Resurrecting an old but relevant thread here.
I have an otherwise perfectly good front brake rotor on my Vee that has lost the wave washers that hold the buttons tight. In a short period of time, the rotor has developed a disturbing amount of rotational play (not just side-to-side) which has resulted in some "grabby" braking and unpredictable feel.
After researching a way to replace these buttons, I have found no solution for the Vee - only BMWs and Ducatis. It pains me (and my wallet) to toss away a good rotor. It has hardly any wear on it other than the buttons, and perhaps the carrier where it has worn against the buttons.
In the meantime, I have mounted an old, almost worn out rotor while I think about what to do.
If I could replace the buttons, I'd be a happy camper.
Or failing that, if anyone's got one kicking around, I suppose I could use a used rotor...
