Whats the point? They dont even look that good.
What picture you looking at ? The one with a Hayes 8" on top of the RR ?

Less fade and more power . Whats not to like ? Frame cleareance issues for my bike as a 8" is max.

well it looks like it would overheat on long runs but the bigger circumference would disapate the heat better....then you get to the point where how much brake before you skid (braking versus loss of traction)


still hate to get "bitten" by one of those

If you are gonna spring for new rotors, why not get floating rotors? 9 inches seems pretty unneccessary to me. Hope 2 piece rotors are sick. I'm unsure of their compatability with whatever brakes you have.
on the floating rotors is there less drag?

ya, its basically all about looks when it comes to my purchasing decisions...
Not at all. Why do you need a larger than 8' rotor? I have no problems with overheating running both hfx nines and el caminos. I could see buying them if you had a problem and if they looked better than they did, but for me they do neither, so whats the point?

I agree....if Hayes 8" Mags can stop my butt...and we ride the steeps out here......... than why go bigger
