Gave in and had New discs fitted.  The judder caused a seal to give way on the forks which cost me so I just couldn't ignore it any more.

The Judder was not warped discs but what I can only describe a ballooning (the disc expands in either a spot or spots) which there is not fix for.  Once the metal has gone this way thats the end.  Another result of the being stood 2yrs with the pads seized on.

Brake Fluid has gone a horrible colour now so that will be changed tonight or tomorrow morning ready for riding Saturday, shall use a tank braking them in.

So here they are with New SBS Sintered Pads as well - Only done 11miles.

It's the colouring coming off so unless send them off to be refurbished you can't do anything about it. A lot of owners would say don't waste your money, go get a set of 4 Post Nissins of eBay as they are better braking and the pots don't have a habit of sticking.

There's a couple of bikes Like the triumph that they are fitted to and a straight swap.

They really do bite already so looking forward to getting 100miles done tomorrow.

An upgrade. They look more meaty that the originals. Only done 30miles and the bite is really good.
