I tried it as an experiment when I bent my stock one, it has worked fine for the last year. That year included a season of desert racing. It's not stainless but it only showed signs of suface rust when I was at Pismo dunes (on the Pacific coast) for a week.
Didn't see you where in Australia when I posted, maybe still a good deal if they ship there.

but if they work, why not
pity they dont ship to EU (maybe they do, just contacting)
I think stainless is not used for rotors, exact material type for quality discs is "X155CrVMo12" or "OCR 12 VN" and in original state it is quite soft (26 rockvels (HRC)) so it needs aditional hardenig up to 45 HRC

Beter mechanical advatage, less effort and more braking ability.
Larger disk surface, slight advantage in heat dissipation.
Rotor is larger thus more prone to damage, closer to the ground and edge is farther from the mounting hub.
If not included with the rotor an addapter is need to space the caliper out.
Not sure if the factory Yamaha brake line will work.
