Any of you guys notice that the rear rotor is tightly mounted to the hub and it's loose , move from left to right on the round studs on the rotor.

Hi, Yep have been there and seen that. Mine got loose one day and stayed that way now for quite a while. Mine moves about an 1/8" or so but has not gotton worse. There was some talk that this is a floating rotor and is normal but some rotors sound like they are ready to fall apart. JOHN

I really don't think thats right. I just went out and re-checked mine and it does not move. zero, zip, nada. So either your rotor should not move or mine is locked up........

I'm betting that it's not supposed to move.

floating rotors should move some, that's the whole point of why they float. they should not be falling off loose though.

The M109 uses semi-floating rotors. They should move a bit under pressure but not that easily. If they are real loose, they are not riveted correctly and the dealer needs to replace the rotors.
