I've replaced the calipers on my AT as the front brakes didn't work but now they are binding and it bounces when slowing down on front brakes so seems the discs are warped.

Any idea where to get some reasonably priced front discs from or does anyone have a straight second hand set for sale?

Best place to get them from is dave silver spares- or try wemoto too..

Youll be looking at around £75.00 each though...

Before you spend money, take off one disk, rotate 90 degrees and re-install. This seems to have helped often.

If it does not help, try surface grinding, if the remaining thickness of the discs allows. Should not be costing more than 30 quid / disc. (Note: The grinding as it is done for car brake disks does not work for motorcyle discs; you´ll need to look for someone specializing in motorcycle disks).

(Disclaimer: Work on brakes requires expert qualification. Note that repair manual requires use of new disc bolts.)
Cheers
