Re: front brake discs

Some people are happy with buying the cheapies off of eBay. I would suggest doing a search on the forum as it has been discussed.

As for where to buy OE parts, that depends on where you live. Where it is cheap for me may not be cheap for you depending on shipping charges.

Re: front brake discs

Personally I would just fit original Honda discs, you are guaranteed they'll fit and they'll work. Just phone a couple dealers and check on eBay, they do pop up new and unused.

Re: front brake discs

Just know that the OEM size for your RR5 is 310mm which is compatible with the RR4. I'm going thru a fiasco because I decided to fit Arashi rotors and discovered the style I want, the seller was unable to get in the size I need.

-2006 CBR1000RR- Jardine RT-1 CF, GP Shift rearsets, GP Suspensions 20mm revalve, Penske 8987 triple clicker
-2002 CBR600F4i (was mine and now hers)
Ohlins, Racetech, Showa custom Suspension

Because 12,000 RPM makes me feel better

310mm, 320mm and 330mm can be used on 04-07 forks and brakes... Just use right size spacers....

Re: front brake discs

Getting and swapping said spacers then becomes the game. No thanks for me. In the case of the OP, maybe. The OP will save 1.2lbs on the change.

Your forks have 5mm spacers between forks and brake calipers. Put there by Honda when it was put together at factory. Take them of and you can use 310mm discs. Get similar 10mm spacers and you can use 929-954 330mm discs...
