I had to replace my magura rotors with SRAM rotors back when you couldn’t get parts, it was all I could find. They worked fine with the MT-7s, just had to pump the brakes a bit to get the pistons out but had no issues after that.Even the 1.8mm thickness ones mate? (Standard floating rotors)
The XTs are good brakes, I have them on one of my Amish bikes. I would do a rotor upgrade and call it good.I think I'm going to stick with the XT's for now. reading loads of reviews and I cant find anything to convince me I should change them. Maybe after I have done a few longer descents I will have a better idea of how they compare to the Hope Tech 3 E4's I have been using on all previous bikes (which in my opinion lacked ultimate power but had loads of modulation). My only gripe with the XT's is the on/off nature on dry loose or sloppy surfaces.
I’m running these too. They work great, the thicker rotor improves lever feel with a slightly earlier bite on my mt5s.I’ve just fitted some mt7 brakes and used the TRP 2.3mm thick rotors for half the price of similar rotors. Got a pair of 203mm rotors for £50 posted when they were in stock a couple of weeks ago.
