Advice on 2008 R1200GSA Brake Discs ?

Post by Philiptigerrice » Sun Jun 11, 2017 8:56 am

So, my 2008 R1200 GSA is at 45,000 miles.
The discs are pitted, scored and lipping.... its time to change them out :silly:
BMW (Williams) are asking for almost £700 inc bobbins etc
Am looking at Brembo's from Motorworks probably...
Anyone got any other recommendations though?

The discs on my '09 F800GS are still the original but made by Brembo so probably very similar.
In your position I would call the fantastic Chaps and Chapess' at Moto Works and have a chat.
I recently changed the rear disc for an EBC item but they don't seem to make the fronts with bobbins as per original.
