Rotors ???

Guys I have 21,000 miles on the 10R and when I come to a slow stop the bike starts jumping in the front like pulsating when the brakes are applied. I think its time for some new rotors which ones should I go with I want better than stock I saw some Galfer, EBC very trick rotors what do you all think would be a good way to go?

I'm not fast I'm just faster than you

Braketec irons are lighter but different feel from what I have heard. The Galfers are about the same weight as stock but look nice....CMC are the lightest but 3k for rotors is off the hook....

Yes, the Braketech CMC's are carbon ceramic.

Kneedragger - I have the Braketech SS rotors coming off my ZX-10 if you are interested in those. I also have a Galfer rear wave rotor.

Can someone get in to details on this subject? See I really don't know what to look for other than I know I want something better than stock. So some of you may have seen me post in the sponsors section about a price on the Galfer superbike rotors new for 07 and I about fell off my chair when I saw what they cost. I don't think that rotor setup is for me or nor do I think I need the most expensive setup. Is thier some good light weight better than stock rotors? Which ones should I go for? I just don't want to throw away a lot of money ya know These are the Galfer rotors I was talking about If you don't mind spending a mortgage payment on a set of rotors
