Warped Rotors A Second Time?
« on: May 24, 2015, 05:10:48 pm »
I'm going to have to replace my front rotors at my own expense since the bike is out of warranty.  I am leery of using Triumph's rotors, but it doesn't look like EBC makes a replacement.  Anyone who have their's replaced have them warp again?

Last September I replaced the rotors on my Trophy with EBC rotors and new brake pads. I posted the information to this thread and included photos in a subsequent message.

I'm beginning to wonder if it's the Bobbins getting gummed-up that is causing this problem....

I (sort of) thought so when I discovered that my '12 SE with 8.5K Miles was reported as having Warped Discs by the Triumph Tech' who Test rode it after fitting New Tyres...  The Front Discs did get replaced under Warranty on the 10 K Service

Someone did Post a Link to a Vid from Delboy's Garage about "Cleaning the Bobbins" recently.

I for one am certainly "going to give it a go" this time around, when applicable.
Currently the discs are still "Floating"..

Since replacing the front rotors, I've put another 10K miles on the bike and, although that hasn't been far enough to be totally certain, I have no further complaints about the front brakes.

Thanks. For me the 10000 miles mark seems to be critical ... for the second time, although I do not believe that it is mileage per se that is the culprit but rather a design weakness making the rotor overheat too easily when braking. One thing I can say is that after the rotor has become warped, fiddling with the 'bobbins' does nothing.
