Where to buy new front rotors?

2006 950 Adventure-S

My front brakes always need pumped up a bit, so Yesterday I inspected my front rotors for warpage. Yup, just as suspected, one is bad. Now, where do I find one? I usually go to Rocky Mountain for almost everything. No luck. (I swear they just had them listed online when I looked a month ago, shit....) Then tried CJ Designs site, didn't see anything listed. Need some help. Was hoping for aftermarket, since we all know the OEM front brake stuff isn't great.

But, if someone has a front right-hand rotor laying around in good shape, that they're willing to part with, I'm up for that as well. Just PM me. Thanks OC.

I bought the entire set from AOMC (KTM-Parts.com) recently.

These were the Warp 9 brand (bad name for rotors?) and came with a whopping 20% discount.

BTW: I bought them shortly after FakeName chastised me for rattling rotor syndrome...

My new Warp9's live up to their name...their warped.

Buy Galfer or EBC. Don't buy cheap rotors.

They had a sale on their Galfer wave rotors a couple weeks ago....

Bad to hear, but good to know. Thanks Chuck.

By that way, that didn't take long. You just got those.

What's considered "cheap?" Just because you paid more, doesn't make the rotors any better.

As well, buy from a reputable source. Whereas eBay may not have the most reputable sellers, you can trust AOMC/KTM-Parts.com.

Mine have held up great. You'll find a lemon in every product line from time to time.

When I see the above brands, the phrase "ass rape" comes to mind. Stock rotors are similarly priced.

I bought these about 8,000 miles ago. I was very reluctant and thought I'd probably regret it. However they work excellently and have shown zero rear so far. All stainless steel, nice looking and only took 10 days or so to come in.

The stock bolts will not work, I got new ones (shorter heads) at the local nut and bolt store.

I have Galfer rotors and stainless steel brake lines on my Kawasaki street bike and they made a big improvement in my braking.

Wow, I wondered about those Chinese eBay rotors. Glad to hear they worked out.

And good info about the stock bolts.
