Gen 3 Brake Judder
« on: June 08, 2018, 12:26:40 AM »
My Gen 3 with 5000 miles on at 3 months old has high spots on the front discs causing brake judder which as you can imagine is a little concerning. Sent photos to the dealer and have to take it in next week for them to have a look.  :012:

Fingers crossed they will be replaced under warranty.  :084:

Anyone else had brake issues on their Gen3?

Mine is in for its first service (1,000 km). Nothing wrong with this excellent package of braking power.

I had a sad story with my '08 Tiger 1050. Front disks warped, replaced under warranty THREE times. That's when Triumph realized it couldn't be a bad batch of rotors. So they replaced the whole front rim (under warranty) and everything went fine for the remaining 50,000 km I rode with it.

I've done just over 5k miles now and no brake judder. Only thing I've noticed is my near side rear brake pad is wearing twice as fast as the other. I'm going to take it to the dealer tomorrow as it looks like my piston is sticking.

Wow! Stuck piston at 5k miles?!
Do you commute in mud or something?

I've noticed it's been wearing twice as fast since I got the bike, but never got round to doing anything about it. I got the bike at the beginning of Feb and it was really wet that month, remember the bike getting super dirty every time it rained getting covered in salt from the roads. Tried to rinse it off when I got home but I didn't pay any special attention to the rear caliper.

Salt and dirt has probably jammed it up, the pistons do look pretty dirty and there was a lot of fine sand in the grit this year. The dealer offered to service it, for a price of course, so I bought the pads and am going to do it myself this weekend.

Well happy days, my pads and discs have been replaced under warranty.   :046:

Lets hope these discs last longer than 5000 miles.  :084:
