Everybody talks about this unobtainable (or ridiculously expensive) front disc yet it doesn't seem to be a high-wear item. In the US I'm not sure most people are putting enough miles on their GTS's for it to matter much.

Regardless, I am going to switch to kevlar brake pads as I understand they are much gentler on brake disks (rotors).

Off to get the rear wheel balanced - See if that might be the source of the irritating high speed vibe.
