Rotors just came back from Galfer...

Prettty.....

Interesting tho, the new buttons aren't full rivets like the ones that they make them with. These use c-clips to hold them in, which is nice, as I could replace these myself if I need to next time.

The old stainless steel button were worn out, so they were WAY out of spec (had too much freeplay between rotor and carrier) So I sent them in to have the buttons replaced with these nice shiny red anodized aluminum ones. The old buttons were rivtets. The new ones are held on by c-clips.

My Brembo rotors had C-clips on them. I was surprised how much the rotor will move with them.

I guess you didn't have them re-surface them?

do the rotors 'rattle'? i have floaters, and when pitting around in the pits, it sounds like the bike is falling apart.

they did...and to an extent thats normal, but mine were way out of spec. If yours are banging around in the pits, they probably are too.
