Default F4i's front rotors

Hello guys. I'm wondering if there is any difference between the front rotors and if it is possible to replace the right one with the left one. Any feedback appreciated.

They're directional, so you're not supposed to switch sides. Wether you can get away with it or not, that I don't know.
My guess would be that unless you're riding the bike at or near its braking limits, it probably won't make a noticeable difference, but don't quote me on it.

They are directional, just like a tire.

Piece of mind > f'ing up your bike


Just get the correct rotor

Yep, what they said. If you look at the rotors closely you will notice the little directional arrows.

Wow. After removing the wheel and looking at both rotors, I have realized that they were installed wrong, meaning the left was installed on the right side and vice versa. So I thought I needed the right one, but in fact I need the left one, which I have already ordered through ebay for $56 shipped. Just waiting for it to get here so I could finish up the front of my stolen beauty. Thanks for your input guys. The only thing I am wondering about is what exactly could happen if they are installed the way they were.

The brakes wouldn't cool as effectively? The hole patten isn't very "directional". Like Incognito said, unless the brakes are seeing maximum use, NBD. But kaz has a very valid point.
