Suzuki Motorcycle Brake Rotors
Motorcycle brake rotors or discs are an integral part of a Suzuki’s braking system and a principal element to keeping the driver safe. When you press the brakes, the brake pads clamp down on the discs to stop the wheels from spinning. Bike brakes generally operate independently, which means that there is a hand-operated control for each brake, front and back. Because brake rotors are visible on the motorcycle, of these parts are customised using decorative drilling or shaping.Material
Cast iron is a common material used to make rotors. However, because cast iron rusts easily when exposed to the rain it's more common to find stainless steel or Suzuki aluminium motorcycle brake rotors.Styles
The majority of OEM rotors are solid with no wavy edges, grooves, or holes. Manufacturers like the solid design because it offers a high heat dissipation at a reasonable price. However, if you use aftermarket slotted, cross-drilled, or wave-design brake rotors, it will allow water to flow out from the space between the pads and disks.Front or Back
You don't always have to replace the front and back brake rotors at the same time. It isn't uncommon for one to go out before the other. However, if one does go out, it would be advisable to check the other one too. It’s better to be safe than sorry.When to Replace
Several signs tell you it's time to check your brakes to make sure they continue to work and do the job properly. The first thing is to do a visual inspection looking for any wear or rust on the discs. Next, listen, and when you start to hear a metal on metal or loud grinding noise when you put on the brakes it might just be time to replace the rotors. Never take your bike out if you feel you can't stop properly, you don't want to be cruising down the road when the brakes go out.
