    Try tightening your rotor bolts. They may be loose and if used, sheer off the disc mounts on the hub

    check your bolts

    check your rotor bolts make sure they did not bottom out before the rotor was tight.

    Your bolts

    your rotor bolts are the six screws that hold your rotor onto your hub. take the wheel off and see how it's connected. bottoming out them means: were the bolts too long so that they hit the hub (or something) that prevented them from seating completely. make sure there is still room under the end of the bolt as well as making sure they are tight

    hope that helps

    yep thats it

    sorry for the terms I used I could have made it easier to understand. On some hubs it can be a big Problem if the screws hit bottom before they clamp the rotor it can snap the hub. A good way to check is to screw the bolts in with out the rotor ( do not tighten) and then see if the rotor fits between the head of the screw and hub.
