Anyone running carbon ceramics or CMC rotors?

Was going to do this on my last Ducati about 5yrs ago but crashed it before I got the chance and have just run traditional rotors since.

Sicom and another company had front rotor sets for around 1800 iirc at the time

Looking to do the new 10 spoke pvm wheels, carbon front rotors and bitubo or ohlins at same time on the f3

Yes have used Sicom and Brake tech . Both phenominal.As far as Suspension look at NITRON ,there best rear shock is the equivilant the OhLINS TTX46 . You cant buy the Ohlins ttx46 unless your a Superbike racer . But NITRON Sells the unit to the public . Also use of Titanium Spring and Nitron adjusts the valving and spring to your weight , not just the spring like some companies do . Nitron are new to motorcycle market but been in F1 ect foreveras Ohlins main rival . .... PS Nitron Suspension costs only 60% of what Ohlins does ... Penske is also a top tier Suspension company one should consider .

Had to get mine used. The came off a Ducati D16. I sent the rotors to braketech to be inspected and to have the carrier switched out.

I thought carbon brakes are not good for road riding, and even on the track, you need to be going quite fast for them to show they are better than steel brakes.

These are not 100% carbon like in MotoGP. They are a composite material. Very light and work great without having to have a lot of heat in them.

I asked my tuning center what brakes to use since I wanted the Sicom brakes. He told me to look at which brakes all the top 10 riders in all races uses - Brembo. No need to get anything else than Brembos best race brakes.

(Aaaahhhh, I see - but I still want them)

Enjoying my RC!

I think that the standard brakes are great both for track and road for most riders.

A bit of bling can offer a much greater sense of fulfillment than extra performance.

I like the look of those discs Andrew, they look very professional, I also like the front shock!

Is your chain slightly loose?

The reason I chose the RR instead of the R is because it has all those important trick bits are already installed.

Me? Having installed the Microtec ECU already, I would rather spend my money on a nice dash with a built in lap-timer to make the bike a little more purposeful and track focused.
