    Brake discs

    Hello Trophy hive-mind

    I'm thinking about replacing my brake discs this winter - the bike has close to 40k miles on it, and Ive been advised that the rear disc is near its wear limit.

    But, holy mother-of-fluff they are expensive! I'm looking at 500 for OEM discs, and thats before the bolts, new brake pads, and perhaps paying someone to do it.

    So, does any one know of any aftermarket manufacturers who make decent discs? I've found these guys in the US - https://nicheindustries.com/ - and even with shipping to the UK they would be significantly cheaper. But quality is unknown so Im a bit wary.

    Any recommendations would be gratefully received!

    Cheers

    Adam

    The T2025056 fits the Sprint GT 2010-2020 and the Sprint ST 2019-2020 as well as the Trophy STD and SE 2012-2017 and this could (COULD) be a good source for our Trophies.  It would need careful scrutiny as to dimensions regarding diameter and thickness and warranty.  Pictures may be generic and the actual item may come with 4 pads per disc as required on the Trophy. Member digital has fitted Brembo discs, and others may have done the same, and some members have fitted EBC's. I think the results have been favorable with both of those brands.  Someone with more experience in aftermarket brake parts will be along shortly I'm sure.  I never had to replace discs on my '13 as they were not at the minimum thickness in 40,000+ miles, but I did use EBC pads and was pleased with their performance.   I also cleaned the bobbins regularly and that helped to avoid or keep to a bare minimum the shudder so many have experienced.  I've yet to have to do anything but change fluid on my low mileage '17 currently in service.

    My bike has close to 100,000 miles and I have replaced my discs once using EBC MD817X Steel Full Circle X Discs (15) at 131.91 each for the front, got them in 2021 so do not know the current price but significantly lower cost than Triumph offer when I priced them.  Did the rear too but can't find my receipt.
    Love, light, and kindness,

    I think you've mentioned it before, but did they improve the occasional development of the shudder under braking?

    Not entirely, had to have the Callipers serviced that with new discs solved it.

    Hi all
    Thanks for the tips, I ended up getting what I hope is a very good deal from an Italian ebay seller - full set of Brembo discs for 285 delivered. They are in transit now, so fingers crossed they get here and I havent been scammed!
