  • Skimming front discs

    Heyz, just wondering if any of you guys know a good shop/mechanic that'll skim motorcycle front discs as mine are a little warped. Discs seem nice and thick so not much wear there, but there just a little warped and its annoying braking at high speed. Bike is a 96' ZX7R

          as the guys say go see kamahl at causeway ...i just had mine done there (well sydney).. pressed flat and skimmed ... with new sintered carbon pads on .. they are fantastic ..
          Some say he eats sidchrome for breakfast

          Some say he only showers on even days of the week

          Some say he put an R1 motor in a coffee machine

          All we know is he's Hewie.

                thanx for the replies

                do the discs need to be removed from the wheel to do it and re-riveted?
                think i'll ring round 2 get em done. my front pads have ~20% left in em so i'll give em another thousand or so and do both at the same time.

                nick: thanx mate, aint after anything atm. Go for some EPC HH pads, i ran them in my RGV and they were EXCELLENT compared to other rgv brakes to say the least...

                    from wat i have been told .. yes and yes .. they will need to be re-riveted if u have them pressed flat ..

                      Talk to Motorcycle Masters. Mick works through them to straighten bent bik bits. I've never heard of pressing a disc flat. Mick straightens them manually which doesn't even require removal from the wheel.

                          Can they skim bike discs where they do car discs? Or is it a special machine for bike.
                          just wondering coz i can get done for free if thats the case

                            I'm not absolutely sure but I've been told no.
                            I'd be surprised if modern sportbike discs ever need skimming. They're so thin that by that time they're probably due for replacement.

                              Bike discs are made from a higher grade metal than car discs. ie harder. so would have to be a good machine i spose. as with pressing em flat i think the discs would just 'flex'. i'll talk with the guy from motorcycle masters, delt with him be4 and he knows his shit
