Re: Front brake shudder !!

Gerry, you didn't say whether you bled the brake lines or not - air behind a piston can also give you judder? Regards, Russ Nope, just put new pads in , didn't need any bleeding , were 100 % with the "excessive" worn pads with half a mm wear. The shudder has come along gradually , not jus...

Re: Front brake shudder !!

I'm ordering the more expensive pads, I've always liked Goldfren , ever since I was sponsored by them when I raced .

Will look up compatible Goldfren , and try a set .


Thanks for the replies .

Re: do not want to piss on anyone`s parade, ..but..

I personally think PCP has absolutely trashed UK second hand market as far as selling !!! Good as a buyer . My second R1100 S , I couldn't get decent money for in UK , best offer was £1400 ..... I sold it in Spain for slightly more than I paid Al for it, and had 53 enquiries , with second one to loo...

In July I took my red N9 JOB for the Spanish ITV , to get it transferred to Spanish plates . I drew a clown that day , had no idea about a bike. Failed for excessive wear on brake pads !!!!! :shock: I went home , took front pads out !!! 3,5 mm ?? Check the new Brembo pads I ordered from Motor Works ...

Its possible fuse popped when doing the battery . A stupid que...

I love these beautiful Yamaha 2 strokes !!! Enjoy yours !!! I won Hill climb champs on mine in South Africa in 1985.

Re: TT, are the riders gladiators or canon fodder?

125cc Yamaha AS 3.jpg I think it's a case of your perception. Some of us wanted to race bikes from very early , in my case by 8 years old its all I ever wanted to do. I was lucky , I raced bikes pretty much from 1975 up until 2015 when I just couldn't take the knocks any more . I've had lots of hea...

Re: R1100s top end rattle

Jeff Thanks for the reply. From what I can find - 1-cam chain tensioner is an issue, but that's noise is worst when cold and improves when warm. 2-The 2 part push rods make more noise when warm, so that will be my first plan of attack - change them for the later one piece ones. 3-My bike has 49,000...
