Anyone know a good place to get rotors machined? Warped one of my discs and i'm just checking out what my options are. I'm not too crazy about shelling out another 300 bucks for a rotor!

if you are talking car rotors... anywhere will do a good job
waypastfast said:Just to let you in on some information about bike rotors. The thinner they get the faster they will warp. This holds true for cars and trucks as well. Sometimes with a bent or warped bike rotor you can persuade it with a hammer and a block of wood to straighten it out. But you could also break the rotor doing this

I have the same time, and three years (and 35,000 kms) later, my rotors are still fine.
Don't feel bad. I did the exact same thing with my first bike.
You're SOL on the rotor, though. You'll just have to pay the coin, and count yourself lucky you didn't dump the bike and crack something more expensive.
You have to have it Ground on a !! HEALD GRINDER !! I put up a Picture of one on here , It has a MAGNETIC CHUCK , And you put a CUP GRINDING Wheel in the Grinding QUILL . I Have one at Work it's Simillar to the One in the PIcture But it is a More MODERN version ( HAS a CNC CONTROLL On It )bk_cbr900RR said:Really? why can't they machine drilled rotors? i remember reading in an old post somewhere here that it can be done with todays new machining tools.
