Re: SC28 Models

Was probably a bit rude of me not to post pics, but was working fast that day to get everything done and didnt take pics. Cant give any real world feedback on performance, as being a squid who just sort of zips around town and stuff i havnt exactly been testing my brakes to the threshold of failure!!
Anyhow here's how the rotors look, the colour's a bit loud but now im used to it i dont mind it, and the anodising on the supersprox sprocket (which went on that day too) by happy coincidence is the exact same finish!

Re: SC28 Models

Actually now they are pretty much bedded in they feel great, and no more studid swooshing noise. Actally quieter than the oem ones!?

They're noisy too - only been around the block yet though. I dont think they're any lighter than standard either.
My opinion - the oem ones might be better.
Glad they fit, I was going to bump the thread to see if you got them. I wouldn't worry about the 1mm. It's not an interference fit so you should be good.

Re: SC28 Models

^Its good to know im not going mad then.
From my searchings, 94 thru 96 or 7 (dont quote me) ran the same discs, except US which was 95 through to the same as everywhere else

Re: SC28 Models

Yeah I guess it's wait and see. I just went to Partzilla and looked at the 93/94 fiche and it included 95 which is not right. For 93/94 the fiche had only one part number for left and right. Which is wrong in my opinion. Then when you go to 95 it lists each disk with a separate/different part number for each, and specifies left and right. I think that is totally backwards, but you would have to actually order those stock disks to really find out. I think I posted something about this in another thread. I'll try and find it and post it here.

From "yes it is the 17" conversion again...."

It would seem I measured the inner diameter of my 93 disks' hub area and found this:

"Now due to Garrett's post, I went and measured the inside diameter of the 93 discs. Yes they are a 62mm hub bore. The NC30/VFR discs I used on the VFR wheel did swap right over, but measure 58mm. I never questioned it, because I never took my 93 discs off the wheel so I never new the difference. Wow I feel like an ass. The 93 discs won't work on the VFR/NC30/F3 wheels, you need those discs. Unreal.

It seems this 17" nonsense is never ending."


Which to say is a little different than what I've been saying here, although not that far off. The inner diameter is bigger than that of the VFR wheel I used, but in checking the fiche for the VFR they use the same rotors as the 96-97 US blades. So the 95 had proprietary rotors? Seems weird when all the offsets and calipers are all the same from 92-97. Now I'm very intrigued to see what you get.

Re: SC28 Models

Ok well the seller has changed the order to the 95 discs, hoprfully they fit. But ebc dont do lefts and rights, makes me think that if the pre 95 boys go ebc they should order one 95 disc? Dunno, the ebc websites motorcycle parts catalogue was down, which would've probably made things a lot easier

So apart from accomodating the speedo drive, are there any other differences between the 94 and 95 brakes?
As far as I know there are no other differences. The offset is the same, the calipers are the same, the 296mm outside diameter is the same, and the forks are the same (except the 95 RRS has compression adjustment as you mentioned). The only difference is the the wheel. So I guess we'll just wait and see when you get the disks in.

Wow, had no idea. I just figured the margins and cost would be the same, or close, but not that drastic. Ok then, order from the U.S. it is


And Squid, here are the pics, although without the micrometer on them the illusion is they look the same, but trust me they're not.

To be accurate and answer your question about what you need for your Aus 94 would be tough. If you post your VIN we can verify what the year designation is. If it's an S then the likelihood of the U.S. 95 stuff working should be good. But to make an educated guess I would say the U.S. 95 RRS model would be a reasonable choice in parts.

Keep in mind that this is a twenty-year-old bike, lots of bits might not be original now so try to confirm what components you actually have before ordering parts based only on the model.

I agree. Make sure you put up some pics when you change out the rotors. I may be in the market for some next year.
