Galfer Wave Specs

Galfer front wave rotors 3lb 1oz
Stock rotors 3lb 0oz

Galfer rear wave rotor 1lb 4oz
Stock rear rotor 1lb 12oz

Titanium rotor bolts (5x) 2oz
Stock rotor bolts 3oz

Bnninja
I weighed them today with the help of flatout (he weighed the waves). Yes, the stockers are light in the front....i saved myself $500 by getting off my lazy a$$.
I used the grocery store digital scale for weighing produce.

That's pretty messed up. Paying up to add lbs. to your front wheel.

Cutting a 1/2 pound off the rear wheel sounds good though. Thanks for the info.

BD,
Now we need you to weigh that AFAM rear sprocket and see the difference for us, please? I know on the 636 going +2 on an aluminum was a huge difference (636 is 520), maybe as much as 4-5oz just by judging the feel. After weighing the rotors I'm hesitant to go away from the steel rear if Sunstar was able to make the carriers for the rotors so light...maybe the sprocket is light too?

Personally, I did tell a slight difference going to the rear wave and Ti rotor bolts/rear caliper bolts, but I also set my preload correctly on the same day...which could be a better explanation...sorry.

I still want to change the front caliper bolts and pinch bolts to Ti, maybe the rear axle nut too. I was lazy and didn't weigh the sprocket nuts, but could weigh the stockers...I put aluminum sprocket nuts on the 10r.

Since I wont be getting the rotors and I've heard the Brembo isn't worth it, woodcraft rearsets it is!

Just another reason to throw that pretty rear galfer wave on my bike.

I have the Galfer Rotors sitting in my garage waiting to be installed.

I think I should send them back.

For $700 to add some weight, that don't make any sense.

but perhaps the braking perf is superior to the OEM which is what some are in search of.
