The shimmy on the rotors can also be caused by sticky spots on the rotor. If you have been using the brakes heavilly and then stop the bonding glue in the pads can soak into the surface of the disk creating a sticky spot. A wipe over with emery cloth and a de greasing agent (vinegar solution) can solve the problem. With vented rotors warping is unlikely unless you have been towing or driving on a track or mountain pass or the caliper is seized.
