I bought 2 for my zx9r, stainless steel good as original so dont rust.came from china in about 3 days, you have VAT to pay though but still really cheap...

Ive just had a look at their site and cant see any for a Tiger, but if you e mail them they may make you one.

 Mine looked ad good as the original ones. Better  than than cast ones you see on eBay . Check their web site , modern lathes etc,and lets face it , half the stuff I'm the shops come from there. Maybe hinckley too .:-)

Cracking in drilled discs is a known problem, fortunately it isn't too common, but worth keeping an eye on and replacing before it becomes a bigger problem  :006:

Would think twice about brake discs from China that aren't originals (that should put the cat amongst the pigeons), we get a lot of potential problems in our industry (  :264:  ) with poor quality stainless in particular from China and India (including some recycled stuff that already glows in the dark!)  :006:

Alu Alloy levers, etc, is quite a different kettle of fish though and since so many OEM parts for EU and US manufacturers originate in China I would be careful about being too disparaging  :164:

I'm with Indy though, you can't go far wrong with EBC, discs, or pads and after all is it really worth the risk, funerals are even more expensive  :155:

I know this an old topic   :481: but it fitted with my current issue.
Had a new rear tyre fitted this morning and the mechanic pointed out this on my rear disc/rotor  :005:


Cracks on many of the outer holes  :138:
Looks like im gonna have to pick up a new EBC disc?  :019:

Mileage is nearly 80k miles, using EBC HH pads.

Yes I have had a bit of a sticking caliper, I fitted a rebuilt caliper not long ago as original was buggered. .

Too much out of sight them rear disc/pads. Mebbe best we make a point of fettling them every 3k or whatever's reasonable for the conditions we ride in. I had problems with mine, ebc pads cracked, too much grease in slider pin/shaft.

Personally wouldn't use HH on the rear they are too hard, organic give better feel and are softer so don't wear the disc as quick

Personally I wouldn't use organic on the rear. Feel like wood and about as effective.

Disclaimer: I replaced all 3 disks at 30K as they were at minimum spec. At the time I was using organic in front and HH at the back. But for the purpose they serve I am happy to regard them as consumables.
Nothing is foolproof to a sufficiently talented fool.
