Metalgear Brake Rotors?

Discussion in 'Technical and Troubleshooting Torque' at netrider.net.au started by sparz, Jun 3, 2011.

  1. Hey guys,

    My Brother needs a new front brake rotor disc and rear pads for his gpx250. I was looking up the genuine kawasaki parts and they are about $400. :-O

    I did a little bit of searching on here and someone mentioned Metalgear.

    The front brake rotor is only $90. Anyone used them know if they're half decent?


  2. I have used them and they are ok. I had them on my 636 and they worked fine. I only had it for about a thousand K's after fitting them so I am not sure of their life span.
  3. I just put metal gear pads on my Across, they seem to be fine. You wouldn't want to be putting too much money into a GPX anyway. What i've heard is that Metalgear stuff works fine, just has a shorter service life which i think is still irrelevant considering how cheap they are.
  4. mine had metalgear fronts when i bought it and they're awesome, now has a metalgear rear too. definitely recommend
  5. Sweet guys. Sounds good.

    Considering its only a 2 fiddy, i guess they shouldnt be getting too much wear :p
  6. their warehouse is in brendale

  7. Like this thread, was thinking of replaceing my Daytona front discs with metal gear rotors/discs...

    -posting on phone; spelling likely fukd
  8. They had a good rep. Noticed they on ebay now and reasonably priced.
    Metal gear sprockets years ago used to cost a bomb, but they were supposed to last twice as long as any other brand they claimed. I don't know what they are made of now either. High carbon steel? Try planet disk or awesome disks, same sort of deal.
  9. oh wow, i was going to order them online..... I live less than 5 minutes from brendale hahaha!

    Thanks for pointing that out
