Bigjohn or anyone else can maybe help. I have polished my front forks and now looking to polish the rotors to go with my chrome wheels I'm getting next week. What compound should I start with or should it be sandpaper then compounds? I do have an Eastwood polishing kit that I used for the forks.

Rotors are SS and polishing SS is much more difficult then aluminum. Plan on sanding with 80 and 160 grit for a good amount of time and using a SS specific buffing compound with is more abrasive.

I did one side of my front rotor, it laughed at 80 grit. I started with about 60 grit to even start to smooth it out and then it is a lot more work to get a half decend shine, every step takes at least twice as long. For sake of cost, time, and sanity this is one I say spend the $ to have someone else do it... I am.

Here is the one side of mine that I did, turned out ok but there is a lot of work to get it this far...







Hey, to those who already have polished rotors...

Which company did you use and what was the price???



Thanks

Im getting my wheels at Bikes2nv in Columbus Oh on Tuesday. They do offer polished rotors and I think they were around 90 a piece I think. I may just go ahead and add those to the cost.

BigJohn - did you use any motorized help with the sanding or all by hand?

It was all power sanding. The stainless that the rotors are made out of is way too hard to hand sand. I plan on getting my wheels from bikes2nv so I will just throw the rotors in too.
