    Brake Rotor replacement

    My Trophy has 70,000 miles and have gone through a few sets of brake pads. First set of pads were OEM. Following sets of pads were EBC.  I dont have a brake problem other than i can now feel the scoring and wear in the rotors. Not unusual for the miles? I would be happy to replace them with OEM rotors. BUT, does anyone have expierence with an alternate brand of rotors that they can share. Adding better stopping performance is never bad.
    thank you

    Just curious :  How deep do the grooves appear to be ?

    BTW,  Apparently there is nothing wrong with using EBC pads.  My local BMW dealer only sells EBC pads instead of the OEM BMW pad's.

    I like to use Kevlar pads since they are a little softer.  I have had no problems with them and probbaly are a little easier on the discs.   I know a guy who using them on his Concours C-14 on track day and said he hasn't seen any performance difference between the Kevlar pads and sintered pads.

    I have the EBC Wave Rotors on my 2015 with 99.5k miles.  They have worked well and don't suffer from the bobbin problem.

    I'm pretty sure this is the stock #:  https://www.amazon.com/EBC-Brakes-VR817BLK-Black-Vee-Rotors/dp/B00CAYBD8W

    I bought some used speed triple rotors off ebay.  No more pulsing.  I still have the original Trophy SE front rotors with about 15k miles on them.  Should not have had to replace the rotors with so few miles.

    STJIM, the gouges are are deeper than 33 and a third phonograph record. Maybe .010 of an inch.
    I never had a pulsing problem with OEM rotors, several OEM brake pads, and EBC brake pads. After 70,000 miles, they need replacement. The link to the EBC rotors cost as much as the OEM rotors i think.  I'm measuring less than 4.4mm.  Overdue!
    I ordered the OEM rotors.
    Thank you
