I have a 1997 S1lLightning and my rear rotor measures 4.75 mm thickness. The manual says minimum is 4.8mm so I am looking for a replacement. The EBC one is about $25 cheaper than the OEM on Ebay. $98.00 to $125 respectively. Does anyone have experience with the EBC? Are the OEM rotors worth the extra $?
Does anyone have a good used one for cheap?

I run the EBC front, its been great on the m2 I had and the s1w. Never tried the rear but I wouldnt hesitate to run it

Same story here, I've got the front on my 97 S1, never tried the rear. People like the front EBC rotors, but mine did manage to start warping slightly within a year. You don't notice it during normal riding, but if I squeeze the front brake hard enough I can feel it pulsing a little. I don't think that'd be a problem with the rear though, the rotors are so small and it's only a single piston caliper. I can't imagine you'd notice a $25 different between either of them.
