Wave brake rotors

Post by Scooter363y » Sun Jun 09, 2019 4:39 am



Can anyone help me with this. I would like to put a set of the wave style brake rotors on my goldwing. I have seen pictures of this but cannot seem to find the part number . If someone knows the brand and part number please share it with me!

Thanks cruiser
I just ordered a set today

I just got back from a trip to the dragon and the diamondback. While taking a break I noticed the crack in the rotor carrier not a good thing. I had a not so good feeling the last part of the trip.

Thanks for the tip

Good Luck with them. As I said, I've had no trouble with mine. They work well and look great on the bike.

I believe those all come from China with Chinese hit and miss quality. I've know some to pulsate while others have had problems with them being extremely noisy.

Like said before, I've had no problems with mine. I wore one tire out so now using a wheel with a reg set of rotors on. When this tire wears out I'll be switching back to the wheel with the wavy rotors again.

Thanks for the tip

They are working out just fine. Just like stock no better or worse just a whirring sound now when I brake. I get questions when I stop about them.

I've never noticed a sound. Of course my hearing isn't the best. You got a bonus. :mrgreen:
