  • Rear brake rotor

    I need to replace the rear rotor on my '02 1200.
    OEM is quite pricey, so I am considering Arashi.
    Has anyone fitted one of those on the rear of their 1200?

    Thanks,

    Bill.

    I've not used the Arashi brand specifically, but I did have a set of front brake discs on my ZX 14 that were made in China.

    Bought them off E Bay for $200.

    They worked fine. Especially for the money.

    I would not have any issues buying them again. Especially a rear disc.

    I have neither the time,or the inclination, to explain myself to a man, who rises and sleep under the blanket of the very freedom that I provide, and then questions the manner, in which I provide it. I'd rather you just say 'thank you' and go on your way.

      I bought an EBC for the ZZR1200, which I don't recall being very expensive. I've also used a Chinese wave rear rotor on the R1 with no problems.

        It seems that Arashi don't do a rear rotor for the ZZR.
        Any that they list for that model have 4 mount points, instead of the required 5.

        I have ordered one for the ZRX from them. OEM model numbers for rear rotors for the 2 bikes differ slightly.

          Should be fine, EBC list the same rear disc part number for both models.

            Thanks mate, good to know.
            I'll order the same Arashi rear disc as for the ZRX.

              I found a Galfer for the Zed but haven't pulled the trigger yet. When I contacted Arashi
              on the rear for the Zed, they said they weren't manufacturing it right now. I don't
              know if the ZRX one will work or not. I am going with the Arashi on the front though.
              Most of the other brands are just too $$$. Probably because they have to pay racers
              to put them on their bikes. From what I hear from the quality of the Arashi stuff,
              they work really well on the street. I am going with the Galfer braided lines on everything
              though. Brake stuff all new, then just ride.

                Charlie, when the Arashi rear disc arrives (slow boat from China) in 3 or so weeks, I will report back.

                For the front I went with these: click.

                  Did you notice that those are also made in either Taiwan or China according to the ad?

                  Also, $AU $150 is about $101 American.

                  So, both discs for around $200 plus shipping.

                  I see Chinese manufactured for $150 with free shipping.

                  Just saying.

                  Hope they work out for you.

                    Yes, that is correct. I already have a set on the ZZR, and they are fine. I've ordered a set for the ZRX.
                    They come from either Taiwan or China, but are then quality checked in Brisbane.
