    Any recommendations as to where to source a complete set of brake discs?  Just had the old girl MOT'd and had an advisory that all discs are quite warped...bugger!

    Thanks in advance  :047:

    Normally id say go OEM but this does seem to be a common occurrence so would probably try after market myself.

    Check out this thread.

    Thanks for the swift response and link.

    I have taken the plunge and ordered a complete set for €362 which is a lot cheaper than I can source in the UK.  My original set only managed 20K so I'm sure non-OEM can't do worse than those.

    Happy riding.  :305:

    The eBay option turns out to be more expensive with the €30 postage.  I got the 2 front and the single rear for €362 with postage whereas the eBay option would have been more.  Thanks for the info though - always happy to receive help  :002:

    On a connected subject, does anyone know the torque setting for the discs (in Nm if possible)?

    Thanks.
