Can you provide more detail about the finish and size?

The product details mention that these are polished. Is that the case? I am looking for a rotor that will provide strong braking performance on my FXDX, and am concerned that a polished finish may provide less braking friction than a natural finish. Also, what is the diameter of these rotors? Thank you!
Asked by: Tarik

What is the composition of the floating outer brake rotor?

Is the brake rotor (where the brake pad meets the rotor) made of billet steel? I am looking at installing these rotors and new brake pads. I have read some reviews on aftermarket pads (specifically semi sintered) that may be detrimental to some rotors, especially billet steel, as these type of pads are more abrasive. How about organic/kevlar pads? My plan is to mount these on an 06 FLHTCUI. So, I want pads that are going to stop me and not excessively wear out the rotors.

Hello UltraDave, If you install this rotor with Harley Davidsons brake pads you will not have any issues. They are designed to work together for maximum braking and wear resistance. Thank you!

Can this rotor also be used on the rear wheel?

2013 Forty-Eight that I have installed the HD XR 1200 Left Front Brake Caliper Part No. 42943-08. (See attached photo) and I will install this in the front. And want to confirm if this floating rotor can be used on the stock 48 rear wheel? I would like to have matching rotors on the bike.
Asked by: Wachuko
Hi Wachuko. Unfortunately rotor 44358-00A would not work on the rear is a front rotor only. The matching vivid black rear rotor only fits 2000-2010 Sportsters, so that wouldn't work for you. H-D offers a polished rear brake rotor (41500005) that will fit on the rear wheel of 2011-later Sportsters that you may be interested in.

I assume this rotor works for both front and back wheels

Asked by: Anonymous
Anonymous, No, the Vivid Black Floating Brake Rotor ONLY fits FRONT positions on the bike. Front/Left or Front/Right. Hope this helps!
