So I need a new rear rotor and I figured I might as well do both sets if I'm going to upgrade to a floating rotor. I know most people like EBC but has anyone tried the Russell True Floating rotor? J&P has them for about $167.

Never tried one, never installed one. It's a 420 SS rotor with a chrome center, spring loaded buttons so it's quiet. I say, if you like the way they look, then go ahead and get them. Any floater is better than the stock rotor.

I will match that price and you will get it from a board sponsor!! :)

The Russell rotors are awesome BTW and provide a lot better stopping power compared to stock rotors.

Cool. You were the first place I looked for brakes but I didn't see them in your catalog.

Unfortunately we couldn't put everythng we wanted in our catalog as it just gets too expensive.

But we sell Progressive suspension components as well as Russell and EBC brakes. I also can get any Screaming eagle parts folks might want plus much much more.

If you are looking for something either put a post in our section or call me and I will see what I can do.

Don't want to hijack the thread, but I have a question on floating rotors. I have the SE full-floaters on my bike, a set of Galfer floaters on a Guzzi V11 EV I used to own, and a set of Brembo full-floaters on a Ducati Superlight I had about 10 years ago. To me, the Brembos were "true" full-floaters, in that you could grab the rotor and shake it back and forth. Couldn't do that with the Galfers or SE rotors, but they still call them full-floaters. Guess under braking pressure, they could actually "float", which helps to maintain more positive caliper contact? Being able to shake the Brembos, IMHO, were a sign of "true" full-floaters, not the "semi" floaters like the SEs or Galfers?
