Default Front Brake Rotor Options?

I might need new from Brake Rotors PN# 1911624-266
For a 2012 XR, Looked and GADZUKES!! Polaris is Real Proud of those guys!!

I'm not after bling or expect stock certificate with them, just Brake rotors. The price is pretty high in my opinion.

So what options do I have for a replacement?

I reject your reality, and submit my own!

2012 Cross Roads, Utopia Drivers Backrest, Victory Passenger Backrest, Tall Windshield, Lowers, Mirror Extenders, 3m Clear Paint Protective film.

Why would you need replacements? What happened to the originals?

I think most brake rotors for motorcycles are expensive

What sort of mileage has your rotors to a state of being worn to undersize? What pads are you using that wear your rotors?
Switch to Lyndalls pads theyre not
nearly as aggressive on rotors.
Oh and if your rotors measure up legally undersize then Paulie of Honda East Toledo is the best cheapest source of new originals.

Has anyone seen a single over size rotor kit for the Vegas?

Are you talking about these oversized rotors? I wonder if the mounting points are the same as other models?

I have the Arlen Ness rotors as shown in the above picture.

They work great and do reduce the effort required for a given braking response.

There is a supplied bracket that moves the stock caliper to the necessary position for the larger rotor. Very simple 1 hour job to install, does require removal of the front wheel. Does not require any re bleeding of the brakes.

I suppose it would be prudent to put on new pads if the pads you have now had a significant amount of miles on them. I put the new rotors on when the bike was almost brand new.

But make no question, I solely put the larger rotors on for looks only.
To me, they look great and that is all I wanted. The stock system works just fine, again, just for looks.

Got them from Witch Doctors, about 5 bills or something?

Everybody has their preferences on what looks good, for me it works.
