I know someone who currently has his GTS laid up as it's failed it's annual road worthiness inspection, (MOT) on a worn front disc and he cannot source another as Yamaha now have none in stock.
It's an issue but I'm taking nothing away from the GTS as a great bike.
I've owned two of them over the years, and covered about 50,000 trouble free GTS miles.
Well nearly trouble free.
My water pump failed in France on a touring holiday but that could happen to any bike.
Time tot ake the stocke rotor off the carrier, and have a machine shop emulate it, and save the CAD files. They could then become the only retailer of replacement rotors for the GTS.
