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

Brake disc out of true

Post by theblackorder on Mon 20 Aug 2018, 9:48 am

Is it possible to straighten brake disc and has anyone done that. I'm getting mild front end chatter during braking. Also if I am to replace the front disc can you suggest aftermarket one or the oem is best.

Place a pointer near to the disc. Spin the front wheel and check that the gap changes, if it does the disc is warped, best to change it I've never heard of anyone straightening one, it might be dangerous to do it even if it is possible.
If the disc is not warped check your steering head bearings, if they're loose they'll judder under braking.
