As always, safety is a top priority. That's why it is so important to inspect your BMW motorcycle brake discs or rotors regularly. You'll want to have the optimum stopping power to avoid any potential collisions.
Brake rotors are what the brake pads clamp down on. They create the friction needed to stop the wheels from spinning. Sometimes, there are drilled holes in the rotor, which helps cool down the heat caused by braking. Slotted brake rotors help increase performance. They sweep away any dust or debris that may come through as you apply the brakes. In addition, they help even pad wear.
When Do You Replace BMW Motorcycle Brake Discs?
Just like other parts of your motorcycle, your disc brake rotors will eventually need to be replaced. On average, the rotors can last anywhere between 30,000 to 70,000 miles. Keep in mind, factors like aggressive driving and extreme weather conditions can also play a role. Below are a few warning signs that indicate it may be time to do so:
- Your brakes are pulsating
- They are highly discolored (usually blue)
- Visible warping or tears
- Vibrating while braking
- Squealing noises as you apply the brakes
