Question about 2005 Ducati 749 Dark
Just got back from a great day's riding down in Dorset. The new 749 is working a treat albeit a little quiet-need to get that exhaust sorted. One issue I've had though, is under fairly hard breaking the front really judders. Having not experienced this on my 748, it was a shock. This can't be standard. Has anyone suffered this. Any ideas on rectifying it. New pads? New Discs? Its on 7000 miles and was serviced at 6K. Please help. Thanks once again in advance.
Plenty of tales about warped discs to go with that one, but it seems that it can be fouled-up disc mounting bobbins - the dust and crud get in and stop them from "floating". try a small bolt thru the bobbin with a nut to lock it, then spin it while spraying with brake cleaner (or soapy water) and you'll free the bobbins off thus restoring the flex and float.....worked for me. Quite a bit of dust and muck come out....try grasping the disc and see if it does actually float on the bobbins before and after
