Aftermarket brake rotors?

Does anyone , or HAS anyone, used aftermarket brake rotors on their RG? I'm looking specifically to replace my rear rotor as it has a bit of scalloping, or it's bent, which is causing some pulsation. I see a lot of used HD rotors on eBay in the $80 range but am hesitant to buy one for fear of having the same issue after installation. I have found a couple new aftermarket rotors that look solid and are much more affordable than a used stock piece. Have any of you had any experience with aftermarket rotors that you can share with me?

Your rotors can be turned by a machine shop if they are not too bad. I always use new rotors when I need to buy them and I get HD rotors.

Check Jireh Cycle.com. They have the best prices that I have found. They sell a lot of Ultima products that I have always found to be very good quality. I bought 2 front rotors for $60.00 each...........t

Went ahead and bought the Ultima rotor from Jireh. Hope it's worth it.

I put some full floating rotors on from the MOCO and they worked great until some beeaaatch used my bike for a brake on the highway. Rotors on the 09 were warped and lots of pulsation.
