I got one quote back so far... 1029 for two 6mm thick 304SS rotors - now I am waiting to hear what it will cost to machine them down to 5mm.

and then I'm also still waiting on another supplier...

From the agents they are about R3500 x2.

The guy working on my bike had some stainless steel disc's laser cut and he charged me R1000 a disc if I recall correctly. They are not floating discs, but they don't look bad at all and about 3000km later I can't complain.

Dis seker maar so, hy is seker ook geregtig om sy wins te maak vir sy moeite, maar ek stem 100% + se markup is seker bietjie fris. Ek was gedruk vir tyd en het nie tyd gehad om rond te shop vir ander opsies nie

Morning.

So Yesterday, I received my Parcel from China with my new rotors, pretty impressive delivery time.

Fitted my Fong Kong Kak last night. Also did new bearings and needless to say new pads as well.

I will provide feedback, unless I die because of the hate that the little Chinese sweatshop kids have towards white South African male motorcyclists.

Edit: wanted to post pictures, but fark me, its too much of a mission.

Out of interest, why softer stainless steel? Was there an option to use high carbon steel?

Interesting. Been doing some reading now and motorcycle discs are indeed made from stainless, where car ones are made from carbon steel.
I'm assuming it's got something to do with SS being more flexible.

No, it is because a bikes rotors will look kak if it oxidises. The stainless look better in an exposed location.

Thanks Pannas for posting pics.

I am very impressed with my Purchase. Obviously time will tell with the longevity, quality of the rotors, but after about 70km of mixed use today, it does the trick nicely.
