Product review: EBC replacement brake discs

Time tested: four months

What’s good? These are pattern replacement discs (£174.19) for my SDR200 project. The Little Yamaha was never officially imported to the UK, meaning that some of the parts are very difficult to source. So I was pleasantly surprised when I discovered EBC had them listed as in stock on their website.

They’re made in Britain to the exact same dimensions as the originals, and are machined out of rolled stainless steel and coated in zinc to prevent corrosion. They fit perfectly. All EBC discs are designed to be used with their brake pads, so I’ve teamed them up with a set of their organic FA Series pads (£17.02).

What’s not? They’re a bit costly but it’s the price you have to pay for quality pattern parts.
