Default Rotor identification help???

Hi,

My husband and I ride a 2004 Victory Kingpin, and we just had to replace the back brakes and rotor. We ordered both the brakes and rotor on eBay from two different sellers. The brakes seem to be fine, but we had a problem with the rotor - actually, it would be more of a problem with the seller of the rotor...

The rotor we bought in the auction was supposed to be for a 2004 Kingpin, and the picture of the rotor in the auction matched our rotor exactly. However, when we received the rotor, neither one of us paid enough attention to notice that what we received did not match the picture in the auction and it wasn't the correct rotor for the bike. Because we had a couple weeks of no time to ride or even look at our bike ( ) it took a while to realize that we had the wrong rotor. Luckily, another Kingpin rider in the area had the rotor we needed and was kind enough to give it to us ( ) so we were able to replace the brakes and rotor and have a great ride over the weekend.

The problem is now we have a mystery rotor and an unresponsive eBay seller who won't reply to our questions about returning the rotor we received for a refund. We have no idea if this rotor is for any Victory motorcycle, Kingpin or not, and if it is, what year. I am hoping that someone here will be able to identify this rotor so we can try to re-sell it on eBay with the proper specifications.

Sorry if this is a dumb question! I would appreciate any help.

OK, for some reason my attached picture of the rotor isn't showing up...looks like it's because of a low post count. I don't know of any other way to display a picture of the rotor other than link to another forum where I asked the same question with the picture: http://www.kingpincruisers.net/compo...4811#msg14811/

Apparently, you image is blocked because you don't have enough post yet. (That's what it says on my screen anyway.)

The better thing may be to look for the casting number on the rotor itself. Most casting numbers are tied to the actual part number for most manufacturers. Simply punch that cast number into google and see what comes up. More than likely, you'll get a rotor part number with the application as a description.

Thanks! I looked on the rotor and only see this:

MIN.TH. 4.5mm

Then in another spot it says:

5K

Do you think the MIN.TH. 4.5mm is the casting number? I'll look for it on Google and see what I find.

No. That stands for Minimum Thickness. That's for how far down the shop can grid the rotor for it to remain safe.

Haha...I found the minimum thickness thing in about 2 seconds on Google...it totally makes sense now! Unfortunately, there are no other numbers on the rotor other than 5K. The rotor was used but in good condition when we bought it, so maybe there was a casting number on it at one time but not anymore.

I'll wait a while to see if anyone knows what kind of bike(s) this rotor will fit, because I hate to list it on eBay without knowing what I'm selling. (too bad our seller wasn't so considerate!)

It's time for you trade that bike in for a Hayabusa imo.
