LOL ok you perv's not what you think this is about........lol



I'm not sure all the research went into this...... although I rarely ever use my rear brake I like to know that when I have to its there, and strong and solid..... This just looks kinda iffy to me for street riding......

Nope. It's way too thin, if it breaks, lock the rear wheel up, and kiss the pavement.

No real benefit on a street bike. We use something like that on our racebikes though.

"Our lightening process reduces the weight of a stock rear brake rotor by between 7 and 24 ounces depending on the model."

if youre that worried about every ounce, then go on a diet. lose 2 pounds and save the $95.00 imo

ok pretty much the responses I thought would come.....


I just found it interesting while surfing around and thought to myself "who would even bother doing that?" and I thought I would share it with y'all....


just to clarify I have no intentions of doing it and no desire,...... I would replace mine with stock, or OEM replacements and if I was really feeling frisky would have Patrick order me up some Galfer.,....but all in all ounces mean absolutely nothing to me...
