7075 Aluminium rotor buttons

After replacing my fronts with Brembo HP 330mm supersport rotors and gaining weight with the upgrade I've had sleepless nights!anxiety issues and found myself in a depressed state just looking at them(joking.....maybe not)!The buttons on the HP rotors are steel (10g per button)so replacing them with Aluminium helps salvage some grams gained although minimal!10 buttons per rotor could drop anything from 50-70 grams a rotor so time will tell when they arrive

Well that turned out crap!I just removed the wheel and rotors(fitting up ti blue rotor bolts anyway!I removed 1 of the Brembo buttons(simples)and it's aluminium already!so you guys with HP rotors don't waste your time thinking(like me)they are steel!what makes me is I had tried contacting Brembo themselves for the last week asking that specific question before I pulled the trigger but no joy!anyway the Black buttons will look nice anyway!
My next thread will read something like this!
For sale!20 genuine Brembo 14mm~5.5mm Aluminium full floating buttons.................

Pull a button Theatis and measure the diameter where it sits in between the carrier and disc!then your rotors will prolly be 5-5.5mm thick so then you have a size!my Brembo are 14mm(diameter) and 5.5(thick)and that's how you will no what you need!I will get the company's name shortly

OZ! don't mess with the bike! :) Ride the crap out of it (inside the comfort zone) and sell after 100,000 miles. But buy the dang extended warranty of the 10r. Trust me on that.
