Like my disks waving at me - just saying. They are different to the ones shown, I think.

Mine came with waves.

A dull boy, I suppose, as I hadn't even noticed 'til someone pointed them out.

Bit like tappets; anything with flats on it doesn't work well on a GRiSO Wink

Now, that's funny.

Helps explain why I ride so well: I have a rounded, not flat, belly.  cheers

I believe there were at least two different types of 'Wave' rotors fitted to various runs of Grisos. My very early bike had 'Braking' rotors. Later bikes like Mark's which I think was a 2010 had another patern rotor and I think were manufactured by another company?

Not terrifically important, I just thought I'd throw it into the mix. I too have no use for silly shaped rotors but they're good enough for the 'Turdio' Very Happy

My wavy rotors have 'SunStar' stamped on them.

I was planning on putting cast iron rotors on mine, but when the Grimeca's became available at that insane price, it was too good to pass up.

Mark, your pics above have me wondering how in a hot climate you kept your oil cooler cover from doing “the wave”. Mine is crookeder than our dear leader the stable genius! Razz

I think it's just dumb luck. Some warp just by looking at them. Mine, not so much.

Perhaps you never slow down enough to expose it to significant heat?

Probs. I rarely ride in town or get stuck in traffic.

My Wave rotors are Braking Brand. Apart from a truly warped right disk (I dropped the bike getting it off a trailer once, and bent it) they have been good. 110,000 km on them now and still the original brake pads on the front - me likes engine braking, so front brakes are there for the ID10Ts that are allowed to co-exist on our roads.

The light Grimicas exist in two tastes, with steel center(guzzi), and aluminum center, rsv4. Look is identical, only when you take a good look you'll notice. And partnumer is different
But Grimeca stoped making them, so there are same shape, without grimeca on them. Sunstar is a chineese manufaturer, they made the 1995 - 2002 disks for Guzzi with the round holes in the golden center, we all thought is was brembo.

the rsv4 grimeca

I like the wavy ones and have the earlier version (according to Pete's post earlier) I think they add to the design asthetics, evey other bike has round disks, how ordinary they look!!

Mine are carved from unicorn ivory harvested from the very rare and aggressive xyy genome unicorns. Man they kick ass!

the only downside to them all is that they keep slowing me down!
