Need to replace my front rotors and wondering if the RC rotors will work on stock rims? Thanks  :cheers:

    I had asked if you could put OEM rotors on RC wheels and was told no.  The bolt pattern doesn't match.

    Certain year R6 and R1 rotors will work.... my guess would be some off a warrior also and other Yamaha bikes
    Lean till it grinds , then lean some more ..

      You can always call and ask if they can make the set  you want and drill the holes to match...  :shrug:

      I don't think they could/would do that.  The distance from the axle to the bolt holes on the RC rotors look to be much closer than the bolt holes for OEM. There's no metal at the same location that they could drill into. Plus without extensive QC involved, I doubt they'd do it because of liability reasons.
