Replacing floating rotor rivets

11 posts in this topic

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
