Could someone post a pic of what the rotor "burn in" should look like on the windcutter/serrated rotor.

I just got a windcutter for the rear of my supercal. I do not think that that brake pads are tracking correctly on the rotor because all of the "burn in" is only on the cut out surface and goes all the way to the outer diameter. Using stock Juicy 5 hardware, size 160mm.


Thanks

My burn in is a few mm further outboard than yours. The inner diameter of the burn track crosses the cut outs only and does not reach the outermost full circle part of the rotor. I'll have to pull the pad to see if the top is not being touched by the rotor.

Do i need to shave some of the adapter?

I have found a few pics and BB sent me a pic of his and it seems like I am at least 2-3mm outboard from where I should be. I plan on taking some paint off of the adapter and shave it a bit if needed.

Soya look the same as mine, which is ideal, the pad is 1-2 mm inboard from the outer edge of the rotor.

How do they work with the Elixirs? My plan is to replace the J7's on my Supercal with Elixir Rs and put the J7s on the HT.
