Re: r1 concepts

I believe we do, I think that's required to be a vendor... I'd shoot them an email.

Re: r1 concepts

I got the slotted ones which seem good - they probably eat the pads a bit quicker than the solid rotors but I'm okay with that for the front discs (I got the R1 solids on the back tho).

I didn't go with drilled & slotted due to the numerous reports of cracking from numerous guys on here and other sites. Might want to look into that a bit further...

I went with R1 slotted all the way around, a big mistake indeed. I get brake squeal all the time, they told me its because of pads and to do the break in process again (which I did) but no luck. Stick with smooth rotors, you won't regret it.

Re: r1 concepts

im leaning towards the "Royalty Rotors-Cryo" from one of the vendors on the other site... they are warranted for their lifetime against warping and cracking
