Replacing floating rotor rivets

Recommended Posts

My front SM rotor has too much radial play. Anyone know where to get new rivets to get rid of this? Axial play is not that bad, but the whole rotor is slowly getting loose from the carrier.

I may have some rivets at home from an EBC rotor. I can measure one tonight and see if they'll work for you. If they do you can have them.

I have a brand new EBC 4mm high clearance kit from the 320mm rotor. I don't know if it will work on your factory rotor but you can have it if it does.

I would not be mixing and matching brake rotor parts personally... If the rotor manufacture offered replacement buttons, like say EBC does, then sure..but changing them on a rotor that no such service parts are offered with parts from some other brand.... no thanks, not on a brake rotor I'm trusting my life to, hundreds of times a ride

I have a like new Suzuki E floating rotor which probably uses the same buttons as the SM rotor. You can have that, too, if it helps. It's just been sitting in my office for months now.

Ready for pickup off the 15/10 freeways.

Hm, alright I'm going to switch back to my other SM rotor for now. It's thinning, but the play is fine. I can get a good deal on a Motomaster flame rotor, I'll save up for that I guess.

Thanks for the offer @ptgarcia!

Went ahead and got the EBC wave rotor. 99.99% sure it's a 310 mm, but it's weird how no one lists the diameter. 

Wave - MD6247C 

Standard - MD6247D

      Hi,
      I have a 2003 DRZ (actually a KLX400) and the head tube bearings are shot.  I ordered a new set to install but I'm wondering if anyone has any recommendations on other parts I should replace while I have the front disassembled.  I was thinking about new rubber fork protectors, but are there other things that wear out on the DRZ front ends that you can only get to when disassambled?
      I also broke off a replacement key that I got for the steering lock.  I must have been made of cheap pot-metal.  Should I just remove the whole lock mechanism?
      Any tips or tricks for getting the old bearings out and the new ones in would be welcome!
      Thanks!

      Hey Guys,
      I recently bought a 2003 DRZ400S and thought it would be a good idea to check the valves clearance etc . I timed the engine on TDC with the magneto mark aligned as per the manual but I find the cam timing slightly odd. The arrows pointing upward are on the 1st and 15th pin as they should but with the magneto timing mark aligned they are not perfectly straight. Same goes for the arrows that should be parallel to the cylinder head casing. Is this normal or should they be absolutely perfect ?

      My bike was stolen, so I'm liquidating my spare parts. 
      I took this off my S and replaced it with an SM unit so my speed would be more accurate with the street wheel setup.  I no longer need this spare.  I greased it regularly and it was in good working order when I removed it.  Included is only what is pictured.  Cable not included.
