    Does anyone know if there is an aftermarket company that makes front rotors for the Trophy? Doesn't look like EBC does

    Good luck.... will be interested to see which ones you go for. I have some new EBC pads to fit when I need them but the Trophy discs on mine still seem good after 20,000 miles

    Don't really understand what the difference is between the two options. Going to talk to mechanic that I always work with and ask him about it. Your lucky your rotors are still good mine started pulsating around 10,000 miles. Tryed new EBC pads but no help. Tryed cleaning and lubing the bobbins and again same problem. Run out on the rotors are within spec but brakes suck.

    I got severe pulsing on new EBC rotors with new EBC pads after 100 miles or so. After pulling the wheel and checking for run out I gave the discs a thrashing with sandpaper, about 180 or 220 grit. Hosed them with brake cleaner and all is good.

    After prolonged braking on long hills I always use the rear brake to hold at a stop to avoid the buildup of brake pad material that bonds to the discs. This is the usual suspect when there is brake throbbing. When working in a Honda auto service center the techs used an air drive abrasion pad on discs to cure this and always when installing new pads.

    But one can get this pad material buildup when first running in new discs or pads. You might want to try this cleaning before spending time and money on other possibilities. And you don't need to remove the wheel.

    I already had the rotors off and the tech ran a tool over the surface to buff them off and remove any hot spots as he called them. It is better but still not right. Never Never had a problem like this before it's really frustrating
