Default Best rotors for a 2001 Road King Classic

Need to replace my rotors, any recommendations on what I should buy? Most rotors I see range from around $150 to $200 online, I'm fine with that price range. Are the floating rotors are worth it on my old 2001 RK? Any suggestions on pads?

Iím happy with the HD floaters on mine. For pads, Lyndalls are good for the older Nissen brakes. On my Bremboís I prefer to run stock pads.

I have a 2004 and went with some used HD floating rotors and was very happy with the smooth braking, I also run Lyndall pads.

Just installed rear chrome floating rotor on my friend’s 04 Road King. They even come with new chrome rotor bolts. We paired the rear rotor with EBC pads.
