Rear disc

Post by steeeve66 on Tue 25 Jun 2013, 4:57 pm

Hi all,
Before i spend 70 odd quid on an OE rear disc - does anyone have any experience of this one:

http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/HONDA-CB500-CB-500-1997-2003-rear-brake-disc-NEW-/281094869829?pt=UK_Motorcycle_Parts_13&hash=item41728f5345

It's quite a bit cheaper so thought I might give it a go...

Originals are stainless steel I think. That one says "Coated" billet steel.

I looked at that but it looked too cheap and nasty so decided against it.

This is a good price.

I was lucky enough to come across this on ebay http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/190840182919?ssPageName=STRK:MEWNX:IT&_trksid=p3984.m1439.l2649

If you don't need it straight away it might be worth keeping an eye out for a week or so.

Spooky! That's the one I went with in the end - and for the same reason; the one I was asking about looked a tad too cheap and nasty, I suspect it would have been a false economy...
Many thanks for the replies!

for anyone replacing their rear disk: when i removed the old one the mating surface on the wheel had reacted over time with the coating finish on the disk leaving a layer of 'oxide' substance on the wheel - you need to get this all off before fitting the new disk otherwise, like me, you'll have to take it all apart again after you realise the disk isn't seated correctly... hmm.
