Okay, so if you had to go with a set of rotors and calipers, what would u get?

I would personally rebuild the oem calipers and replace the rotors only if you had to. Rockymountain has galfer and tusk rotors for a decent price.

Rebuild your oem calipers & master cylinders with Shindy rebuild kits & get some nice braided lines & only replace your rotor's if needed like the norm said. You'll have under $300 into the entire brake system doing that. Did that to 2 of my R's & the oem brakes work amazing when there fresh.

It's very hard to beat 250R calipers especially after they were rebuilt with oem parts.

There a Japanese company that make repair parts for numerous machines. From my understanding they make the brake & carb rebuild kits for Honda & than Honda marks up the price once their name goes on the package. I've used 6 caliper rebuilds, 4 mc rebuilds & 8 carb rebuilds all from Shindy & haven't had any problems with any of them. Top quality stuff: trx250r shindy for sale | eBay

Okay, so the sound thats coming from all of my brakes, is like a grinding metal sound, how do I fix that? I'm not sure what it is, my rear brakes also haven't been blead in a long time

Probably your brake pads are shot and you are grinding the metal backer against the rotor

If you decide to do a full rebuild you'll wonder why you hadn't done it sooner. OEM brakes work very well. I'll be rebuilding a full set of OEM brakes for my 3rd R over this winter.
