I have a '06 Harley Dyna and the rear brake rotors warped after 3,000 km. I live in Tokyo and am new to motorcycles. The Japan HD dealer said I must be braking too hard <-- this is not a superbike but a cruiser and I commute 2 km to/from work. Anyway, they said it is not covered under warranty and I had to pay 50,000 yen ($450) to replace. Any advice...was I taken? Is it normal for rotors to warp or is it poor rotor quality?

Warped brake rotors are not normal. Maybe there was some drag on your brakes because of some misalignment? Haven't heard of too many cases of warped rotors on the newer Harleys. Why did you pay them to replace them when you could have done the job yourself for lots less? But a manual and dig in. Braking too hard isn't the reason either, unless you are dragging the brakes for miles on end.
