Hey all,

I just got my Ninja 500R a couple days ago and the rear brakes are shot. Essentially no pad left and the rotor is heavily warped. Partzilla quotes over $200 for a new rotor but I'm trying to save money so I'm wondering where else you would recommend getting a new rear rotor from.

Thanks, Mr.Blu

I've already hooked up the OP with a rotor for 5 bucks.

For the record, I've run Volar chains before and they were the single worst purchase I ever made for my bike. I went through 2 in 8,000 miles each, which is confirmed garbage for an o-ring chain. I will never recommend that brand to anyone for anything, ever.

I had the same problem. New ones are expensive, so I bought a used one from eBay for $29.00 and it works great. It was a bit rusty when I received it, but looks like brand new after the first ride.
