond here.

I have a pair of Braking (WL101L and WL101R) that I really like, floating and wave. They were cheaper too (I remember less than 400 for the pair). Better initial grab, doesn't scare the crap out of me, and the progressive feel is awesome as well. The pads are wearing faster, but not at any crazy rate.

I went with a non riveted type rotor and have not had any problems with warping. They're a lot less noisy as well.
They are Lucas rotors, and I think I got them through either Twalcom (USA) or Wunderlich.
PM me if you need help in purchasing some from the road.

~~ Just did a quick search and can't find them anymore. Not sure what to suggest then. ~~

Thanks for Bayner for the offer of help. Going to put the new rotors on in Spain when the get the bikes there in early march so sourcing shouldn't be an issue.

Thanks for the advice, a little pricey but I generally like Galfer, the direction I am leaning at the moment.

Got those with new wheels from Woody... Just bought a replacement for the rear... They are great!

Thanks, if Woody puts them on his wheels they have got to be alright.

Had the Galfer wave rotors on my Zx14rr, absolutely loved them. Based on my experience with them, would certainly have them again and recommend them.
