When you buy a pair of $500 rotors you hope you use them for a while. I have these rotors and have about run out of pad. I have heard many different opinions on machining them. Some say they can be cut and some say the cross drilled and slotted cannot be cut. These are also a two piece rotor. I decided to be safe and just get the rotor without the hat but I cannot find them and I'm not buying 600 dollars worth of rotors I already have, plus I don't have that money right now. So the bottom line question is: Can I turn these rotors 2 piece cross drilled slotted? Or is the rotor material hard enough that new pads will form to them and I don't have to do anything to them? Does anybody have the link to order just the rotor bands 13" EradiSpeed (Baer Brakes)? If I cannot get an answer I am going to try and turn them on the lathe at the risk of my rotors and the brake lathe at work (It'll buff out) and see what happens. Then we will have the answer. But I would rather work off some other persons experience of it than risk rotors I cannot afford to replace.
