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.

I have to take my hat off to the dealer, not only did they experience the judder they renewed the pads, discs and front wheel to to cure it. I didn't really get an explanation as to why the wheel was changed but I'm not bothered because its all ok at the moment.    :047:

Lets hope these last long than 4000 miles though, the bikes not even seen a winter yet.  :114:

Exactly what's happened on my '08 Tiger 1050.
After having replaced the disks twice (or thrice, I don't remember) under warranty, they resorted to changing the front wheel. This was apparently a case of unleveled disk mounting points on the rim, which would cause every disk to warp sooner or later.
Once the front wheel was replaced, I never had warped front disks again.

I'm therefore confident in your problem being permanently solved now.

Cheers Nik, that explanation makes sense.  :821:

Yep that makes sense - hopefully al sorted. Just to prove some of Triumphs quality - a mate has a Kawasaki SX1000 (think thats what it is called) it was brand new and within 6 months most of the fastners are rusting, corroded etc. My bike is so much better and I've done loads more miles and years on it  :002:

Coming up 10k miles on mine, so far so good.  However, on a recent ride up to Colorado both the front and rear seemed like they were a little spongy so did the bungee cord wrapped around the lever overnight-trick and all seems well now.

Never heard about this one!
And what is it supposed to do?
