What lightweight rear rotor are you using?

Contemplating which one to buy for my crossplane. What do you have, how much was it and how much weight did you save if you know? Thanks for any suggestions.

That's the one I'm thinking of buying right now, I added the guy on FB. Just curious if there's anything cheaper or lighter.

I've always gone with Galfer....only because they seem to be the easiest to get used. Not sure on the weight savings, but by feel, it's noticable - turn that into rotating mass = worth it (for a race bike anyway).

I have two of these OEM rotors cut by EDR. Sorry, don't know the exact weight but they are lighter.

By the way, the cost for this machine work is 90 bucks with sending in your own OEM rotor.

90 bucks is a good deal honestly and i'm sure its a pretty decent turn around time too.

Depending or not if they have any handy, it turned around for me in 3 days from when I sent it.

This rear rotor is Titanium and just weighs a few ounces . Have to use organic pads so it wont wear out .
I got it about siix years ago from Yoyodyne for a decent price and it was the last one .
Looking into having one made out of Aluminum next . Will weigh next to nothing . Then hook up one of Thorsten Duhrbans mini caliper setups that hides behind swingarm . Cant even see it from the side .
