I have ordered new Excel rims with Talon hubs for my new 450F. I want to have a full replacement set ready for winter with spike tires. Which brake rotors do you suggest?

Thanks guys, I will go for standard sized rotors though, since I want a quick and easy wheel swap without adaptors and having to invest in a double set. Any other suggestions? Maybe I'll try this, any experiences?

2 bolts would hold you back from awsome braking
from an oversized rotor???Check out Titax rotors!

Go BIG or stay home! :applause:

Oversized rotors can be a pain to deal with/install....they are also very expensive. I would suggest going with a Galfer "wave" rotor that improves braking power and lengthens the life of your brake pads without emptying your wallet. Cost is $165.

EBC oversized rotors are $150 retail... $125 from my dealer & they install as easy as a regular rotor.
