Wanting to replace my bikes discs, currently on BRAKING ones (270mm front) but damn they're expensive to replace. Any suggestions on a different brand that's a bit less painful on the wallet without sacrificing too much quality? Thanks, casey

I used to think I was indecisive, but now I'm not too sure.

I'm a bit biased but you should have a look at Moto-Master:
https://www.moto-master.com/product-category/offroad-brake-products/brake-rotors-offroad/
Factory KTM US & Europe, Factory Wilvo Yamaha, Factory Husqvarna.... many more use them.

They also have a Factory Rear Disc that is 10% thicker than a normal rotors, which is great if you're a brake dragger.

Thanks mate, I was actually just looking at a set of the flame style ones on 24mx! I'll keep looking but I'll keep those in mind. Thanks!

The Galfer SKW @ $135 and Tusk oversized rotor @ $120 are both great options. Rockstar Husky uses the Galfer SKW.

I can recommand Moto-Master. My 270 Moto-Master oversize Kit is beautifully made and works great on my yz250f (with stock brake pads). I had a BRAKING set before and it was heavier, not as well made and more expensive..

I got an oversized tusk rotor on both of my bikes. They work great.

Moto master discs are outstanding. I had nothing but good luck with their products.

I also run a 270 Motomaster flame floating disc on the front. I like it a lot.
