Greetings,

Been a lurker on this site and the tech info has always been great.

Bike 2000 RC51 just passed 60,000 miles last week.

( I think) the front rotors are either worn or one has a slight bend. After 50 mph a decent pull on the front break gives a vibration. The lever is the same as it has always been. I am starting to suspect a slightly bent rotor. Where can I get replacement OEM rotors and what is a reasonable price to pay for a decent set. I think thickness and straightness is key but how to I check if it's an online seller.

Any comments greatly appreciated :)

Have you mic'ed your rotors for wear? Have you tried a visual run-out test?
I've had two brake rotors straightened by a frame straightener shop. They came out good and true.
Otherwise, I've seen rotors for sale here and on Speedzilla. Most of the members with a decent post count are pretty darn reliable and honest.
But you can always ask for pictures showing mic readings or a video showing a run-out test is suppose...
