With a full floating rotor, the “rotor” is made from two pieces, an inner carrier and the outer actual rotor, which is allowed to “float” on the rivets which attach it to the carrier. Therefore it is centered as it expands due to heat. It is standard (and approved by the DOT) on almost all sport production motorcycles in the USA today – and, of course, non-production racing motorcycles too.
