Warped rotor? repair or replace?

So im pretty sure my front right side rotor is slightly warped. my question, can it be fixed/straightned or do you just trash both of them for a new set? if so any recommended brands for rotors and pads? i mainly just ride at the track these days but do some street riding so id be looking for something that can take a little track abuse but not full race. bike is an 08 gsxr 600. thanks

Brembo or Galfer rotors if money isn't an issue. Braking Technology makes some nice stuff as well.

Galfer Rotors are top notch.

Make sure you use new pads with new rotors.

A quick cheap fix would be a used replacement OE rotor from a reputable dismantler or take your chance on ebay!
