    Front brake rotors for 12-13 Speed 3R

    I ordered a new set of Brembo Supersport rotors for my 13 Speed 3R as I my factory rotors have developed a vibration under hard braking.(tried the usual fixes for this, time for new rotors) The rotors I received are for the standard bike it seems and are going to have to be returned.(wrong bolt pattern and offset).

    The problem I'm running into is that no one seems to know what will fit the 12-13 R model bikes. After doing more research than is healthy, mostly due to the alcohol consumption involved, I have reason to believe that the 2005-2007 Speedy use the same dimension rotors in every conceivable way. Can anyone confirm this or offer an suggestions for replacement rotors? I could just buy a set of OEM rotors, but for the price, it seems like I could make an upgrade. The Sunstar factory rotors lasted about 9000 miles.

    I have found these which I think will fit, but I've never heard of the vendor. They match up with what Brembo's website says, and are the same part for the 05-07 bike.(if you zoom in on the part# on the rotor you can reference it with Brembo's website) The price is certainly right and appear to be genuine Italian made Brembo Oro rotors.

    Any other suggestions welcome.

    Rip those death squeezers off the front of your bike. Like the old Harley guys will all tell you, those big brakes on the front wheels are dangerous, and really make your bike handle badly.

    Also, install some ape hangers and forward controls. For performance reasons.

    Yep, cleaned them with bolt and nut clamping them and turning w/ brake clean. I had the fork seals go abruptly on a long ride. Ruined the pads and probably the rotors at the same time. Cleaned everything with new factory Brembo pads. Same results. Might as well give it another shot though.

    You can resurface the rotors with sandpaper, and make sure you bed the brakes in

    Tried sanding and cleaning the shit out of them as well. I have heard of these rotors on the 12 and 13 going bad early. I'm ok with buying new rotors, but there's a lot of confusion as to what fits the PVM wheels.

    food for thought !!!!


    if the rotors between the 05-07 and the R 12-13 are interchangeable i wonder if the wheels will be as well? ... i know the rear needs to swap the carrier and a few other things.

    Well I cleaned the bobbins again and it's definitely better. Possibly even liveable. I'm going to waste money on a quick shifter and a 520 conversion and give the rotors another handful of rides and a track day. This bike ****ing rules. Been riding all the new bikes and this one still does it better.

    Go out and bed the brakes in well. I promise it will make a difference

    Just have done that exact thing. it's much better. Light pressure on the lever at around 70mph makes an unpleasant vibration, but otherwise it's fine. I'll buy some other upgrades until these pads are trashed.
