    First MOT?

    My Trophy was one of the Pre-launch machines so it was due for MOT on 20th July - I took it today

    It passed :028:  BUT with an advisory  :173:- Front Brake uneven at low speed
    I had the discs etc replaced for this problem last year under warranty

    Staffs Triumph believe that as the parts are warrantied for 2 years I should get the job done again under warranty. All well and good but it does make me wonder about the design/discs/quality control for this element. Everything else is fine so why this problem again??? :027:
    Now got Black TTSE
    Used to have Pre-Launch Trophy - lowest recorded Trophy VIN
    Why Threeup? Me, SWMBO and her bear (Fredbear)

    I had the same issue on a BMW RT and it was not warped discs but "material transfer" from OEM pads.   Changed pads and cleaned disc with brake cleaner and plastic "wire" brush mounted on a drill.  Problem solved.
    At slow speeds it really grabbed, made me look like it was my first time riding a bike.
    Good luck.

    I changed pads on mine (at 50,000kms) and any pulsing that was there went away soon after, never to return. Some heavy brake use seems to clear it up.

    Interesting - we'll have to see what happens when they test the run-out on the discs next week

    The last time it was definitely an issue with the discs

    My Sophie's MOT is due on the 6th August....

    Taking it to my Local Mender/MOT Tester who hasn't done one yet...

    She had new Front Discs a couple of months back, everything else is Tickety-Boo - so, Fingers Crossed
