    travelers are passing through San Diego on their way south. They have an urgent need for a front rotor. Their searches have come up empty. Does anyone know how we might obtain one in a day or two?

    40 year old motorcycle, time to contact a machine shop with better dimensions. EBC makes brake discs, try them.

    The EBC part number is listed in the original post and those dimensions are their specs so that someone who knows about rotors might know of other equivalents available in the US. None of the US shops that were contacted carry them; available in Europe.

    So order from Europe. With fast shipping it shouldn’t take more than a week.

    Duc power.com likely has used Cagiva rotors.

    Outfit called Rugged Roads might be able to help. Doesn't appear to be US based though.

    They’ve already moved on. Going to deal with it until Costa Rica where family will meet them with rotors in luggage.
