Tarazon brake rotors

Post by Nosepicker »

Hi guys
Front brake rotors on my 99 Storm is getting a bit thin so I'm gonna try these Tarazon rotors out.
Got them at Amazon through a friend who buys all kinds of stuff there all the time :crazy:
I'll be fitting them and new SBS 622HS pads this coming weekend - if all goes well - and will keep you posted on how they work.
And if I don't... well don't buy Tarazon brake rotors :lol:

I use the same brake pads which I find work very well :thumbup:

Fingers crossed the disc's are good,

Got the new discs and pads fitted this weekend and rode a 200 km break in trip on my favourite b-roads.
Everything seems ok.
Stopped for a coffee and met a guy who - judging by his stories - invented Honda motorcycles amongst many other things :roll:
He commented on the new shiny discs and said: I can see you've got the right ten bobbin ones.
I had no idea what he ment but apparantly the early models were fitted with ten bobbin discs and later models with eight bobbin discs.
So he told me.
As my behind was starting to ache a bit from his rambling I finished my coffee and drove home.
Safe back in my shed I reluctlantly checked the old discs and they are actually with eight bobbins.
I didn't notice they were different from the new ones :oops:
Now, my Storm is a early model. I assumed the discs I removed were the OE ones from 1999. The bike has done 65000 km's, 48000 when I bought it.
Now, is it a pure coincidence that the aftermarket discs are with ten bobbins or was the guy who sadly talked more than he drank coffee right and my Storm has had the front discs changed earlier?

But what is your point, your concern? 8 or 10 bobbins makes no difference. If they work they work. If anything, stress and load will in effect be lessened as it's distributed through the additional 2 forks.

It's quite remarkable knowledge really, it wasn't Mac was it? Image
No bike (yet).

You had me checking the number of bobbins on mine :lol: mind you I was working on the bike at the time :wink:

I can confirm my bike has the OEM brake disc's still fitted, it has 8 bobbins on the brake disc's, year is 1999 UK model,

My '97 (early release '98 in the US) came with 8 bobbin rotors.

Thanks for your replies guys :wave:

Yellabell:
I agree with you, if they work they work, and I have no concern about the number of bobbins.
I did the trip alone so I guess I just needed to share the wierd experience with someone. So absoluteley poitless :roll: :D

Gilson:
Maybe Mac took a wrong turn somewhere on his trek to Devon this weekend? :lol:

Chris and Hawk:

Thanks for taking time counting bobbins :thumbup:

What's the verdict on the rotors and how do they feel with the SBS 622HS pads?
