Hello,

I have a basic question, as you can tell, I am not a DYI person with regards to this.

When ordering rotors (mine is dual piston design caliper), why would it matter if the ROTOR is a 1 or 2 piston design ?

Thank you.

They probably used two different sized rotors, and the caliper design of one or two pistons is the easiest way to differentiate between the two.

Yes, the dual piston design is for the heavier duty brakes, uses a 330mm dia. x 30mm thick rotor disc. Single piston uses 325mm dia. x 19mm-20mm thick disc.
