Galfer Brake Discs

Post by nick280 » Mon Dec 28, 2015 8:49 am

Hi,

Does anybody have any knowledge on Galfer brake discs? I'm thinking of replacing my warped from discs with them.

They look nice, aren't daft money and talk the talk, but I've never heard of them before.

Cheers.

I know a few have put them on Tuonos and have been pretty happy with them, I think they all got them from Calsport anorl.

Galfer has been around for a while, I've used them on quite a few race bikes. Quality stuff for sure.

Maybe they have different suppliers. My 1290 SA is Galfer. Seems odd right enough when it has Brembo callipers.

Just to follow up on this really.

I've had my Galfer brake discs fitted for 1000 miles now and they are spot on. I fitted the Galfer sintered pads with them and the braking is noticeably better, not overly powerful but better than they were.

I'd recommend them if anybody is thinkng of fitting these over the standard disc. They look pretty cool too :D
