rear brake disc advice

hi guys, the rear brake disc on my '08 daytona has warped so I need to get a new one. Just wondering if anyone recommends any particular disc or should I stick to the OEM?
I have heard the wave discs resist warping so am leaning toward them...
Thanks for your help in advance.

Honestly I'd go for whatever you can find a deal on. I personally feel most riders would not reap the benefit of an aftermarket rear rotor, for the price difference. Yes they look cool, but its still just your rear brake, not a ton of stopping power any way you look at it. But thats just me.

If you can rely on your ability, you don't have to worry about reliability.

Heck for a 145.00 bucks you can pick up a lightweight ABM rear rotor. Thats pretty cheap. No the stopping power is not a big deal but you will get the bonus of lower rotational mass. That's worth the few extra bucks.
