What's a good brake disc front/rear?

At a point, putting stuff back together and decided I'm gonna go ahead and put new brake discs. Should I go with factory or what other options do I have. Looked on eBay and seen some, but not all to sure what else to look for other than thickness. Any suggestions? Thanks in advance.

kevlar brake pads are suppose to be smoother not as much bite as the sinterered HH brake pads. I use sintered HH in front and kevlar in the rear. just comes down as preference over time and experience i supppose. more braking power with the sintered HH pads and kevlar lasts a longer time but you dont want them to bite down as hard especially if you use your back brake's a little in a turn. cant use your fronts blah blah blah

Re: What's a good brake disc front/rear?

Well come to find out those are not the brands spoke of and the ones spoke of, (holy ) they're expensive. So I'll just have to put factory back on. Any other options for something other than factory a little less expensive than the bad ones mentioned. Thanks.

Anything worth putting on your bike can potentially be expensive. Brakes and you life go hand in hand. If you want quality aftermarket, you've gotta spend a little. No offense intended BTW. I'm in the same boat, I'd like new rotors but I don't have the immediate available funding to get what I want.
