Why are front discs so expensive? I can get a pair for £160 and they a thought of as cheapo rubbish.
I looks like to replace mine with some worth having and new pads is going to be £300 plus.

I am sure they are not mega expensive to manufacture:mad:

Because they can I guess.

It's like petrol really, you need it, so they can charge effectively what they like for it. What are you going to do about it?

It's all well and good your bike can do 160Mph (on a private track), but if you can't stop quickly it's no good. So they have you by the danglies. Like you said, they can't cost that much to make, but you can't do anything without them and I'm sure the manufacturers realise that.
