cheap rear brake disc

I need a rear brake disc for my spare wheel set.

Anyone know of an attractively priced aftermarket? It's a 2006 950 so it's a non-floater. Couldn't find anything searching here.

For my old 625 SXC spare wheelset I bought one of these on eBay and was pretty happy with it but they don't make a 240mm.

Thanks!

Is your old worn? missing? or just bent?

It never existed. I got the spare wheel set with the bike. I guess the previous owner swapped the disc over whenever he wanted to use them

I suppose a decent condition used one would work, always sceptical of used discs though as the last used wheel I bought came with a disc dished like a dinner plate.

.....

And yes, the bike still vibes .... I suppose I should fix that first but buying new shit is easier

Oh.



I was going to tell you how easily I straightened mine, but I suppose its absence would complicate the process.

Might be an option:

http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Full-Set-B...item2a13914cbb

Can't vouch for them myself, but I might get a set when I have the spare cash.

thanks for the link: I'll give it some thought. Odd the set of 3 seems a lot better value than just the rear:

I remember hearing that the floating disc from the 990 works for the 950 application and is cheaper than the non-floater. Am I remembering this right? I'll go check pricing...


Retail pricing, the floater is cheaper by about $25. $151 for the floater retail from Munn Racing. If you know anyone who gets the 25% discount they offer, the price is pretty good.

With a crescent wrench for a non-floater. Use the caliper gap as a reference. Not sure how to fix a warped floater disc?
