    New question here. Nicked rotor (julie)

    I recently endoed and my rotor hit off of a rock, i checked it for a bend and it's true, but there is a slight scrape on the braking surface of the rotor. Is there a way to fix this, or if i just run it will it work it's way in? It's not sticking too bad so it's rideable, if you all think it will work it's way back to normal. If this is damaging to the pads it doesn't really bother me because they will need replaced in the next few weeks either way.

    thanks

    Is there anything sticking UP off the surface that will score a pad? If not then leave it. If so then file it down and sand it reasonably smooth.

    no nothing seems raised off of the surface, but i'll double check and file if needed, thanks for the help.
