where do you buy rotors?

I have about 20k miles on my bike and the original rotors are a little grooved. I'm going to see if I can get the resurfaced, but I'd really like new ones. The problem is that nobody seems to carry anything for the 750 and the local dealership wants over 200 bucks. Where do you all go for rotors?

Bikebandit.com carrys EBC rotors. Looks like its $139.20 per rotor. Certainly beats the $287.20 per rotor for stock rotors from the same.

I'm sure there's other sources.

I see this is your first post. WELCOME to the forum. Read the vulcan versus, check your splines if you havent allready, yadda yadda yadda.

Dude, whadda ya think people do when they're dumb enough (me) to run the pads down to the metal? Grooved em and warped em. Did that on an old bike that at the time had NO rotors available. I had instant antilock brakes!
