RV-6A brake rotors part number and normal thickness.
 
Hello,

Was told that these were worn too thin by a local mechanic. Anyone know the part number for these rotors and the normal thickness of them? I don't know if it matters but attached is the brake assembly part number.

Thank you!

Charles

Thank you for the numbers! Why are Cleveland rotors more than twice the cost? Do they have that better performance?

Certainly they do for Cleveland.

Its just a name
 
They are a brand name and they charge more.
My Rapco parts perform just as well.

Parker Hannifin owns Cleveland = large overhead, crazy pricing. Great opportunity for Rapco and Grove.

I priced the pistons for the Master cylinders. 2x more than the entire Master cylinder from Grove.
