Bought TRW disks for the B a few months ago. They are holding up great and perform very well. Build quality is same or maybe better then OEM. (thicker)
I chose the standard disks bc I don't like the wavy stuff on the old girl. :D

Quite a few...mostly the ones that will hurt you due to self overrated driving abilities and lean angles... :D

If you buy the Chinaman discs, spin the bobbins as they are tight and are near lethal when used first owing to stiff lateral movement,knocking the calliper pistons=increase of the braking distance,Chinaman discs seemed (to me) to be stainless steel ,the better discs have a higher iron content/a little softer,so provide better braking.Cheaper to buy Chinaman discs from Aliexpress

I've used Chinese Arashi discs.. cheap..used em on road and track.. never had any issues on either of my bikes.
I appreciate people wouldn't risk it..but thats my experience.
