Can't go wrong with EBC so contact Chris at Trak tek, a forum sponser.

EBC is a good choice, Braking makes a good rotor also, they have been listed on eBay. I have a set of H-D floating rotors on my bike. Cost enters into the equation, floaters are expensive. And it's always better to support the guys that support this forum.
Even though I have the floating rotors on my bike I have to question them. All of the 04 and later bikes, and maybe the earlier bikes, have floating calipers so I'm not real sure how this total floating concept works. I like my floating rotors though.
Maybe someone from Trak Tek will jump in.

i do not believe any sporty has floating rotors YET EBC iron floaters are supposed to be better than stainless

You are right rodhotter about the rotors not being floating on the current offering of Sportys.
I stated that the calipers are floating on the current bikes. Was just wondering what if any benefit having both floating gave me.
Still waiting for some input.

the floating rotor is said to have a better contact with the pad EBC pro lite iron rotors are advertized to be 18% better only bigger rotors which are better heat sinks or more pistons $$$$ make better brakes but iron floaters should be a noticable improvement even when single doubles should be much better depends on your $$$$$ wallet and what you want

Best available are from Lyndall Racing Brakes. They have metal matrix compound rotors that only weigh 1.5 lbs, a number of different color & finish combos and are guaranteed for life. Pretty pricy though at $575 each. You said you wanted the best though. A couple other good ones are the Super Axe by Brake tech, and Brembo's.

I'm gonna say EBC because they have a great product and I think supporting our vendors is an honorable thing to do!
