Replacement Front Disc advice please

Recommended Posts

Hi all

 

I need to replace the front discs on my 2014 VFR1200F and was wondering what make/model would be recommended?

 

The OEM brakes are outstanding so not necessarily looking to upgrade, just looking for quality replacement that at the least maintains the awesome stopping power. Also, they need to be available in the UK. Current choices appear to be OEM, EBC X-Series, Brembo and Galfer (too expensive).

 

Cheers.  :beer:

I bought Galfer, as I found one on Amazon for $75, but had to pay full price for the other ~$275. I ended up using them on my RC51 instead, as they do not have the ABS mounting holes. The EBC are the cheapest, unless yo go with Bike Master or Arashi, which I'm sure are both from China. Braking sells a set too, but they are almost $500 for the pair....expensive, but better than the $700 for the stock versions...

 

Be careful, as I found out with mine, even though they say they fit the 1200, you may have to drill ABS ring mounting holes, which is simple, but should fit the bike as stated...
