Replacing Calipers

Im upgrading to a set of 08CBR600 calipers, so I'm going to be putting a new set of lines and HH sintered pads in. The question is on the stock rotors am I going to have to smooth them out to get a smooth surface? If I do what is the easiest and best way to accomplish this?

You can bead blast them. It cleans them and helps the new pads seat. Or just ruff them up with some 400 grit sandpapper.

I never really had any issues when I made the change at about 12,000 miles. My brakes are awesome, and although the rotors are towards the end of their life, they have done me well.

The only thing I did was clean them off real good.
