Rear caliper was seized enough that I could hear rubbing while in motion. Bike still seemed to roll normally with clutch in, but rotor got too hot to touch after a few blocks.
I rebuilt the caliper with all new rubber. Piston was perfect, but I cleaned it and everything else anyway. Put it...
Had my V for 3 years and each year managed 10k miles
I had to claim 3 sets of front disks on warranty so far and now its run out I dont really want to buy them myself.
Am I just getting through them due to high mileage or have others had similar wear issues?
Question: Do steel braided brakes lines really help with brakes on the Versys non-ABS because I did an advanced braking course with HoppRider training and this bike can stop very well from 50mph (about 10-15 meters). Admittedly with a hint of front wheel sliding at the end :cool:
