Is it ok do go with some aftermarker brand? I really cannot find anything and the guy at the shop said they cost like $300 each for the front!

I have a 2002 YZF 600R not R6 though, any suggestions?

And I dont understand how my rotors are bad i only have 7k miles on my bike and i dont ride that hard. Can i still ride with warped rotors?

Also the reason i asked them about the brakes was because the front was biting at a certain point. IE i would brake and at one point it just bites alot harder than i should.

If you're looking for cheap you can find good sets on ebay. Either used stock or aftermarket. I just purchased some wave rotors off ebay from a place in hong kong for $150. After being broken in, I found they are better than stock and look trick

I was told the same thing from guy at shop but i can't seem to find anything like this. All i can find is used rotors and shop guy said thats not a good idea. I can find R6 rotors but i don think R6 will fit my bike. Anyone know exactly? I know alot of things are the same but when i search R6 and 600R at online parts stores they give different sets so I figured they must be different?

I would love to get a set for $150! Could you point me to them?

Would these fit? http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/NEW-...001QQitemZ110262605921QQrdZ1QQsspagenameZWDVW

What do I look for to see if they will fit? they say they fit my bike years 96-00 but i didnt think my bike changed from 96-2004? http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Yamaha_YZF600R as shown here it sasy 96-2207 has same brakes.

I can't tell you they will fit for sure. Best bet is to call a dealer or search a parts catalog online to see what size and bolt pattern they are. Then you can see which ones are applicable.

"floaters" are what connect the carrier (mount) to the actual rotor. I would highly advise against full-floaters if you are just riding street. Full floaters allow for movement between the carrier and the rotor so that your rotors don't pivot under heavy braking thus greatly improving braking. The downside is that they require more maintenence/replacement (from my experience). Also if using full-floaters on the street, they will rattle everytime you go over an uneven surface (rather irritating).

But when it comes down to it, think about what kind of riding you do or plan to do and purchase accordingly. Remember that your brakes are one of the most important parts of your bike so don't go too cheap. Follow your heart and buy something that'll keep you safe

Ok cool, I am doing commuting type driving, sometimes going out with a friend and riding but no track or racing.

Who did you buy your rotors from on ebay? Im really worried about getting a bad product. And right now its either buy ebay or oems even though oems warped in 7k miles :(

Here's the link to mine. No problems yet, just took a while to break in. let me know what you decide

Man all the china sellers have the exact same thing, at least they look like it. I dunno what im going to do yet. But in one hand ebay could be an awesome deal with some nice rotors. But on the other it could just be added expense.
Looks like they worked out well for you. Im gonna talk to mechanic and see what he says first.

Anyone else try ebay china made rotors?

Oh yeah, whats the problem riding with warped rotors anyways? I really havent noticed anything besides my front brake grabbing to soon and hard.
