warped

  1. Africa Twin
    Hi, failed the MOT yesterday :cry: due to uneven braking at the front. I can feel that the braking is uneven (as you apply slight pressure to come to a stop it feels like the disc is warped) but didn't really feel it was an issue. The MOT man did... So...what to do? I removed both discs and...

    Dammit! Failed :( Thankfully only failed on a warped rear brake disc rotor, so that's only going to set me back £70. It may be slightly more if the fixing bolts are seized, but I'll see about that next week. Seeing as my Transalp has done 43,000 miles on the one rotor, and I know I drag...

    Hi My bike has been standing unused for about a year. I have just dusted it off and was checking it over prior to the MOT and there is a quite loud knocking coming from the front disc/brakes. I am sure its the brakes as if I remove the caliper and spin the wheel it goes completely. Also if I...

    One of my front discs is warped as a result of the pad spring being incorrectly fitted in the caliper prior to my ownership and causing the brake to bind. Does anyone know whether all 650 front discs are the same, or whether they are different for later (2004 onwards) bikes? Some sources sell...

    The disc brake on my 650 was warped. After having the wheel in and out several times and trying different measurements it was the disc mounting pads on the hub that were out alignment. Adding shims under two of the pads on the right disc bought them back into line. Has any body else had this...

    Hi! I have just rebuild the front brake caliper on my 96 TA.......put it back on, hooked up brake line and bleed the lines........and then after some testing and compressing the dreaded drop under the caliper!! :( One of the pistons must have warped a seal when I pushed them in. :( My question...

    I was out for a run couple days ago, bit of motorway, B roads and some off road. I noticed on approach to junctions as i slowed to a stop the front brake seemed to grab and release as the from wheel turned. At speed to was not noticeable at all. there was no vibration, the pressure on the brake...

    Hi, looking for a front wheel / complete rim for an XL 650 2001 (I assume any XL 650 wheel will fit), as I think mine is warped. Can't see any on fleabay. Cheers, Ash.

    Laugh out loud moment today - full page Halvarssons advert in November's Bike magazine (page 61). The reason being the placement of the ad in the middle of a 9 page blather about new Harley and Indian models. But, you'd have to see it to appreciate my warped sense of humour. Hint - it...

    Can anybody tell me why these have bent like this sorry pics are poor quality they are off my RD07. I have just put new discs on and they seem to work okay and there is no movement on the disc or caliper. The picture is the discs one on top of each other and there should be no gap at all. Thanks

    Hi All I have been having some issues with my RD04 randomly cutting out, all electrics just dying and then coming back on. Went away and then came back again. I think i have found the cause as the fuse box which had a home-made fuse inserted as the contacts for one of the fuses is broken- but...
  15. Varadero
    Hi Folks, I have been a lurker for a while. I have a 2001 XL1000 V2 Varadero, she's a good old workhorse. I picked her up at the end of summer to get me to and from a new job. The mileage over the first few months was always around 220-230 mile per tank. Then suddenly over the last 2 fill ups...

    Hi, I recently purchased a VA-8 *18 months old, but it dips and pulses under front brake, Can anyone confirm if there is a known issue with the 07 on deros with warpping front discs and "should" my warranty still cover it? PiemaN101

    My TA600 feels like the front disc is mildly warped, but when I took the disc off and offered it up to a flat surface, it looked perfectly straight. However, that pulsing in the lever under braking is unmistakeable. However, I remember noticing that one spoke has a kink in it, right at the...

    Just had my GS serviced, they confirmed that the front discs are a little warped and that is not going to get any better. Checking back through the service history (Previously owned by a guy who keep everything and I mean everything) I found out that this will be the 3rd set of front discs it...
