06-07 Front Rotor suggestions

Bike: 06 ZX10r
Current setup: stock w/ braided lines

I'm trying to decide what the 'smartest' front rotor route is for my 10, hopefully some of the experienced members can chime in.
Understand that the bike will not see race time but consider that it will be used in a similar fashion; I am a fan of overkill.

So far I've ordered a Brembo 19RCS and Brembo HP billet calipers.

What diameter should I get and why (300/310/320)?

I've been thinking about the Brembo 320mm oversized kit (non T-drive), but is the extra 20mm worth it?

My other thought was to get the Braketech iron 300mm rotors.

Any tips/suggestions/experience/advice would be much appreciated.

I've always ran EBC prolites for street use (and galfer wave's a couple times..no likie) but have never heard a bad thing about the brembo's...especially if the rest of your brake setup is the same brand...i don't think you'll be unhappy.

Take a risk, and you may lose. Never risk, and you will always lose.

Thanks for the input.

Any debatable reasons why I should go 320 over 310/300 or vise versa?

Does anyone know if there's an issue running 300's with the HP calipers?

No issue with running 300mm rotors with the HP's, as the spacer kit you get with them will be made for the 300mm rotors which are stock.
I run braketech wave rotors and no complaints thats for sure, running Brembo HP's, 19x18 brembo master, SBS sintered race (not recommended, very hard on rotors) & goodridge SBK lines..

I would say if you want to waste the money get brembo 310mm rotors...the 320's might give you some way tighter cleanace when putting the calipers on/off.
also they will be a bit heavier but more initial bite when braking.

If/when i mod the brakes again i will try the Braketech 310mm CMC rotors as lighter and will help the handling and work as well as anything else made period.

That's some great info JD, I appreciate it.

What size are the spacers that came with your kit? The HP kit I ordered is not zx10r specific so I will likely have to order the spacers seperately (probably through yoyodyneti.com).

Do you have any experience with iron rotors? The CMC rotors are amazing but I don't think they would be well suited for a bike that will likely never see track time.

Does anyone know what size spacer is needed for the Brembo HP billet calipers so that they'll work with 300mm rotors?

I would happily reccomend any of the Braketech rotors, especially with their patented design to stop the 'Buttons' wearing. I went with there SS ones cos I wore out the 'Buttons on my O.E.M. rotors.
Only thing is it's weird at 1st hearing your rotors rattle when going slowly cos they are fully floating.

If you have a Brembo master and Brembo calipers why not stick with Brembo rotors. Not trying to pick on you but if you are not really racing and going for a more bling factor matching always seems cooler!!!! Like Ohlins front forks with rear shock and steering damper. Just my opinion though. As far as spacers go you can by the spacer kit made for your ZX10R. Just before you do know if you are going to run oversized rotors or not then give a Brembo supplier a call and tell them. They will sell you the correct spacer kit. As far as size goes whatever you fancy since you are not racing with this setup. I've never had a problem getting calipers off with oversized rotors.
