I have an extra front rotor with about 15k miles on it if you want it. I replaced both of mine after a low speed crash. The one I have is true.

Yeah pretty much the same as Peejay noticed it more the higher the speed I was braking from. Then like he said at very gentle braking at slow speed.

I put EBC Vee rotors on mine. They had a brake shudder somewhere in them for about a thousand miles. I could never figure it out. Totally fine now.

If you do install new rotors, ORDER NEW ROTOR BOLTS. Those things are single use only and you will have a damn hard time reusing the old ones if you try.

Guy’s, just out of couriossity. What does your brakes do when you noticed this? If I brake with my frontbrake I feel a soort of pulsating braking, not being tha ABS. The stopping power is there, no worries on that. I’ll have a look at my disks when I get back.

I feel a slight pulsating too but it doesn't worry me, it's not that bad and doesn't affect the stopping power. If it got bad I would address it sure.

I wasn’t wurried also but noticed it became more and more. Now, with the new disks installed, I notice no pulsating at all. After Reading on this forum about it, that it could return because of a flaw in the ruim, I wil keep an eye on it.
