Which discs for CBR 1000RR?

Hello friends,
May I ask: Which front discs are you using if not OEM?
As far as I can see it is not possible to find aftermarket discs with only 4,5 mm as the original.
They are all minimum 5 mm thick.
If you could recommend a good place to buy it would be very much appreciated.
Best regards
Jan

No. They are too expensive for my limited budget. They may have been a bad example. Their Ceramic rotor cost $1100 USD for one (one the site I saw). The same company does offer an Iron rotor at $320 USD for one. They claim it saves 150 grams over comparable O.E.M. rotor.

I buy my parts from a vendor who is not a site sponser but I don't know if one of this site's vendors offers this product.
