    I've use HF jack stands and HF magnetic dial indicator to measure wheel runout, so I doubt much harder to do rotors

    Maybe it's from the suspension? I just learned that a bottomed out fork will bounce when braking. Some out-loud thinking: Check that your fork legs are parallel, wheel is square with forks, and check your fork oil levels and preload shims for consistency....

    But wait for confirmation from others before doing any of the above since I'm just learning this myself.

    The HF indicator is awesome. It's probably my favorite all-time purchase from there. If I was doing it again I'd get the one with the flexible clamp, assuming it's the same indicator. The magnetic stand is crap.
