Keith,

from the looks your 'new' ones are not OEM... wonder about their approximated lifespan...

And on rotors worn down that much as your previous ones, I'd consider a caliper overhaul too... those pistons must have been really exposed...

Cleaned up the pistons before pushing them back in not that bad really (i think they have been off recently).

Hey if i didn't know you Martin i could take offence at that ;) they are brand new discs and the receipt and date of fitting will go with the bike.

The guy who had it before me was a minelayer :(

With rotors worn down as shown for sure... :roll: Wonder that you didn't cut down the price over that...

Any other servicing-neglect you had to find?
