    I have a 2014 TTSE I have pulsing brakes but only seems to be when using the back brake alone in slow-moving traffic. Have inspected the discs and there seems to be no noticeable warping of them. Have changed the pads and cleaned the pistons up but no difference. Anyone know how to combat this? :440:

    My brake issues were only when using the front brake, the rear brake (and hence the lower set of pads on the right disc) were not causing the issue.  I'm not really sure what is causing it but I bit the bullet...all 450 worth just for the Brembo discs and will give these a go.  So far I've only done around 100 miles on them and made sure I did a very good bedding in process and at the moment I have to say the brakes are superb.  Will just have to see from now on if they go the same way as the EBC's, fingers crossed they don't because if they do I'm probably selling the bike.

    So, I bought my 2016 Trophy Se 3 years ago with 3,500 miles on it. The brake pulsating bugged me but I lived with it. I read different reasons on what could be causing it but didn`t do anything. Put new front tire on at about 9,000 and have about 15,000 on it now. It has not pulsated once since the new tires. The original front tire was cupped when I got the bike. New front tire hasn`t cupped yet. Old tire was a Perelli, new tire is a Michellin Pilot.

    I started getting the pulse on my 2015 SE a few months after I bought it used with 8k miles.  I ended up buying some used rotors on Ebay from a 2010 Sprint (I believe).  So far several thousand miles with no pulsing.

    I hope I'm not too late to add to this. I have had pulsing front brakes before and a post I read some time ago suggested cleaning the front brake disc floating pins (I'm not sure what they are called). The round bits that are between the outside and inside of the disc. Apparently this is known as a semi floating disc and as such the round pins should spin fairly freely. I used a bolt with washers that passed through the pins, sprayed with some carburettor cleaner and then tightened the bolt and spun the pins to get them free. I now don't have pulsing brakes but when it starts I know its time to clean them again. I know this won't cure warped discs or cupped tyres both of which I have had also but its an easy fix to try before replacing expensive parts.
