    Default Full Floating 888 SP5 Discs Wanted

    Looking for a pair of standard road, fully floating, front discs for the 888. The new Series Oro from Brembo are black centres and don't have the original star pattern anymore. Anyone have some, either new copies, or good used ones, with very clean gold section (not in need of repainting)?

    Please PM me if you have a pair you would be willing to sell to a worthy cause that's trying to get another one back on the road!

    Thanks in advance,

    Chris

    Thanks Jimmy. I saw those......Would prefer some used original ones and in hindsight, happy to get some untidy ones and repaint as the centres can be removed, unlike the riveted ones, as long as they aren't too worn.

    Centers are anodized, not painted. They were also used on other bikes, so you'll have an easier time searching if you look for models like the 900SS SP, and the 916/996SPS.

    Thanks for the comments. Found a very reasonable original Brembo set in Australia, plus another set of outer disks and all the bobbins/buttons for spares (carriers were messed up).

    All in £400. Not too bad.

    Thanks for everyone's comments and advice.
