2014 F3 ABS & TC. Warping front disc's

Hello All,
We are looking for replacement front disc's for a 2014 F3. First ABS & Traction Control model
It has warped it's 2nd set of disc's, local dealer said. They've heard of a few doing this!.
REALLY. WTF!
Not going with standard BREMBO disc's again.

What options are available to us.
What are the race bikes using, if anybody knows.
The bike is ridden fast and hard, but NOT ABUSED. Very talented and competent lady rider.

I trust her with my F4 1000 race bike.
Any assistance appreciated.

Tony.

Oooof. How many miles taken to do that? Ive done 4000miles this summer on my F3, and it is fine. You're sure unlucky. The only time I've had warped disks was when I had a YZF750 and I was doing stoppies. Ahhhh...the idiocy of youth.
I'm guessing youve had the calipers checked for binding etc?

Take a chance while you still got the choice.

Heya Tony
Has your "local dealer" setup a dial indicator to measure the runout?
Or used a micrometer to measure thickness variations at several points around the discs? If so how far out are they?
But if he hasn't, before buying new discs I would try a few other things first
Just my 2c

Cheers

^^^What he said^^^

Plus, there are other things that can cause the "feeling" of warped discs such as dirty and sticking disc buttons.

Qualified measurement is in order. You can't realistically make that measurement on the bike, this discs should be separated from the carriers...I sincerely doubt the dealer did that.

I run STD brembo discs. Lasted many track days and season of racing they have lasted over 15,000 miles . It's gotta be something else causing them to go. Is the abs causing binding and over heating them?

First time was at 15000klm, second was 30000klm. (Both failed at approx 15000klm)
She is checking back with the dealer tomorrow about disc thickness or possible pad drag.
Both sets were new OEM & low klm before failure.

Mass produced brembo are crap lots of known warp issues
You are lucky to get 15000kms on track use. Not worth the money for replacement.
