Mine has always made the same noise as you describe. I have changed pads and checked all the bolts. I put it down to the EBC floating disk

Hi
I believe it's the rotor as well as mine has a fair bit of movement now after 23500 kms .
What's the wear limit as far as movement is concerned, I wonder
Before it could cause a problem?

Mine has side to side movement, but thats why they call it a floating disc. Manual only calls for thickness and runout checks. Probably nothing to be concerned about, at least after some basic checks to make sure nothings loose. Now its beer oclock, hot work spooning tyres on in 35deg c

Hi
Mine has up and down movement which means the friction part can go out of round.
I've ordered a new oem disc from bikebandit, I fit that when it arrives and see how it goes
