Galfer Wave Rotors. Is this a good Deal? $483.76

I'm looking to buy a pair and the best I could find on the net is $483.76 + $9.23 shipping (+ $40.67 tax because they're Texas based ) = $533.66

although, what I can't believe is that they're charging tax on the shipping

http://www.powersportsuperstore.com/.../tr19-8000.htm

Anyone have them? What's your opinions?

It's the best price I could find nonetheless, but does anyone have the lowdown of where to get a better deal?

I had Braking Wave rotors on my track bike until the buttons on one of them started getting loose. They are pretty similar to the Galfer in design. They worked very well and had good feel and good heat dissipation. When I replaced them I put a set of used stock rotors back on the bike and didn't notice much difference except that I saved several hundred dollars.

If you are looking for performance enhancement I think there are better areas to spend money. Suspension improvements are what I would start with it if is a track bike. Just my opinion.

I am. I purchased new wheels, including a Delkevic 6-spoke front that the DF027W Galfers will fit onto. Tim's powdercoating it right now. I'll need to shim the calipers a bit to make them fit.

I got some work I need you to do on it anyways, as soon as I get it back from Magic's and Tim's. The clutch seems to be slipping, and I'm not sure if it's just a simple adjustment or in need of a new clutch

Thanks Patrick.

I agree, and have said it before, that suspension should be the very first upgrade on anyone's bike.

Suspension + Brakes + Tires... those are the most important upgrades you can do on a bike, whether it be street or track. Think about that the next time a cager suddenly pulls out in front of you on the streets.

I find it rather funny that those most critical of a brake system upgrade (such as wave rotors) as being only for bling (as if that's a negative thing to begin with), yet one of their first investments is in an exhaust for about the same cost, and usually bling is a big factor in their decision. Between these 4 mentioned upgrades, exhaust should be #4.
