Scrubbed rotors: how do they look? - April 2, 2011, 12:33 PM

Check them out. I'm trying to have them scrubbed, but I've never done it before. I thought that you're supposed to get all the spots and shit off, but scrubbing with a scrubbie leaves some spots but removes others. Is it supposed to look 100% clean once I'm done?? just look at the pics and lemme know. I was using green scrubbies and brake clean, don't post "get a honer" or "get them blasted"

one I haven't scrubbed next to one I've scrubbed:



One I haven't scrubbed yet:


The one I did scrub:


KTM RC8R
KTM RC390 race
Yamaha R6 race
Honda CRF50 mini

I was told you should get them bead blasted. I am certain, someone here that is a actual motorcycle mechanic, can give you a better answer then mine.

I've been told you can get good results with a scrubbie as well, but if blasting is available, do it. I'm trying to scrub them myself first to see what results I can get.

Nick you look like shit, go hide yo kids

I never noticed a loss of feel, if there is loss, it would have been gradually degrading. I just noticed that it started to glaze, so I decided that while I had my wheels off, I would learn all about rotors, pads, and glazing. I've learned a shitload, but now I'm trying to determine what types of marks are supposed to come off, and what seems to be just permanent discoloration.

Beadblast or grind them. Using a scuff pad does not really do anything. The pad material is embedded in the rotor. We have a process at RNR that works very well.

Not to thread jack, but how often should this be done?

Joe, grind them.

Scuffing them by hand won't provide much improvement, if any.

I would think maybe an automobile shop MIGHT be able to do this, in addition to a bike shop?

I would suggest taking them to a bike shop and having them done properly.

It's VERY hard to tell from the photo but is there a lip developing on the first photo; left rotor??? (might just be the angle/lighting)


What do you value more? Life or Image?
