My brake judder has returned.  :005:  :230:

It's going in for it's 10k service next week so I have asked them to look at it again.

I'm a bit concerned though as last time the technician said he couldn't feel it, baring in mind I was waiting in the show room while he road tested it, he was only gone for about 15 mins. I was made to feel as though they were doing me a favour by replacing the brakes. So we will see.  :084:

Yeah, as long as your warranty runs, they say 'I don't feel it'.
And as soon as you warranty expires, it becomes 'Oh your disks must be replaced!' (don't ask how I know).

I'm tired of always having to fight for just having the standard contract fulfilled...

I ride all year round - and with all my Triumphs I've owned I find you need to fully strip the brakes on an annual basis.Clean everything spotlessly. The rear underslung caliper on my 1050 was so bad that I had  a spare caliper - just unbolted and swapped it over to save time being off road !! The 1200 is better but still needs a good clean at least once a year. Got nearly 30k on my discs and they are still in good condition. Use compressed air to dry things out fter you wash it - helps a lot I find in keeping corrossion at bay :002:

I do exactly the same.  :028:

l also plaster ACF50 all over every time I wash it from probably the end of this month until April I would guess.
