Have a 1200st with frontbreaks that shaking, when breaking, there are a fix to this but the parts are not here yet from the factory(new disc) (should have been here 6 month ago!).
Have anybody same problems?

Do a search - plenty of info in regards to front rotor/front wheel problems.

Here is a link to one of them:

Hi mine is a 05' and the rotors have been replaced one time and the problem came back again after 3 month, now the dealer told me that the parts are delayed 6 month but bmw have found a solution, is that the same story other have heard?

Yeah, the front cast wheel is somehow "on backorder" but it should be more like 6 days, not 6 months. That's just crazy.

Oh wait! Is your warranty up within in 6 months?

Another option is your front tire. What's it's condition?

I wondered if my rotors were warped at one time but when I replaced my somewhat scalloped front tire the problem went away.


oops.... just saw your response that it's an 05. Disregard my above statement I guess.
