I just installed new EBC pads on my R1200RT, and the front brakes judder as much as they did with the old pads. Has anyone gone to an aftermarket rotor? Does that cure the dreaded "Judder"? How about these from Beemerboneyard?

Dick, well you have pretty well eliminated the pads,, No way to know for sure on the rotors unless they show excess run out or excess thickness variation.. Even if they measure within specs they could still have staining or pad build-up causing your judder problem..

Still might end up being the wheels as BMW had an early history of the front wheel (rotor mounting area) being the cause of brake pulsation on the some of the 1200 bikes..

So NH
First remove front wheel and retourque the disk bolts in a star pattern.

And yes BMW did have a mfg snafu or the wheel machining process that did not provide the correct thickness on disk bolt surfaces.


So NH 2008 R1200RT IBA AMA MOA; Is AA next?
