Okay, I decided to do it too.  EBC rotor and SBS ceramic pads.  I took the advice above and used the deburring tool on the holes before installation.  Here's how she looks now.

make a cool buzzzzz? after a bit of break in to grind off the light galvn on the friction area I also used stainless pigment paint on all areas of the rotor that the pads do not touch - the salt air would light flash rust the low carbon steel fairly quick

I know I can sure appreciate not wanting to do anything that might cause the "Loss of a buzz"

Where does Stainless pigment paint come from? I guess things like that are common down there. I've never heard of such. All I have in my rust killing arsenal is phosphoric acid, to turn iron oxide into iron phosphate.Ospho, from Kelley Moore in a quart jug. I tried the paste once. No good.. I hope you are able to tell a difference when the pads are bedded. If so, Holler&, I will do it for the girl. Thanks.

Haven't really had a chance to ride her since.  It was on to other chores...  So the galvanizing doesn't help against rust, huh?  That's a shame.  Maybe the fact that I'm not at the coast will make mine a less likely offering to the rust gods.  We'll see.  If not, I guess I'll have to try some paint too.

I also had the afterthought that I should've rebalanced the whole affair after changing rotors.  I would think the rotor should be pretty consistent throughout but you never know.  What think you all?  Should I remove the wheel and rebalance it or is the rotor change unlikely to have any noticeable effect?

take it out for a spin, if it vibrates rebalance. if it doesn't vibrate dont rebalance

i believe it's called trial and error

Yup, no noticeable vibration at all.  I didn't notice any buzzing either but then my MAC exhaust may not be quiet enough to pick it up.  Stops like a champ but I'm not sure how much of that is due to the rotor and how much is the ceramic pads.

Talking about a fancy brakedisk. Look what our Finnish Savage Friends made!!

Try to reach someone of the Finnish forum who speaks another language besides Finnish who can give me pore details.

Also some pictures of a wrecked Savage engine:

Same rotor i'm using.  So far I love it.  I changed out the pads at the same time and it's making for a very good combo!!

Hey, I know it's an old post but better'n starting a new one just to axe a question.
What did you guys use to deburr the holes on the EBC rotor?
Manual tool, bit for a drill or something fancier y'all use in a lathe or something?
Thanks.

EBC rotors come drilled, I don't think anybody deburrs them after that.
