    The 'BRAKING' rear rotor would seen to have managed the heat better than the Slovo front rotor but it was definitely getting hot after the second 70mph to 5mph leg of the bed-in. I think the procedure originally posted takes the aftermarket rotors to the limit of their molecular composition LOL. Expect lesser quality steel with aftermarket rotors if you're thinking to swap out OEM. OR maybe the 'sintered' pads bring it on a little more intense than standard brake pads.

    I end this with a suggestion to back off the posted bed-in procedure just a little with aftermarket rotors to avoid the burn. They just don't make em like they used too SHOCKING I know.

    It still sounds like you are a bit overzealous in your bedding process, and a rear rotor will have to work MUCH harder to duplicate the process described for the front rotor.

    You just need to build some heat evenly in the pads and rotor, then let it cool completely.

    Any smoke this time?

    I'm sure I pushed these products to their limits. No smoke, no bluing just a little golden glaze on the outer rim and some paint flake on the edge as seen in the center image. The rotor looks great and I'm very satisfied with Buell brake performance at this point. I would recommend the BRAKING rear rotor if you tire of the OEM.

    Which way do I mount my EBR rotor?
    "The 6mm rotor requires the step to be facing outside, the 5mm rotor doesn't matter"

    Whats the torque spec for the EBR rotor hardware?
    Recommended rotor bolt hardware torque WAS 25-27ft/lbs. It was UPDATED to 16-18 Ft/lbs!!

    What order do I put the EBR hardware on?
    Heres a screenshot of the pdf they sent which shows proper hardware install order and torque.


    And a close up of the hardware:


    Bolt head, concave side of washer to bolt head, square rotor insert (see proper direction), copper washer, and sleeve…

    What about the not-so-square thing?
    Like this:


    6-bolt torque order. First, snug all bolts then:
    Thank you very much !
