Mounting surfaces for the discs must be spotless...judder on new discs is usually due to a small amount of dirt on these surfaces when fitting.

SOURCE: front brake lever spongy,not operating brake

Gravity bleed front brake. no lever pumping. Looden cap on master cylinder, front wheen straight ahead, open bleeder and watch for air being expelled. When only fluid is coming out, close bleeder. Expect the front pads totake a few miles to seat, They will improve as they wear in. Good Luck / be safe.

2008 Yamaha Royal Star tourdeluxe : which brake pads are the best (metal, kevlar, etc)

Original pads are the best. I fitted non originals to the rear of my SV and the disc has worn a fair bit. The front discs show no wear and are on their 2nd set of original pads. Originals are pricey but the discs seem to wear less.

My vw bora has a severe front brake judder and abs activates for no reason at slow speed, brake pads and discs are only 4 months old


Your discs when fitted had a small runout problem, this will after 2 to 5000 miles develope into DTV Disc thickness variation. To cure this inexpensively go to or
and get your discs machined on the vehicle which will eliminate your runout problem solving the juddering without replacing the discs etc.

Cause of severe motorcycle brake judder

It could be 1 of 2 thing.The discs are out of round or the pads have a bad contaminate on them.If its bad stuff on the pads it would give a stop/slip/stop etc feeling to the .a shudder.If the disc is out of true,that means its not running in a dead straight line but has a slight offset, it will cause pulses or shudders in the brake.I just thought,,check the caliper mounts are not loose.Look at the disc,it should be the same color all the way around.Diff colors indicates a hot spot or warp.Jack up the front of the bike.Spin the wheel and put a pointer on the disc.It should not be out of true except for a very very small amount.It needs this to clear the pads from the disc so the dont rub all the time and get hot.Go from here,Hope this helps

Suzuki Grand Vitara 1999:

Going by your description I think it could be something different, I would have the brake master cylinder checked, if you are suffering brake failure and shuddering it sounds like your callipers arent getting equal pressure when you apply the brakes. Or a freat lack of pressure to suffer brake failure. I hope this helps.

Hi, I've got severe juddering when using the front brake. I've had the head race bearings checked and they appear ok. Any suggestions as to the cause?

Possibly one of the following:
  • damaged brake disc(s)
  • damaged brake pad(s)
  • loose or damaged brake calliper(s)
  • grit between the disc & pad
If you have recently changed the brake pads, it may be that the new friction material of the pad is not interacting well with the brake disc. Cheap brake discs are made out of all sorts of ****, so you’re always better off spending a little extra on quality stoppers.

If you experience ANY problems under braking on any motorcycle, it's best you let a professional look at it. The consequences otherwise can be very serious indeed. Remember, stopping the bike safely is the MOST important part of riding a bike.

Did you get the rotors machined to specs or just change the pads.If not machined suggest you get them checked to see wether they should have been.This affects ABS equipped vehicles more severely
