Thisis common, my concours rotors did it and now my versys 1000 rotors are pulsing. As you're learning, sand the rotors and free up the bobbins. good until next time.

It's looking like it'll be something I need to do at every front tire change, at minimum. I don't know if it's a pad issue or road grime.

All I do know is regular shop chemicals won't touch it.
