Rear Rotor Rattle-does yours ?

I was cleaning my chain last night and would hear a little click clack when spinning the rear wheel around by hand. Today I was ambitious and looked into it further. My rear rotor is a super floater , never had one that was loose enough to "float" that freely. I know I can dab a little silicone on the hardware and that should cure it and still allow it to float. But wondered if thats normal ? The hardware looks pretty much common stock from what a lot of my bikes in the past have had, but never heard my rotor clanking- does yours ?

Mine does it too.
The first time I heard it I was moving, unerved me a bit.

yeah, it's ok.
I broke the stock rear disc on my 950 (non floater) because i use a lot of rear brake (i'm an enduro rider).
The rotor on my is a pita, but i've grown to just tolerate the sound. lol
Anyway, there is nothing wrong! you should hear my stock front rotor on my KLX450 lol
