One of the great things about motorcycles is that nearly every part is crafted with visibility in mind. Take brake rotors, for example. On most vehicles, drivers have no clue what their brakes even look like. But motorcyclists don’t just appreciate the stopping power of their rotor; they also can proudly display it since it’s a highly visible component.
Brake rotors – also known simply as discs – serve a vital function in stopping a motorcycle, and while style is important, it is only secondary to braking effectiveness. For example, many of the rotors we carry have holes drilled in them. While this can create an interesting visual effect, the primary function is actually to prevent the brake pads and rotor from overheating when they are in contact with one another (which consequently makes the brakes less effective). It can also help with water displacement.
Brake rotors work because they are attached directly to the wheel. When the brake pads are compressed on the rotor, it slows it down. This also decelerates the wheel and therefore the entire bike. In most cases, the front wheel’s rotor is what creates the necessary deceleration to slow the bike. However, the back wheel’s rotor is also important as it creates the balance required to maintain control of the motorcycle.
We’ve assembled a selection of brake rotors that perform well and complement your bike’s appearance. They are designed to fit each bike uniquely, and as such they are crafted with that bike’s style in mind. To see what is available for your machine, simply enter its make, model and year on this page. You’ll find rotors for everything from a Harley-Davidson® to a Ducati to a Honda.

**KLR 650 Owners LOOK no further** Hey guys, @dirkbike here. Have you been reading the KLR forums, trying to figure out how to get your front brake to work? Don't get sold by the eagle mike fan boys and spend hundreds on the SV caliper conversion and mods, it's not worth it. It would be interesting to see actual data regarding the increased stopping power, but I'd guess it's somewhere between 30-50%. It's night and day difference bolting this on. I've had to emergency brake in sudden dead stop freeway traffic, with a fully loaded KLR, to the point I was questioning if I was going to stop in time or dart off into the emergency lane and hope to god all works out- not a fun feeling or scenario to be in. I know with out a doubt, I would have darted off into the shoulder and gravel if not for this. It's one thing to pull off into the shoulder in a car, but another on a two wheeled machine that slips out under braking and gravel, which is typically what you find on the shoulder. I would recommend this as one of the must have's on the KLR if you're more than just an occasional rider.Read All Reviews

I almost went with an oversized rotor set up but for half the cost with this rotor & the EBC Carbon X pads I’m happy with it! Gives the rear end better control when braking & a better feel over stock. They could have designed the rotor a little better to fit the hub cleanly. But overall a good purchase. I’d buy this rotor again when it’s needed.Read All Reviews
