Cracked Disc

Does anyone know what these front discs are off ?

They fit the KR1S but yesterday found cracks around the holes in the right disc :shock:
I have a feeling they were from some Kawasaki 600 :?:

Maybe find a spare but it has to come off :evil:

They were thinner than KR1S discs but the minimum thickness was 0.5mm less too

300mm.

in the archive section , there is a topic of all the kawa's that use the same discs ( "other discs" ).

Been looking at alternative front brake discs and apart from EBC, are there any other decent aftermarket discs out there ?
Has anyone bought some and put a few thousand miles on them with no issues ?

Anyone had these on their bike ?
For EBC, they seem a fair price

Well ABE quoted £110 each side and that is using your old centres , so the EBC are looking good again !
