Could this problem be caused by improper bedding? I did follow the manufactures instructions, but maybe I should have waited a little longer before braking hard.

The brakes never pulsed prior to the rotor/pad change, and I highly doubt the rotor is warped.

I've double checked the installation and I don't see anything wrong. When turning the rotor without the wheel installed there is definitely a "sticky" area during the rotation. Visually I don't see anything on the rotor....in fact I can still see the machining marks. Without the pads in, the rotor spins freely.

Can the rotor be cleaned? Steel wool, sandpaper, etc??
