I've searched and came up with upgrades but, what about when to replace them?

How does one know when to replace rotors?

What to look for?

I just got the EBC HH pads put on because the stock units were low about 10% left.

I've got 25k on the bike with the recent pad replacement.

Eventually, I'd like to upgrade to better rotors for the rigors of track use but for now I would like to get comfy and proficient with the recent pads.

Btw, I already have SS lines which were great but with these new pads....WOW!

I don't get shimmies, braking is consistently strong and smooth.

I'm going to use OEM Suzuki rotors as an example...

The minimum thickness should be imprinted somewhere on the carrier. Suzuki uses "MIN.TH. 4.5mm" to signify what the minimum thickness should be (4.5mm). If it is less than that then they should be replaced. Normal rotor thickness is ~5.0mm

If the rotor is warped then of course itís going to need replacing. A vibration in the brake lever is a definite sign of a warped rotor.
