I think I was once one who said that I don't have any problem with the EBC rotor. Then after about 4-5000 miles I pulled it off and low and behold, I had the referenced rub marks. I could not feel them when under way nor hear them but the proof was looking me in the face.
I took the dremel and took a bit more off at each rub point and called it a day.
Is it a "problem"? In the true sense of the word yes, it is indeed a fitment problem. Since you cant see, hear, or feel it, I made a personal decision that it is so superior to OEM rotor and pads it was well worth it to just take a bit more off the rub marks to be sure and run it.
Only in one slight area was the wheel rubbed past the primer, until me and Mr Dremel got done
Bunch of opinions on this topic and some have simply just added a second spacer.
Don't be put off, but be informed and use the search function.

I placed the ring on the new disk before it shrunk back to size and replaced the three screws with some blue locktite. No problems. Other than taking my time with the heat gun to heat the ring, it went pretty quick.
Believe me, they know the correct p/n if you tell them what bike it's for. The outer ring does not contain the friction surface. The friction surface is on the pads that you need to order also. Again, they will know what pads to toss in the box.
Just do it. It makes a world of difference.
