Well, that's one of them...

Here is the ebay link for the rear disc brake rotor!
Front Brake Disc Rotor Yamaha TW 200 Offroad motorcycle: eBay Motors (item 320592073475 end time Oct-17-10 20:25:13 PDT)

As I've said, the seller couldn't tell me what years TW200 that listing is for as he didn't know...

I bought a front and rear set of discs for a DR650 from these guys through eBay. Fast postage. The rear was perfect but the front disc was drilled incorrectly. When I informed them of this they said yeah Suzuki change things like bolts sometimes..And that was it. Despite the disc being advertised as fitting my model.

This is just my experience with them, may not happen to anyone else.

Looky here :thumbup1::

Fits straight on, the front requires countersunk bolts, otherwise direct swap.

Why do you want these?

If it's a fashion thing OK.

If someone has told you it will make the slightest difference in performance, 15 years working on brakes is telling me it won't. All those holes and cut edges are going to wreck the pads (which is why the sportsbike manufacturers went with this particular fashion), the last thing you want on an extented trip. The weight saving and cooling is fine if you intend to do 100 miles on a race track then bin the pads, but hardly what most riders really want. The cooling is a disadvantage on the road, we don't get a warm up lap before we might have to brake hard.

For overlanding you want plain old fashioned cast iron (or steel as second choice). Its the best material for cold braking (exactly what you need when taking an overloaded bike into city traffic first thing in a morning), the few grammes weight difference is nothing and as you'll be riding so often any corrosion will be left at the side of the road. The disc outer corrosion will just match the rest of the typically scruffy overland bike.

Hey Andy, thx for the point of view :smartass:

My rear was worn, so I needed to replace it. I hate the look of the stock discs, so yeah, its a fashion thing, a little bling =) The xt is the wrong bike to bouild on, if you want performance, so i agree with you.

I plan to reach 100.000km on the bike this year, i have around 16.000km to go, so that should test the discs a bit.....I'll update this thread.

I do everything from singletrack and enduro-ish races, to 700km interstate on a day, and sometimes a little of both....It does just fine :scooter:

Nice wave rotors!......just the thing I'm looking for to do a brake upgrade on my SuMoXT :thumbup1:

Jens Eskildsen 18 Jan 2011 18:14

Wheels mounted, look how nice and rusty everythin in the rears is, due to the killer salt hey use all the time. Oeh well, looks worse than it is, it can be wiped of with wd40 on a rag.

The discs themselves look nice tho':

Wave Rotors
I love the look of the wave rotors.

As you said Andy the difference between standard and wave rotors in temperatures would be pretty small in normal use. But that also means the negatives that you mentioned would also be pretty small in normal use. I have never had cold brakes be an issue on the road in normal use. You would have other problems like cold tyres before cold rotors became an issue I suspect. Two up fully loaded, first thing in the morning. All good

On the track, nothing but a good thing.

I'd be interested to hear feedback on how the wavy rotors have performed as I'm going to need to replace my CCM front rotor soon and aftermarket wavy ones are 1/3 the price of the OE replacement. Any comments, be they good, bad or indifferent, welcome

Jens Eskildsen 30 Jun 2011 00:14

Vando: Bumb what? Whatta ya wanna know?

backofbeyond: They work, dont think they're any better or any worce than oem. In the winter they got a hint of rust on'em where the pads doesnt rub. A diswasherspongde cleaned it right up, no biggie. I havent meassured them, but they seem to be holding up.

I like the looks, thats why I bought'em :scooter:

I can do stoppies if i force it and try to, but again, so could I with the stockers.
