    I'd measure them first, see how much is actually left on them, probably very little if they need machining. If there is a fair bit there, then get them machined, clean the hub up with a wire wheel/brush and give it a lick of high temp black paint. They don't need anything more than that.

    They're 330mm and 315mm. Thickness is 30mm and 17mm.
    I know that people say that the minimum is stamped on the disk, but I can't find it.

    Does anyone know what it is?

    Oh!
    They're probably pretty close to minimum as it is. It will be 29-30mm and 16-17mm on the rears. New they will be 32mm and 18mm.

    Once you machine them, they'll probably be under minimum, hence why we're saying you probably shouldn't bother and just replace them.

    Thanks mate. That's what I was after.
    If they're going undersized, well it's a no brainer.

    Have spoken to a few brake places and after machining I should be alright.

    Question is now what was the original colour of the caliper, at the moment it looks like it's got a bit of blue on the face, but I'm pretty sure it is red. Can someone please confirm what colour. It's got 2 pot 330mm/315mm PBR set.


    Also, recommendations on what colour to do the hub, same or silver.

    Thanks.

    That is an original HSV colour, Prussion Blue that was used i think in the VT/VT2 range HSV's.
    I had a set of these fitted to my old VS as I didn't want undue attention by having the red ones fitted but still have decent size brakes under 17" wheels.
    Factory the caliper brackets were usually black and the disc hubs were silver before they rusted over.

    So these aren't the factory fitted brakes for this model?

    I'm not sure as I had only seen them on VT's previously, but no reason they couldn't have been std right through to VZ as they are all the same caliper and discs for the 330/315 brake set up.
