  • ZX6R 1998 - Warped Rotors.

    Hey all,

    Earlier this week I noticed that my bike (ZX6R 1998) shudders when applying the front brakes, especially at low speeds.

    I just got off the phone with my mechanic and it seems that the front rotors on my bike are warped.

    I've found these ones online.

    I've had a quick read of the relevant threads on rotors for my model bike, but couldn't really see any specific brand/cost information. Are the above rotors a good model at a good price for ~660 AUD shipped? Ebay seems to have some really low cost chinese no-name options. I take it they are not a good idea?

    Cheers!

      Too much heavy braking would be my guess. Probably getting a bit thin, too.

        I'm not sure as of yet. But I think the rotors have been warped since I bought it ~2 weeks ago.

        I just got a quote from S3 Performance Parts:

        Not bad at all it seems. Thanks for the recommendation, it's quite a good price considering I was looking at 650 bucks for EBC's.

        Cheers!

                Thanks Emily I sold the CBR250RR to some dude about a week ago, then bought the ZX6R to prep up for my R class!

                How long to go till your R's? I haven't seen you around at the last few LNR's that I've been on, are you coming out on the next one?

                      Yeah, I'll be coming along for the MAD ride for sure, I'll make sure I say 'Hai'. Re: getting off topic, something tells me it's not you that she's talking about

                      I'll probably come along on the Spada as the discs have a lead time of 4-6 weeks :S

                      Cheers!
