    One of my front rotors is slightly warped. Not a huge deal at the moment but I will eventually be looking for a replacement option besides the OEM for an '07 990 Adventure (ABS). Ran across this post and wondered. Anyone know of what options are available?

    Interesting. Now that you've made me look again as I had checked their site before, it appears the Galfers will not work as it specifically says "will not work with ABS bikes" at the bottom. The Braking ones say that too, BUT, offer a left and right and appear to be the ones in the photo. I wonder if that's a typo? Luckily, KTMtwins is down the street. Next time I pop by I'll ask them about that, too.

    Any word on this? I'd love to have Galfer brakes, but I have the ABS...

    Just don't forget to still use the longer dic retaining bolts on the ABS ring side.
    Happy trails!

    On the EXC I had to grind the caliper bracket a little so it cleared the bobbins on the Braking disc, might be same on the Adv?

    Good point. Stock discs have a recess for the screw head, this needs to be considered when adapting Braking discs onto the Adv.

    Looks like its only rubbing on one brake. Could you have a damaged wheel spacer on that side ending up with the wheel set too far one way?

    EBC is making one for the 950/990. They have also updated the rivets to square ones.
    I went this route on the SE after having the rivets loosen up on four stock ones..

    Right now only KTM factory rotors work with ABS, though you can use many other brands if you re willing to give up your ABS (sensor ring won't fit on aftermarket rotors)

    Incorrect sir, EBC has that issue sorted..

    Take a closer look at that EBC rotor it is recessed for the ABS ring...

    KTMser or any other one of the cats in here. Do you guys' have the correct EBC part numbers? I too have looked for my '10 ABS and those clowns at Cycle Gear don't show anything in their catalogs. I have been looking at all sources online and don't want to order something I can't return. Thanks in advance. Dave

    Update.. The EBC's have been holding up very well.. If I had replaced these with stock ones I would have had them rattling by now, the EBC's are still tight with no movement.l..

    here is a picture of the rear, they should have made it match the front...
