Carpimoto - Brembo "Oro" series brake rotors

If you are shopping for brake rotors, Carpimoto has Brembo Oro series rotors at a not bad price IMO for Brembo. Last Sunday night, ordered a set of discs with Brembo SC pads and they showed up on my doorstep last night (shipped direct from Genoa, Italy via DHL with full tracking).

I wasn't sure if these were full or semi floating before I ordered (website / reviews weren't clear) but the buttons are all spring loaded with about .020(ish) axial movement.

Price (with free shipping) : 313.46 euro = $460.54 CDN = $350.13 USD

Got hit with some extra fees / taxes at the door: $75.00 CDN = $57.06 USD (obviously this is country dependent....)

Note: These appear to be almost identical to the rotors than come on the ZX14R, Z1000R, etc. I could have gone used on Ebay (Mr. rcannon gave me some links) but with shipping to Canada, this deal worked out a bit better for me.

The carrier looks higher quality than the zx14 ones i have. Ill snap a pic when i get home. I think mine say, "Friendo" or such. Im not sure the carriers i have say "brembo" The rotor material does look similar.

Your have the little groove around the edge, im sure?

Nope, no groove. The OEM Brembo's on my GF's Street Triple R don't have the groove either but has some sort of bluish black coating around the edge (at least I think it's a coating, doesn't look like it's due to heat). The edge on my new ones is just a couple large chamfers with no coating.

The carrier on mine and hers appear to be almost identical.

I lied, mine dont say friendo...it says, "Fujico" , but the brembo symbol is visible, too. Im sure its like tires. It might be a Michelin, but its based on a Kawasaki spec.

The buttons are spring loaded, but they do have the outside groove. Mine also have the black paint. The rotors i bought were used, from ebay. One set had under 500 miles. The other was 1300. Even in that short of time, some of the paint was missing. Im not sure its very durable, although asking for paint to stick, on a rotor, is asking a lot. 5.5mm thick, just like yours.

I thought rotors were all the same, until i used these. Sure, I knew Galfer and ebc sucked, but thats about it. These are so smooth and powerful. Excellent feel. Ill be anxious to see how you like yours.

Thats a great price. Several hundred less than our normal deals.

If you want a round rotor, oit back, the zx14 uses the same rotor pattern we have. Its not a brembo, but its round. I paid 19.00 for mine. It does have the black painted edge, too.

Interesting, the carriers look quite different.
Mine are 5mm, the street triples are 4mm.
Here's a pic of the coating.

The ones i have for the zx10, the 330 models, are 5.0. They still have the groove, and the paint coating looks like yours.

The 3100mm versions i have were from the zx14.....a bike thats known to destroy rotors. Kawasaki much have speced a slightly thicker rotor for durability?

Both sets have carriers like i posted. Not as good looking as yours. Mine are more rounded. They have the brembo "b" , but the Fujico is more prominent.

Look at this......????????????????????????????????????

Its all Japanese. With regards to Fujico, watch the crawler at the bottom. If you do, within 15 seconds the gsxr "Brembo" brakes i have go floating by. If you click on the picture, the brembo m50 shows up on picture 7 or 8.....interesting.

This link is better as it shows Fujico brake parts. It looks like my discs are way more Fujico than brembo. They also make my p32 rear caliper. At least I stayed within the family. Im not surprised to see the gsxr brembos there, but i did not expect to see the m50. Ill bet this is where the new zh2 calipers come from?

????????????????????????????????????

I looked at their website closely. They don't have anything close to casting capability so I'd say Brembo supplies them caliper castings and they machine, assemble and pressure test. Similarly, the rotors look like they come in as raw stampings and they blanchard grind to size. All under license to save money for Japanese OEM''s.

In the end, if the raw material is what Brembo specs out, I wouldn't worry so much about who machined and assembled, especially a shop in Japan.

BTW, Brembo has 9 foundries around the world producing aluminum calipers and cast iron rotors.
