Most motorcycle problems are caused by the nut that connects the handlebars to the saddle.

Kyoto Disc

Post by Invisible_Man on Sun 18 Oct 2015, 7:44 pm

Hi,
CB got an advisory on the front disc been slightly distorted......at slow speeds the lever pulses slightly.

Has anyone tried the Kyoto Wavy disc as seen on wemotos website? £62...also my disc lock fits it!

I dont like skimping on braking components but at the same time i dont want to throw money away if i dont have to.

Cheers,

Honda disc it is then Lol

Last night I took the original disc off and tried a disc I got with the bike. New disc was even more warped than the original. On refitting the original, locktiting and torquing the pulsing brake lever has stopped.

TBH if it is only an advisory then (if it wasn't annoying me) then I wouldn't change the disc until it had worn out.

Glad to hear that it has gone away after you took it all apart and put it back together again!  This kind of thing sometimes isn't helped by the corrosion that happens between the wheel and the disc, especially if it isn't removed when fitting a new disc (had a similar problem on the rear of mine).
