What other bikes have rotors that will fit the SH?

Using http://fiche.ronayers.com/Index.cfm/...up/FRONT_WHEEL
and reverse part look up it appears CBR600F3 and CBR600SE disks fit

But replacing knackered rotors with over 10 year items to achieve safe and efficient braking seems to be pushing it when your life is fundamentally at stake.

Should be about $350 for a new pair or EBC equivalents plus new pads,

edit http://www.jcmotors.com/p-17395-ebc-...-vtr1000f.aspx $204!

96-97 CBR900RR rotors fit as well, same for 94-97 VFR750. I believe the RVF400 and VFR400 rotors fit also (along with possibly CBR400RR)....

i think my rotors are warped...

i have a vibration and distinct pulsing when breaking
it looks like the previous owner bent the rotor with a wheel lock.

you may be correct with respect to warped rotors but probably not. I had a pulsing vibration that was shaking the front end while barkes applied and was basically intolerable. I bought a cheap set of chinese rotors for $160-170 which i still have in the garage. I have the same OEM rotors on now that were shaking everything but they are perfectly smooth now. Read this to help understand brakes:

https://www.superhawkforum.com/forum...ghlight=brakes

I had two problems:1) the little pistons in the calipers needed cleaned and lubricated so that they pressurize or apply brakes evenly, and 2)there was a build up of brake material melted onto the rotors that caused the sensation of warped rotors. If you read you'll discover that when you get your brakes hot and then hold them at a stop light, you can melt material onto the rotor causing uneven surface similar to warp, and for this reason it's best to use your rear brake at stops and release the fronts while waiting. You can find these high spots on your rotors by spinning the front wheel while you hold something next to the rotor as if you were truing a spoke rim. Mark the spots that have a build up of material with a sharpie or other so that you know where to focus your efforts. I have a cheap sandblaster attachment that i hooked up to a compressor and blasted those areas til I got rid of them. Then light blast or sand the rest of the rotor to make the surface uniform; or you could take it to a machine shop that could even them up on a lathe type machine(a lot easier and probably better job).

Mine weren't perfect when done with the sandblaster, but they were close to smooth. Trailbraking the Nick/Freddie style(The Yamaha Champions Riding School-Formerly Freddie Spencer School) took care of the rest of the build up I missed and now braking is once again smooth. Trailbraking as i do it means slight pressure on front brakes much of the time when riding curves and using the brakes and throttle similar to a rheostat, but that's a whole different topic.

This may save you some serious money or may not help at all, but at least you'll know for sure if you need to buy new rotors and you may be a little wiser for your efforts.
