- Warped rotor ? Temporary fixes ?
I use fingers. Spin the wheel, look carefully at the gap to the pads and see where it touches. Thumbs on the hub, fingers round the disk – the kind of pressure you can apply is usually enough to bend it just a fraction, which is ideal as you can do small increments until it’s straight. Gloves may be advisable if the disk edges are sharp or to avoid contaminating the rotor.Posted 4 years agotrail_ratMember
specific(park) tool used to be pretty much an adjustable with a fixed width jaw
have seen wheel jigs with dial gauges for checking out disk true
pulsing – are you absolutely sure the pads are not touching the rotor arms(are the rotor arms polished) as ive never felt pulsing for buckled rotors. It may be that the rotor track is not the right depth for the padsPosted 4 years agomrmonkfingerMember
Adjustable spanner works as well as anything. However, IME anything other than a minor warp will be very difficult to get back to straight again.
Rotors from the usual budget suspects (SS, etc) work just as well as the expensive ones, but it’s a bit of an arseache when you’ve pringled a pricey branded rotor.Posted 4 years ago
