Front rotor

I just noticed that my right side front rotor (as your sitting on the bike) is warped. Just wondering how much one of these should cost me? Also do you think I will be able to get just the one or will I have to buy a set? I'm not really looking at spending any more money right now. I just put about $700 into the bike over the last few weeks. I replaced almost everything on the front end and new tires. Anyway just looking for some info. Thanks.

Re: Front rotor

How did it get warped? You can take your chances on eBay ad hope you don't get another warped one, or buy them from Service Honda Home of the CR500AF - Honda Motorcycle Parts or ronayers.com.

Be forewarned, new rotors can run $300 each.

I'm not really sure. I did notice that my pads on that side are worn differently. One pad looks good but the other is almost completely gone. Since that one pad has so little life left in it, could that cause problems bleeding the system, like not getting a consistently hard brake lever?

Re: Front rotor

Are you even sure that the rotor is warped? You may need to rebuild your calipers if one side is sticking and causing the excessive wear to the pad. Regardless of pad wear, it shouldn't cause any problems with bleeding, unless you have a leak in the seal(s). If your lever isn't staying firm you probably have air trapped in the system.

I am extremely sure the rotor is warped. With that side caliper off the the wheel spins free and when looking from the front of the bike you can see the edge of the rotor sway. Also can riding the bike with the rotor like this cause any other damage, besides the pads? Could this cause the brakes to fail?
