If it more or less quits wiggling once it's hot, it's fine.

i have a Braking floating oversize wave rotor and it has a lot of movement, it makes a clicking noise when you push the bike, but its not noticeable when riding.

My stock front disc on my 07 somehow ovaled the rivets holding it together.It ended up haveing a TON(almost a 1/2 inch) of slop in it and it tighted up but it was still way noticeable.The bike had 14 hours on it.We got the dealer to call yamaha and they took it back and we got a new one for free.
