749 Brake Judder/Loud Noise

Help Please..


On way home earlier, on pulling my front brake, I'm getting a serious vibration & noise...

Any ideas what it could



I ride a 03 749bp 13k miles.. (I've owned since Jan 2012) so not added to many miles yet...

Thanks in advance

Warped disc?
Glazed pads?
Steering head bearings?

It's more likely to be brake dust build up in your brake calipers stopping the pistons from moving freely.
If you haven't already, get the calipers off and give them a damn good clean with an old toothbrush and some brake cleaner to get rid of all the crud.

For glazing, check your pads - if there's a rainbow sheen on them then they may be "glazed", but you can put a sheet of fine sand paper on a piece of glass (to ensure it's flat) and lightly take the sheen off. They'll be good as new.

As always, work gets in the way of everything....

Took Front brakes off yesterday & as per your suggestion the 2 pistons RH side & 1 Piston on LH side (as you sit on the bike) had seized.... Took alot of cleaning to bring them back to life.


went for a short ride today & all appears to be fine...

Finger crossed it does the job.

Thanks for the heads up

Regards
JA
