    front brake discs repair?

    My rsv 06 factory brembo front discs are loose- the outer section moves when i apply force to them using my hand. I guess this isn't normal and they are coming to an end?- only done 7k of road use. The diameter of them are fine so can these be repaired or is it replace? Im doing track riding from now on so any suggestions on powerful disc and pad combo whould be helpful and were to buy, price etc.

    I think you'll find that the movement is perfectly normal, these are fully floating discs and you'll find you have problems when the disc doesn't move on the bobbins.

    If you apply your front brake and rock the bike back and forth you will see the disc move around 1mm or so, this is absolutely normal.

    Time to replace them when they are below minimum thickness or warped. Minimum thickness will be stamped on the centre hub by the way.

    Funny I noticed the same thing today on mine. I was moving it out of the garage to get her bike out. Normally I fire it up but today the baby was asleep so I pushed it out and heard a rattle sound, when I checked it was the disc and I thought the same.

    Thank god it's normal

    Standard discs are more than adequate for track, but buy some good pads, i use Brembo RC pads, pricey but if ya wanna stop quick then these go a long way to helping with that

    Make sure all the buttons on the discs are spinning freely, the discs are semi floating, if you saw a full race set up with full floaters you would not believe how much they rattle
