try bending it back or get a new one.... unless it's waaving like 1/2 inch then it's not bad... you can always pick on up cheap on ebay.Lickqid said:My brake rotors havea a "wobble" to them, I don't know how to say it. It rubs the rotor at points, I can hear the rubbing when i'm riding, and it bugs the s**t outta me. SHould I be worried about this at all? Is there any way to fix it on my own?
They're warped. You can gently push on the arms of the rotors where it has a wobble to push it back into shape. Incorrectly torqued bolts or incorrect order could also cause the rotor to warp.Lickqid said:My brake rotors havea a "wobble" to them, I don't know how to say it. they rub the pads at points, I can hear the rubbing when i'm riding, and it bugs the s**t outta me.

could you post a link of this toolTNC said:If you don't feel confident in trying it at home with an adjustable "crescent" wrench, most shops have a cool 3-piece tool set of weird looking forks that fit brake rotors, and when used in pairs or all 3 at a time, they can straighten out some pretty whacked rotors. I've straightened 2 or 3 rotors at the shop with these things that I would have bet didn't have any hope. They're also not that expensive from some tool makers if one is a home mechanic/racer type who frequently dings rotors in rocky situations.
That's all you need right there. I use a thin cloth between the wrench and the rotor as well, as to not damage the rotors.MarzocchiFork said:I use a small adjustable wrench to slide over the rotor and tweak as necessary. Make only small, small adjustments.
Dont think buy new rotors. Galfer makes some cool original wave rotors or the stockers are usually cheaper.Lickqid said:I'm not sure what anyone means by the adjusting using the wrench, can someone describe in more detail? or send a pic? thanks for all the help though
