I didn't want to go cheap this time... Especially on the brake discs! God knows what can happen if the brakes fail: could cost a lot to fix the bike, or fix me!

Anyway other discs, like original ones, or even ones made in China aren't that much cheaper, and good looking, and in one place (from one supplier).
So I went for these.

I'm not guaranteed, but the disc might need 8mm bolts? Then what: should I re-thread the hub? Or it it just bolt's head that's 8mm?

Quote:

Rotor Diameter 282mm
Rotor Thickness 4mm
Inner Clearance 132mm
Bolt Centre 150mm
Bolt Diameter 8mm
Weight 0.98kg

Jens, I was expecting your reply earlier
I wanted to ask where did you bought your discs? I could not find that info on the forum...

I might get the bolts like that in my not-so-local hardware store (I'm living in a town of 2500 people, so limited demand and supply for such kind of stuff...) but I would trust harder bolts more.
Also, how is your wavy discs and brake pads holding on? Has the wear increased?

Im pretty sure my front rotor uses 8mm countersunck bolts, I'll check upon that.

I recall the rear using normal 6mm bolts. I got the discs from ebay, I believe they were sent fra Australia.

They're wearing very nicely, almost no wear.

Nice to hear that!
Well I thought they are the same, as I can see the product code on your discs in the photos, and it looks like to be the same as in S3 Performance catalog.

Got some bad news from the seller... Quote:

Unfortunately we have sold out of one of the discs (DBFSDT285) that you ordered. We will have more stock in about eight weeks time but we will try and get production completed a bit earlier.

Eight weeks?!?!?!?! They are out of stock for the rear disc, but I mainly need the front one... The rear disc could wait, but the shipping is still the same (60AUD). Don't know what to do

they'll have to ship the rear disc at their own cost.... unless they'll wait the 8 weeks to send you both discs!

My "China" disc is doing very good still looks brand new and I always use the front brake, and mostly never use the rear brake (only on offroad I use the rear and not the front) so I can't see why you went with those guys from S3 performance...

I'll be surely buying the other disc, the rear disc that is, from China..
They are most likely made in the same place but the S3 performance ones have their logo laser itched...

Yeah, they want to wait the eight weeks to ship both discs.

I still haven't received a reply from them, but if I can't get those discs shipped separately at the cost I have already paid for shipping of both discs, then I think I'll get a refund.

What I will do then - I'm not sure.

I think I'll buy the rear disc from China, although no one on eBay ships them to Lithuania, so I'll need to talk to the sellers.
S3 Performance states that the discs are made in Australia, and as a company makes their product they try to make it as good as possible. Chinese don't have the responsibility for their product though.

But the biggest problem is the front disc: I need it 282mm in diameter. Also, rear and front discs should look like a set, not like random discs bolted on...

So S3 Performance discs are looking like a set, and the Chinese rear disc matches by the looks. But there's no front disc that I found looking like it should.

Option No. 1:
For the front Disc Brake Rotor Front XT600 and XT600 95-03 Tenere 91-98
the disc they have in stock
For the rear Front Brake Disc Rotor Fit For Yamaha TW200 TW225 200/225 | eBay
but I have to get it shipped to Lithuania.

Option No. 2:
For the front Disc Brake Rotor Yamaha V-Star 1100 XT600 Virago XV250 | eBay
For the rear Yamaha XT 600 E 90 Disc Rear Kyoto Wavy Parts at Wemoto - The UK's No.1 On-Line Motorcycle Parts Retailer
but they don't look too good, and the front one is expensive.

Anyone has any idea on the front disc?

ask for a refund on the rear brake rotor and partial shipping costs and get the disc from somewhere else...

Thanks Vando!

Now I know some more models that uses a disc like that!

I haven't received a reply from S3 Performance, maybe because of the weekend. I think I'll ask for a refund... Or buy the front one from S3 P. and then a rear one from China!

So, if I use the smooth round disc for the front, like Front Brake Disc For TDR125 XV/XV S125 250 SRV 250 NEW | eBay , what rear disc would match and look like a set? Sorry for being picky for the looks

Option No. 3:
For the front V-MAX 1200 V MAX 1200 Rear brake disc 130 W | eBay
nice wavy one, thanks Vando for finding a model!
For the rear Front Brake Disc Rotor Fit For Yamaha TW200 TW225 200/225 | eBay
or
Yamaha XT 600 E 90 Disc Rear Kyoto Wavy Parts at Wemoto - The UK's No.1 On-Line Motorcycle Parts Retailer (but doesn't look as bad-ass as the one above).

Option No. 4:
For the front Motorbike Rear Brake Disc YAMAHA GTS1000 FJ1100 1200 FJR 1300 V-MAX 1200 XV1700 | eBay
For the rear ??????????

Cheers!

And all other sellers from eBay for that disc replied:
Hello,
Sorry,we don't ship to Lithuania .
Best regards
Lin

All of them "signed" as Lin, so it's one person everywhere selling the disc.

What next?

Thank you Jens!

That's a beautiful set of brake discs! I'll get a refund from S3 Performance and buy these

I've tried searching eBay.de but unsuccessfully, probably because in my mistake in spelling German words...

Bought these discs from Germany that Jens has found

The seller has listed that for extra 20EUR he can supply better quality discs, quote:
"Brake disc are non original discs, but out of a highly alloyed steel.Racing approved. Discs have a thickness of 4mm, otherwise it is wrote. For 15 Eur more I can alternative offer the disc in racing quality that means original steel, especially heat treated and plane grinded of a tolerance less than 0.01mm."

So I'll have to wait a few days till he gets the front disc so he can ship it to me (guess what? Out of stock too, haha!). At least a few days, not a few months...

Also waiting for my money to be transferred back from S3 Performance.
