Should be just 1 on the left side.

There shouldn't be a caliper mount on the right hand fork slider tube.

I ave a low growling noice and brake pedal pulses

As a general rule, if the wheel shakes when you apply the brakes, the front disk rotors are warped. If the brake pedal pulses when you apply brakes, the rear brake rotors are warped. So you most likely have warped rear brake rotors. The noise may be that the wear indicators on the brake pads are touching the disks, indicating that you need new brake pads. Given both of these, I suggest a trip to the local brake repair centre is needed.

Front end pulling to left

Your RIGHT side brake disk caliper is probably siezed so all braking power is going to the left causing the pull.
Wheel off, disk pads out, pump out the pistons in the caliper JUST A LITTLE. Clean with a copper brush and brake fluid until polished (Careful not to catch the rubber dust seals). Push pistons back in. Re-fit pads and wheel.

Other thoughts on this. Check for a lip on the disk caused by wear as well.

That's the super cheap, pay nothing for parts option. You should consider:
Changing both sets of brake pads
If the disks are worn, changing the disks too (you may be able to grind a lip off if you have the nerve).
If the caliper still sticks, new pistons or piston and caliper

Brakes have a pulsing feel when youy apply them

U have warped disk brake rotors, if your car four wheel disk then all four should be machined true again to stop the problem, if u have just front disk brakes then have the front disk rotors machined true again by a brake shop

WEAK FRONT BRAKE - new liquid, new brakepads; no

if you replaced the pads and not the disk/disks, the pads will need some time to wear in to the surface shape of the disk. also if the disk is glazed at all, they'll be really weak.

Did you have the brake disks resurfaced or new replacement?

If re-surfaced disks may be warped.

Immediate inspection as vehicle may not be safe to operate.

Hope this tip helps.

There is a slight, but noticable brake pedal pulsing when in reverse, unless the pedal is pushed hard. THe rear rotors & pads have been replaced but has not solved the problem. Only happens in reverse...

its the disk pads grabing the disk as there is still disk run out some were or there very loos in there holders,,,try testing for any "disk run out" on the front disks its more of a problem if its happening when its going forwards
