    Hope Floating Rotor Straightening

    What is the best way to straighten out a floating rotor? I put my new one on today and it is not straight.

    Take it back where you purchased it, should be covered under warranty.

    Straighten out the same as any rotor, by carefully bending with an adjustable wrench. The obvious difference with the two-piece rotor is that it's only the steel rotor you're trying to adjust - not the aluminium carrier - so the twisting/bending action you make with the wrench is much smaller. I tend to find the two-piece rotors easier to true.

    I've never owned a new set of Hope brakes that have come with a straight rotor.

    If it's new and you attempt to straighten it and it gets worse odds are your warranty will be void, at least throw the responsibility back to where you purchased it let them make the decision.
