although it sounds like you have warped rotors.
im assuming its the pads or the rotors, but ive never locked them up or anything like that, just normal use, what could have caused them to warp?

I first thought it was my rotors too. I changed them out with brand new wave rotors and it still did it.

Hadn't had the experience with 600rrs, but lonestar's 954r and trailerdgsxr6's were slightly bent, seen with a dial indicator and would cause vibrations. we bent them out(due to impact damage.)

But sounds like you got some good contacts and comments; they'll set you up... but fix this soon! Brakes are kinda important
