When I bought my bike it came with a pair of PFM disc as part of the spares kit, has anyone tried these and compared them to the standard ones ?.

I had a gpz500s that only has a single disc up front. Braking was always a bit marginal so when the disc warped I replaced it with a PFM cast iron one. Braking improved no end, I could even do stoppies! Rusted like buggery at the slightest sign of rain though.u
Need Break down cover? P.m. me.

Work well with either sintered or organic type pads but as mentioned they do rust quickly compared to OE.
