machining rotors???

Discussion in 'Technical and Troubleshooting Torque' started by Sir Skuffy, Feb 4, 2008.

  1. Hey all,

    Is this possible and is there anyone that does them?

    Thanks in advance

  2. Maybe.

    A lot of bike rotors appear to be a bit thin to be able to do it. However, manufacturers specify a minimum disc thickness and as long as you can stay above this (with an allowance for wear) I don't see why this should be a problem.

    Any brake specialist should be able to do the job. I had a good look at the brake lathe at TAFE a few months ago and I couldn't see why you wouldn't be able to do bike discs on it.
  3. Yeah, Planet discs in Ringwood do it.
  4. It has been said that a dial gauge and use of a mallet with care, can straighten a warped disk,

  5. I'd like to see that!

    I might have to have a go with my new and most likely warped rotors for the R1 :(
