Here's a pic of the Titax 400EX rotor on the Z. I know others have already posted pics, but I just wanted to prove that I did it! :D You can also see the PB block off plate.

Definitely! I had to back the parking brake adjuster out quite a bit before it would fit. Seems to be fine, though. It still rolls pretty well.

I've had it since the beginning of July, but I've only gotten to ride it about 5 or 6 times. I'm just now starting to bring it out of the break-in stage.

Does anyone know why the rotor on these things are so bad. I think I only rode about 2 times before I noticed it was warped. I rarely used the back break in those 2 times. So I don't think I heated it up that bad. When I went to wax my chain I noticed it. Oh well, along with replacing everything else I can just add that to the list.

Maybe there was just a bad batch of rotors on the American models. :roll: Mine started squeaking on the first ride.

those holes that every other manufacturer puts in their brake disks serve a purpose! COOLING!!!! heating with rapid cooling will warp a rotor off by as much as 5 degrees!
