    I want to pick up a set of Braking rotors for my bike, but I'm not sure what size to get. I'm running Hayes HFX-9 brakes with 8" F and 6" R. They are available in 203 mm, 200mm, 165mm, and 160mm. Does anyone know which size would be the one to get? Thanks in advance!

    You need a 150 and a 200. They should be making 150's. If they don't then just upgrade to 8 inch in the rear.

    No, it's a 160mm for a hayes 6" You can actually use a 203 or a 200 for the 8"

    Go-ride. The rotors look bad ass and they're 45g lighter than Shimano or Hayes per rotor.

    You could always call them, just to be sure exactly what you need. They are cool to deal with.

    I think a small rotor in the back is a good idea; lessens the chance of bending.

    I think he is saying he is buying the rotors from Go-Ride.

    To be more specific Itll be stamped on the inner portion of teh rotor But the rear should be a 160 and front should be a 203

    Yeah, and the company is called "Braking". They're the wave rotors Jeremy McGrath has on his moto.
