Floating rotor carriers - group buy

Right, so there’s been a number of threads and lots of chat about new floating carriers for the 90’s cast iron floating brake rotors that were on Superlights, SS/SP’s, 851 SP’s, and a few other bikes. So now it’s time to get this underway.

Let me also state up front here, that I have no interest or association with whoever makes the carriers, or anything else, I just need a new set of carriers for my 851 SP3.

As has been previously stated, new rotors can be made from a 7000 series alloy, which is harder than the original 6000 series alloy carriers. However the manufacturer needs a number of sets ( 13 pairs I believe? ) to make it worth his while. Surely between all the bikes out there with these rotors, and everyone that has expressed interest in the previous threads, we can get 13 solid orders. Pricing is yet to be confirmed, but the talk on one of the other threads was in the region of USD$400 for the pair.

I’m sure someone appropriate will chime in with more accurate info and pricing at some stage.

The manufacturer will need a sample as well, so they can make the new ones as exact copies of the originals. So if no one in the US can lend them one, I will send one of mine from Australia.

So, please don’t whore this thread out with “yeah I want some but they’re too expensive”, “ my discs spin on the carriers but they’re fine”, or “ my $150 Chinese eBay floating rotors are the shiz”, please go to the other threads for that. Please only reply if you are serious about putting your hand up for a pair and have the coin to do it. Please also state how many pairs you want.

I’ll start the ball rolling with 1 pair, shipped to Perth. I’m more than happy to combine shipping with anyone else in Perth who wants some ( Julian, Graham? ).

Corse Dynamics was the company that offered to make the production run for us. They actually asked us to take 15 sets - we will put 2 sets on the shelf to make this happen if there is enough interest - so we only need a total of 13 buyers. Price was $400/set.

If the price is $400.00 or less - I'll throw in to help this happen.

I'll commit to ONE pair.

1997 900SS/SP - damn near bone stock
1995 900 SS/SP - a long, long way from stock...
1992 851 Strada - almost stock

I just posted this over on the 851 / 888 forum, so hopefully a few of them will join the fray.

These discs / carriers are also on 916 SP and 916 SPS.

Are people having failures with their OEM carriers? Would love a little more background on the symptoms and potential failure scenarios with OEM cast irons. I have 2 bikes outfitted with them and have owned several sets, some very very loose, without issue (yet). But it does beg the question....

The problem with the carriers is wear under the buttons which allows rotation of the disc.

The cast iron discs can crack between the drilled holes, and then eventually shatter. This disc failed on the track and tore the caliper off the fork leg of a friend's 916 SP.
