Brembo full floating rotors

I have an 01 R6 that came with Brembo rotors and M/C installed already. These are different than stock rotors because they have about 1mm of play when you grab the rotor by your hand and move it side to side. After doing some research, I've read that the brembo's are a full floating, mean the rotor itself floats on a button thats secured by a small clip. Does any one else have these rotors and do they rattle a lot ? Any special maintenance precautions I need to take ?

Nevrmind. I found it. they do rattle because of the buttons and the retaining clip.

I had a set of EBC pro-lite rotors on my old 2001 GSXR 750, and they moved about 1/4 of an inch.

1mm sounds fine..
full floating rotors move on their carriers, it lets them center in the caliper for less brake drag and 'float' unimpeded for unrestricted expansion n contraction during repeated thermal cyclings
the only bad part is the little bit of rattle that reminds you they are full floaters

when they have too much play you have to replace the carriers

i got full floating also, it rattles if you shake it up and down but it shouldnt move if you side to side then i think that means something like the o rings are out of shape.

my opinion : when rotors r new,the rivets r tight and doesn't move or rattle at all. but after in use condition (depending alotof facts) some how the rotors got excessive heat (may be from brake pads material or extended heavy braking period) so causes the rivets "melted" or heat expanded and becomes loose and got play or rattle.field fix : either get another set or get new rivets set and press them in !!!.
