    So, a couple of questions.



    What is the stock bolt pattern of the CX500 rotor?

    What is the stock diameter of the CX500 rotor?

    What is the stock offset of the CX500 rotor?



    I'm looking for a rotor that will bolt to the CX500 front wheel, which is 310mm in diameter, and approx 0.75 to 1.0 offset. (I will have to measure to be sure).



    Charles.

    Is there any concern over the thickness of the rotor being half that of the stock CX rotor? I would think braking pressure would be reduced, would it not? Especially if your pads are worn down.

    Moto-Mucci,

    the rotor thickness may not be an issue since you have also changed to the CB900F calliper and bracket........and that amount of travel will be taken up with a new set of pads + when was the last time any one used up a set of pads for there to be a potential issue..... just a thought. When I bought my CX it still had original pads!

    Thinking about it even more ( I always have after thoughts ) ..........Brake pressure might not be an issue if when you fully pump up your brakes top up the brake fluid in the reservoir, and when the calliper releases it only lets off slightly but not to the point that it returns to a full open position





    just my thoughts and I hope it helps

    I guess I don't know enough about the internal workings of a caliper. What is it that is returning the caliper piston? I would think it's the actuation of the piston in the master cylinder that's actuated by the brake lever. If that's the case then the piston should return to the same spot each time the lever is fully released. It's basically sucking the caliper piston back in right? (theory)



    Unless it's the rotor itself that is "pressing"/forcing the piston back into place. In that case the caliper piston would always return the brake pads back to a certain distance from the rotor and your previous statement may be correct.



    Now that I think more about it, it's probably the latter since there's always the issue of prying the caliper pistons back into the caliper when you've got the caliper off to replace pads.

    i copied you and got this rotor (open box on ebay for 130ish )



    im going to try and be using an 86 cb450sc caliper. for research in other threads i think it should be the same. i also after much confusing research think i found some ebc sintered pads that will work (fa69hh). we shall see how it goes.

    Moto-Mucci,

    its not so much as sucking the caliper back into its original place, its more like alleviating pressure enough for the pads not to drag on the rotor
