When I checked my rear rotor on my 800GS at approximately 18,000-miles, it was about 1mm away from needing to be replaced (according to BMW specs). I happen to relish the opportunity to bolt new farkles on my bike, but maintaining minimum safety standards is a no-brainer. If safety is good, then more safety is surely better. So, let's take things a step further and add a better performing brake system to the rear wheel. Introducing the Galfer RearWave Rotor for the 800GS.
The performance on the Galfer Rear Wave Rotor is outstanding. We can pound on the brake pedal all day and it responds beautifully without fail. The rotor sheds water through its self-cleaning properties thanks to the wave shape, which also aids in cooling- paramount to a good rotor. Heat will cause brakes to fade, meaning that they start to feel soft and lose their bite. Galfer has worked tirelessly on solving this problem by actually inventing and patenting the Wave Rotor. Thanks Galfer!
