Angry Brake Rotor Finish Coming off

Not sure if this is normal or not But over the past few weeks I have noticed the finish on the rear brake rotor has been peeling and after riding today its definitely getting worse. I don't do any kind of unusual braking and they are bone stock brakes. almost seems like they are getting too hot as the inside seems a bit discolored. From what I can tell the brake aren't sticking or anything and I cant smell them. It has less than 5000 miles on it and now I'm worried about rust. Would this be a warranty issue or does this seems normal?

Looks more like the rotor has been scored by the pads. How do the pads look? If they are glazed or gritty, lay some sandpaper on a flat surface and sand the pads until the surface is clean. If they are worn, replace them.

Pads seem to be fine and look ok, I don't understand why they are doing this though that's whats making me think warranty. its not like i drive around doing 200 mph lol. I planned on eventually doing EBC pads anyway but i don't want a jacked up rotor.

Your's looks great. My rear has big ole' pits in it. Oddly, my fronts are fresh and clean. I suspect mine were due to riding in the winter with the salty roads. If you didn't do that then perhaps the outfit plating their rear rotors just sucks.

You don't think it will rust though? Yes my fronts look brand new, i mean i use them in tandem normally but the front just has no stopping power alone.

I agree and no I'm not worried about it. As long as the brakes still work properly, I'm not gonna get too uptight over it. When they stop working properly, I'll buy another rotor.

Based on your picture, I wouldn't get too distressed yet.

I replaced my pads with EBC HH long before the originals were even half worn. Big improvement all around. Why wait?

I was going to wait and do the rotors and pads eventually. EBC makes great rotors also.
