Hey all, it seems like more teams are running floating front rotors these days. I get the slight reliabilty factor after taking small hits, but other than that is there any advantage to them for the just for fun vet racer? Thanks!

Floating rotor makes the front brake feel more progressive to me. It doesn’t bite and lock up as easy. I can grab it harder without front wheel traction loss.

I used one about a decade back on an 06 CRF450r. It does have a different feel to it vs. the standard frt. rotor. It felt less grabby with a more subtle feel as the brake lever was pulled in.

Ok, cool. Will probably just go with another solid rotor, liking the stock feel.Thanks for the replies!
