Unhappy wave disk brakes from China??

It seems that my bike has a front disk bended, when I drive fast and apply brakes I feel like a high vibration (like a cell phone vibration) but too much, the brake lever is vibrating too, the mirrors shakes as well.
Has anybody some experiece using the cheap chinese disk brakes??
Im goin to check my wheel, will look for the bended area an see if I can put it back using a wrench..........
If it does not work.... will buy some aftermarket ebay rotors.... or sell my bike

no experience with them, but i wouldn't trust them. Brakes are not something i'd want to take the chance on.
I bet Ben from RC51parts.com can get you a set of used OEM rotors in good shape and not warped for cheap. I would just buy OEM unless you are prepared to drop a lot of cash on aftermarket.

The EBC discs are probably fine too, as a cheap replacement.

Something I've found is that my front wheel vibrates when I hit the brakes if the balance weights have fallen off the wheel. I need to take mine back to where I got tires and have some new ones put on.

A friend of mine got the chinese discs, the wheel vibrated without the brakes being used, that is the discs did not run concentric to the wheel,.He did get a set that worked, but what a PITA

They are just brakes. Not too important. Roll the dice and see what you get.

Thanks for the advice, I will take off the wheel with disks on and see if it has to re balace,yesterday I installed the wheel following the indications of the owners manual, was thinking if it is not well aligned, everything looks fine...
will see EBC and check the shipping cost to my country,but first will check twice and see if mine still works as usual, thanks to all

I agree. People give brakes and tires wayyy to much credit. Run em to the cords and keep riding till the squeaking stops!
