EBC makes pretty good stuff. So does ISR in Europe…

Cast iron rotors for any application other than some modern day superbikes is non-existent. I’ve seen a few Turbo’s with EBC rotors but that’s as fancy as you’re gonna get with the stock front-end setup. Unless, someone knows of some pieces/parts that I’m not aware of.

I guess you can look at Webike Japan though. They have some trick parts for the Gpz’s, mostly the 900’s though.

Later, Doug
