There is actually a tool for straightening disc,
I just use a small cresent wrench to straighten my discs

There is a good video out by park tool on how to straighten discs and many other videos by others.

Basically ya straighten the disc while it's on the bike.
First number the spokes of the disc so you can keep track of where it's bent
Then using the tool or a wrench ya bend the disc in or out where it's bent until you get it straight
It's easier than it sounds with a little common sense of which way and where to bend the disc
i always hated truing up a rim. this sounds like its just as much fun. when truing rims at school and it just wasnt working id say f*** it and take a break. as i went past the teacher i would say if someone comes to my shop and wants a rim trued theyll be leaving with a mag....lmoa..if straightening a disc is as much trouble as im reading then it seems to me its worth just replacing it rather than spending all that time that could be put to better use....like a honey-do list....lmao..when it comes to brakes id rather make sure i can stop without any problems. i gave up on the flinstone method when i was a teenager....lol

It's really not that hard just common sense of which way to bend the rotor in or out.
But I do have a couple replacement rotors hanging on the wall just in case a rotor is beyond straightening

I got the mags but before they came with the disc brakes. Just building now with the wildcat an Jackshaft kit. I bought the brakes separate and not realizing I got 203 instead of 160s. Honestly with the Jackshaft I think the bigger rotor will fit on the rear for sure

You need to check the "reach" or size of the disc caliper. They come in different sizes for different size rotors Some are marked with the size rotor on them. The ones that I got From BS Berry were marked but I did not realize it and bought the wrong size rotors.
