Front brake concerns.

I have an 08 Versys done 14,500k's, which I thoroughly enjoy except for the front brake. Each time it's applied lightly I get this on/off feeling as if the discs are warped! Has anybody else experienced this, and more importantly what's the cure?

Look forward to some help on this one.
Peter.

Bleed them first, just in case, and check the pad wear. If the disc's are warped just write the big ole' check and replace them. It is kinda weird if they are- something must have happened, vs the discs getting thin. Like disc's down to metal, outta fluid, dirt in the master cylinder preventing fluid return, stuff like that.

You sure they are warped? What's it doing that makes you think that?

I bought a motorcycle because my wife said that I couldn't! Now I have two and she still says I can't have another one!
