While cleaning my chain yesterday I noticed a funny noise when spinning the tire. Turns out the brake is hitting the rotor at one point in the turn. Is this an alignment issue or a rotor issue? Has anyone had a rotor warp?

Same here, it was noiced when the bike was in for its MOT last week, not noticible on the road but the machine picked it up. The guy who did the MOT reckons it was either a warped disc due to getting too hot or that sintered pads could have eaten into the disc if it had been put away wet and left a while.
Bikes still ridable:D

The allowable runout is 0.3 mm. Did you get your bike at Gulf Coast? I like the dealeship and the people but don't have any experience with getting warranty work done there. Hopefully they would take care of you.

Hi Blesk,

Sounds like the classic symptoms of a warped disc.

Triumph will change it under warranty, as it's a common problem.

Let us know how you get on :)
