I had a RD 400 that came with un drilled discs. I paid to have them drilled at a machine shop. I never heard any difference.
Sorry KM, drilled/slotted rotors do make a noise, usually a clicking sound which does fade after rotor is worn in. If you google " drilled rotor noise " you will find many concerns about the noise. The reason your rotors that you had drilled didn't make noise is because they do not have dimples. Manufactured slotted or drilled rotors have dimples which create the noise.
