How to source a brake disc that is no longer available

Post by NigelL321 » Mon Jan 08, 2018 8:50 pm

Posting this in case this is of use to others who are struggling to locate spare discs.

I used http://thediscdoctor.co.uk/index.htm to get a new rear disc for my 2014 Gas Gas Cami. But would apply to other flat discs.

(Gas Gas no longer supply this part after they were taken over by a new owner last year. Spent around 6 months trying Gas Gas UK and my usual spares - dealer Haines Motorcycles but neither had any luck with Gas Gas HQ. Even ordered one from a Spanish dealer only to have it cancelled as the factory said no. The price was more than I paid for the custom one).

I just supplied a sketch with the critical dimensions. Or you could send your old disc or a photo copy of the disc with the actual outside diameter.

Part was delivered in under 2 weeks and is made of ground stainless plate. Great service.
