has anyone tried this oversize front brake kit off of ebay? is it worth the money, or just better off buying a braking or galfer rotor?

I have the galfer oversize front rotor and wouldn't suggest anything else. Its a huge improvement over stock.

I had the Galfer Tsunami on my 2011.. Very very good..

My Nephew ran that disc you showed on ebay last year on his yz250f last year. While the performance was quite good. the Disc itself wore rapidly compared to others on the market.

For the money, i think you'd be better getting the more durable Galfer kit.

For another $40 I'd run the EBC ($194) oversized rotor, not as costly as the Galfer ($266). Great stopping power out of the EBC, rotor wear wasn't an issue on my last one. I'd definitely buy another one if I was in the market.

Keep in mind the Galfer comes with new pads whereas the EBC doesn't, closes the price gap by around $20.

I've had good luck with the EBC oversized rotor as well.

I'm curious here..... Has anyone tried just a braided, stainless steel hose? Was it a noticeable improvement, if any?

I had braided lines on my last bike...didn't notice a ton of difference. better off going with a larger rotor. You will notice an immediate result.
