Galfer rotors are top quality. Improves braking modulation (feel and control). Does not shorten stopping distance.

I have the rear wave rotor on my L, the front one they list for the L does not fit.
Looks cool, but doesn't work any better than the stocker.

The big pluses for wave rotors is that they clean out quickly and disapate heat better.

Well, I should have listened to you. The front doesn’t fit. I’m looking for a FRONT wave rotor for a 2007 Honda XR650L with stock hub/rim. For some reason, the front rotor for this bike, as listed in the Galfer catalog part # DF017, does not fit. Anyone aware of any other rotor that will fit?

What do you mean it 'does not fit'? Most Galfer rotors are oversize, and need a caliper reloator bracket.

The bolt pattern is different. The front Galfer bolts are spaced about 3 3/4 inches apart, as measured from the center of the bolt holes. The holes on the stock rotor are closer to 5 inches apart. The diameter of the rotor itself is correct, as is the thickness. The rear rotor fits fine.

oversized is what makes the big difference, save money from buying a stock size and get a larger rotor kit.
