Well I hope that fixes your problem for good.

I too had the same problem that you were describing and in fact still do. I had my disks/rotors (which aren't made by Brembo by the way, only the caliper and pad are Brembo) swapped last year which also fixed my problem initially.

However (and I hope this doesn't happen to you) the vibration came back 2 weeks later. The dealer looked at my disks and then sent pictures to triumph and noted the disks were pitted. They said that this pitting was causing my judder but refused to do anything about it, despite it happening 2 weeks after they were new.

I have found that over drier periods (which doesn't happen very often in the UK), and if I break hard and often the problem goes away, but it always comes back when its wet again.

So basically I think that under my normal ridding (I commute on my bike, so don't ride it hard as much as I would like) the disk being made out of cheap material, corrode faster than I wear them. But if you can wear them faster than they corrode you wont see the problem.

Hope that helps - I do feel your pain

Wow, that doesn't sound very encouraging. Weather being as it is, I probably wont get much riding done more this year. Fingers crossed that the problem is gone, if it comes back I guess the next course of action would be to change the rotors to some more high quality stuff. Probably wont find out till next summer though. I did some hard riding (couple of trackdays) and one pretty long trip (3500km+) and almost daily riding besides that, one would think that it would keep the corrosion away. But I guess we'll see.

Thanks for sharing

Ugh, so almost a year after having my rotors changed under warranty (which did solve the issue) the problem is back. wth. The warranty period is now over so I guess i'll be forking out some cash this time around.

Any tips on some better quality rotors, brembo?
