Re: Front Brake Judder

Replacement callipers and discs has sorted the issue. Jammed piston in the calliper was causing the discs to heat up and warp. Thanks to Petefor the clamping tip which helped to identify the side.

Re: Decrepit tyres

There is a general rule that tyres should be replaced after 6 years from manufacture. Apparently something to do with the chemical compound. Date of manufacture is on the sidewall, four numbers normally preceded by DOT first two numbers are the week and second two are year e.g DOT1513 is 15th week o...

Re: Front Brake Judder

Does anyone know if the ABS sensor ring has washers behind, in front or not at all on the 12S. I can't seem to find details on the microfiche

Re: Front Brake Judder

I have had the discs checked for runout and have tried other discs so have gone for the next option although had I tried your clamping suggestion first I would have gone for discs next. Thanks for the help anyway, I'll post if I am successful with the calliper.

Re: Front Brake Judder

Great idea Pete, tried the g clamp and it showed that the left hand calliper/disc is the issue. With that side clamped, braking was fine, albeit a bit reduced as a single disc. Clamped the other side and judder was evident. Replacement calliper arrives tomorrow from Motorworks.

Re: Front Brake Judder

Thanks Pete, that is my next move then to see if I can at least identify the dodgy side.

Re: Front Brake Judder

Thanks for the suggestions chaps, I have changed the discs to no avail, Armstrong and Brembo. I have ordered replacement callipers from Motorworks as mine are definitely sticking on the inside pistons with both callipers for some reason. I'll try changing them first. I have braided lines on mine so ...

Re: Front Brake Judder

nothing of note Dave, had Mike Overy have a quick look and test ride and he thought it was wheel related. I'm now hoping its a sticking calliper

Re: Front Brake Judder

Well, after a new wheel, new seals and bearings and new Brembo pads, the judder remains! Discs within permissible run out, wheel straight and true. Next will need to be the callipers. Seem a bit sticky on the inside pistons and the ceramic inserts are cracked although mechanic said that cracked inse...
