    I am having a hard time trying to source a new front brake rotor.

    That is to say, I found one at Stadium, but the cost of shipping will be (roughly) equivalent to buying from the dealer...

    The current rotor has some awful ridges in it...how thin can I machine it? (Once I get new pads).

    Page 43 of the supplement manual gives minimum brake disc thickness.

    You don't have to buy a OEM brake disk, there are many other good manufactors.



    You can search for the Lucas MST355 and the EBC MD6067D brake disks. They will fit on the TW.

    It is possible, that other bikes will be shown:

    - DT 125 1991-2006

    - XG 250 Tricker 2005-2006

    - YZ 125 1986-1989

    - YZ 250 1988-1989

    - YZ 490 1985-1988

    and some more bikes.

    If your rotor has awful ridges in it I would say it's ready for replacement. While you can machine a rotor the thinner it gets the more likely it will warp, causing brake pulsation and a crappy brake feel. If the oem rotor costs about the same as an aftermarket I would personally go with the dealer. The quality of the oem is known and you have someone to yell at if things go wrong. Just my opinion.
