Which front brake disc?

Recommended Posts

I'm probably going to have to get a new 270 mm front brake rotor for a spare wheel I'm getting.  My choices from Rocky Mountain ATV/MC are:

Stock OEM Yamaha: $102.77

RM Tusk brand SS: $60

EBC Contoured (high carbon steel): $106.59

EBC CX Extreme SS: $107

Do any of you have any suggestions or opinions regarding reliability/quality, weight, durability, performance (especially with only sintered pads for all conditions), etc.?

Is it worthwhile to also get a set of carbon pads for dry, hot conditions?

Thanks.

I just picked up a Pro X spare 270 for an extra wheel. Bought it off EBay for $50 with free shipping.

I'll try that too in case I can find a similar deal but I'd like to get one soon.

I have the tusk setup on my 15 and it works great. 


Same here no complaints!

Also have the tusk. Just replaced the rear rotor with a tusk as well. Both work awesome.

Timely question... My 2015 YZ250FX has the 250mm rotor and my YZ450FX has the 270mm rotor.  I'm wanting to convert the 250FX to 270mm so I can swap wheels as necessary.  Looks like I'll order the Tusk Oversized front brake kit.  $120.  Thanks.
