New Fancy Brake Rotor
10/26/05 at 20:31:52
 
Installed EBC #3017LS tonight - it's certainly a heaver wider rotor not much time on it yet to see if it makes any difference - I did fell some ragged edges where it
was drilled - light sanding took care of that - I can hear a little buzz as the pads pass over the holes - kinda cool.

Had this rotor installed. Forgot to deburr the holes.
Eat the brakepads within 100 km. But surely looks nice and the brake action was supper.

I remembered you had said the rotor showed up needing some finish work - that it did - saved me trouble - thanks

Should it be the other way round, on my EBC discs the holes go from inside to outside with rotation.

could be - I'm seem to see them both ways - the only decision I used was where the part number was stamped and I put that inward.

Both My discs are asymmetric and would only go that way round.

went to garage and had a look, the Kaw and gold wings are inside to outside sweep, the Honda intercepter drilled and groved outside to inside, most seem to have a V pattern and do not sweep at all.

This one will go either way - take about 10 mins to change - may flip it and hope I don't loose the cool buzz! - more pressure more buzz.

May change it over tonite - more important on the KLX so far as I can tell - the inside to outside sweep is ment to clean mud and junk off the pads and fling it away from the hub.

I asked this of the EBC tech folks,

Since this rotor will fit either way does it make any difference if the holes start on the inside And sweep to the outer edge of the rotor going forward - or the other way around - leading Hole at the outside and sweep toward the axle ? Thanks

The response was



You have it correct !

The first inner hole hitting the pad first, and sweeping out from there !

Although it really does not make the much difference, it is the way EBC intends for the disc's to run !
