Rear Brake rotor

The rear brake rotor is scored, but not like the brake pad revits scored it, the whole rotor has groves in it, so is this the way it comes, I just purchased the bike last week, it is a beautiful 06 stratoliner, also the front rotors are smooth.

I don't remember any groves or lines on the part that the pads contact on my rotars.

Can't speak for Strats ect, I run an 1100, but I figure it is 6 of one half dozen of the other I can see no reason for groves in the rotors other than it's pad time, or the last guy who had it, done some neglect stuff An 06, if not already, should be more than ready for new pads. Just me. Ride Safe

21,000 miles on my 07 and neither front nor back is grooved yet.

Red Liners don't achieve enough forward momentum to cause even the most minute amount of wear on it's brake parts.

I can only imagine that the previous owner had wore down the rear pads to the bone. Is the rotor gaulled on both sides? If It only has grooves on one side then you may have problems with either the rotor or the caliper isn't floating.

mine is just like yours. i bought the bike new. the rear pads were worn pretty low but never touched the steel backing. there was .03/.05 thickness of pad left. when i first saw the disk i thought i ran it right down to nothing because the disk was worn so badly. when i changed the pads and there was still material on the backing i was shocked. the front disks are still smooth. rear is rough. Oh, the rear disk doesnt have the torn galled look like when the steel backing makes contact. it is just worn with circular ridges. there are no rivets on these pads they are sintered to the backing. soft disk? i dont know.
