Slight stuttering/vibrartions when breaking. 2011 speedy
Looking for some input from you guys with newer speedy's 2011+. I have a 2011 with, from my point of view, some issues with the front breaks. I began notice a slight stuttering coming from the front end when breaking hard, my first thought was that as some other users have reported, warped rotors/discs. The stuttering became worse during a trackday as the discs heated up.
Took the bike to the dealership to have it checked out and to get my cracked lenses changed. According to the mechanic, they have measured the discs (which are straight according to the mechanic) and changed the pads. While the stuttering have gotten better it is still there.
Now, the response I got from the mechanic was that the vibrations that they could feel after they changed the pads was normal, and they couldnt really do more about it.
The strange things is that, before the pads were changed the stuttering could be felt throughout breaking, getting worse as more pressure was applied to the breaks, now after the pad change the stuttering is there initially when breaking but gets less noticeable as more pressure is applied.
I'm interested to hear your experience with the speedy front breaks, some slight stuttering normal? I'm coming from a Yamaha FZ1-N and maybe I've been lucky but that thing was smooth as silk during breaking.
Thanks for any input
