    Deglaze Rotor

    I figured out from another post I have glazed brake pads on my newish Hope brakes. From this post I realize I may have glazed rotors as well. Can someone tell me the best way to deglaze my rotors. Thanks!

    Well if itís anything like a doughnut the best way to deglaze is just to lick it off.

    I never had much luck with pads once they are smoked. I had a toasted rotor a while ago and what I did was take off the rotor and used really fine wet/dry sandpaper on a sanding block and gently sanded the whole side of each rotor evenly until the gazes was gone. If the rotors have deep groves already then this may not work.
