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? ).

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.
I'm assuming they are the same anodised gold colour Jafa?
cant seem to find a picture of them in colour?;)
I'm sure hoping so, otherwise they're not going to be any good!!

Moto, can you answer this?
So we're up to 6 sets out of the 15 required.
Back to the top - c'mon people we need a few more buyers to make this happen!!!!!!!!!!!
Hopefully everyone's wallet has recovered from Christmas, and we can get a few more people in on this deal. I'll take 2 sets if I have to, to make it happen.
Yes I still want my pair, and I'll still take a second pair if I have to, to make the whole deal happen.
The Corse Dynamics machinist has a set of the rotors and is working on a prototype that should be delivered to us as soon as next week. Once we approve for production, it will only take another two weeks for production and anodize. We can make them available with or with out new buttons.

How did the prototype go?

Are these going to be hard anodised or regular anodised?
Moto, can you please tell us where you are up to and if you are going to finish the project or abandon it. This is starting to drag on somewhat and patience is starting to wear thin.

Another outfit now has a proven product, so if you don't want to complete yours for whatever reasons then no hard feelings, but we need to know soon as riding season for some of us is fast approaching, and WE NEED BRAKES TO RIDE!!!!!!!
