After market brake rotors

Anybody tried the Galfer wave rotors and/or EBC Pro Lites? Should I stay with the OEM? Thanks.

Probably after about 30,000-50,000mi. of use the OEM will be better than any of them.

I put EBC Pro-lites on my Triumph Tiger only because I warped three sets of the c**p stock rotors. The pro-lites seem real good, with no warping. I would'nt do this on a BMW unless the stock rotors are beyond the wear limit or there is some other real good reason to replace them.

A buddy of mine that rides a Tiger is looking for aftermarket rotors. He found out that there was a bad batch of rotors for the tigers, and there's no way of telling which are bad. You didn't warp them.. they were made with a propensity to warp.
I'll pass along the EBC Pro-lite source.
