    Default 888 Corsa Brake Rotor Carriers & Bimota DB2 Carriers

    Thought some of you might like to know that Bimota DB2 front brake rotor & carriers are identicle to 888 Corsa.

    That's interesting. I didn't know that!

    I got a pair of the SSSP/SP iron full floaters off of a DB3. Same rotors.

    MIke,
    Are you sure they are the same as the Corse rotors? I checked elsewhere and most places list the rotors for the DB2, DB3, DB4 as being the same.

    I pulled a set from a DB3 and they are now on my 851, fit perfectly.

    The 93-94 DB2 had the deep offset Corse type rotors. The DB2EF had the same Antera wheels (and rotors) as the DB3 and DB4, and used the same rotors as the street Ducatis.

    Seems to be all centered around the wheel hub width's. If I recall rightly....... Corsa has 90mm hub width and 851/888's have 115.......therefore greater rotor carrier needed for Corsa.

    Thanks Reed.

    All good info' but are the Bimota discs (surely these bikes were made in fewer numbers?) any easier to find than the now NLA Ducati/Brembo items?

    250 DB2's were made...... so yes, they aren't many of them around, but their numbers add to the numbers of Corsa rotors available to us all. That's the point..... the 80--150% increase in rotors that fit the 50--60 corsa (??) machines out there.

    I know one Corsa owner that it took him 5--6 yrs to find a Corsa rotor. Had he known about the DB2 fittment, it probably would have only been 1--2 months. This is what I'm talking about.

    I've been looking for Bimota rotors for quite a while. They rarely surface. 900SS SP rotors come up quite often.

    But you can't use 900 SP rotors on a corsa without a spacer between the rotor carrier and wheel.......right ?
