eBay . . . . . for everything. If the seller won't tell you the remaining thickness - screw it, move on. People sell under spec stuff on there all the time.

At least the rears are cheaper than the fronts, for some reason. Happy sniping.

6'-2", 210, old Geezer Glide and a big dumb grin.

Goldwings. . . if you're gonna have something between your legs, it might as well be enormous and smooth.

Thank you for the info! I am on Ebay almost 24/7, I ask questions several different ways before buying, some of the sellers will tell you anything but the correct time of day and the truth regardless of their ratings.

yes, ebay. And, after you get them, get another set cheap for spares.

Some say a machine shop or clutch shop would turn them down.Some said thatO'Rielley's would turn clutch flywheel plates and MC rotors, but my local shop will not do MC rotors.

I too use eBay after paying $200 each for new EBC rotors.
Last rotor I got was $35.
If I can't see that it is perfectly flat and unworn, then I skip it. I have enough worn out and cupped rotors already.
