Rotor Straightening

I mounted a new spare front wheel on my GSXR only to find one rotor has a .050" bump for about a 1/2 revolution. I know a lot people say rotor straightening is a waste of time but this is a zero mile rotor. Its not warped from heat.

Any suggestions on a fix? Should I just grab the thing and start yanking (open season on this comment)?

Bent in towards the hub?

If so I use a 2 * 4 to slowly bend back in place, using the outer edge of wheel as leverage. For me it has worked every-time.

I'm assuming towards the hub. Not sure how totell though. I will give the 2x4 a shot.
