    I’m trying to find a suitable replacement for my rear brake disc, but I’m only coming up with 12mm thick vented. This is 200mm in dia. and ~5mm wide. It’s a floating disk and is used with a Brembo caliper. I’ve read about a spacer that could be used with the Brembo caliper to use a 12mm disc, but then I’d have to buy the carrier as well as the disc.

    Anyone know where I could find a replacement?

    As you can see it’s a bit worn!

    Steve,
    what ever rotor you decide on, consider going from a 3 bolt to a 6 bolt. They are less likely to break as yours did.

    Mine didn’t break, it just wore out where the pins attach. I should have replaced the pins sooner I suppose.

    I’m pretty sure this is an old CRG Brembo setup, I’m not sure I’ll ever find one so it looks more likely that I may need to replace the whole system.

    We’ve had this problem after a couple of years running the three pin rotor. Ours broke during a road race. Fortunately we had front brakes and no one was hit by the flying rotor. Your rotor is worn and also broken. Still suggest you upgrade to a six pin unless this is a fun kart.

    Hi Steve  We have a bunch of brm karts that have that set up and yes you have to watch the fastners for wear. Have found that you can adapt a ven 4 fastner to work. you can also use the rotor and hub for a replacement will work you may have to slightly move caliper.  As stated  before the 5 pin hub is better and will last a while longer. Hope this will help.

    Thanks for the tips guys. It looks like I can buy a brand new brake setup (master cylinder, caliper, rotor and hub) for less than the cost of the VEN04 rotor. I might just do that and throw the rest of this CRG junk in the trash :)

    Steve- If that is a 40mm setup, I’ve got something you could use. hub, disc, and spacers for the Brembo.
