Hey im having a problem with my rear break rotor , i threw brand new pads in one of my bikes yesterday , i went riding at a track today and at the end of the day i noticed there was a tiny bit of the break pad left , keep in mind i wasnt hitting my breaks enough for it to wear out that fast , i looked into it more and theres a tiny warp in the motor , barely even noticable , everything that holds the break pads slides and works perfectly , could a tiny warp be causing the break pads to wear this fast???

Id say your rotor needs replaced

I'd bet your caliper pins need to be greased. If they get dry/sticky the caliper will not float freely as it is supposed to. The pads will drag against the rotor and cause excessive heat and wear. Caliper may also need to be rebuilt. If the piston does not return into the caliper when you release the brake it will cause the same symptoms.
