Quick question,
If I buy new rotors and bearings, is it necessary to change the races in the new rotor or do they not come with races installed?

If you don't have time to do it right will you have time to do it over?
I never have, I clean and inspect the bearings, if they look good I repack them and install them in the new rotors with new seals.

99.99% of new rotors will have races installed, but they probably don't have inner seal, so you probably want to pick that up too.

So, as @19Walt93 says, you will want to check your existing bearing, and if OK, clean, repack and reinstall. Install the seal (remember to install the inner bearing, before the seal).
