Noise in the fork / brakes when braking slowly abruptly.

Post by jrc58 » Mon Sep 25, 2017 8:26 pm

KTM 1290 Super Adventure 2015
When braking going more or less slowly makes a "wiki wiki" as if something lacked lubrication in the area of fork and steering pipe.
To put them in situation in a descent with the motorcycle almost stopped but walking grasping the brake a little strong and loose, tight and loose and so several times and every time makes that "wiki wiki".
Stopping pushes the damping up and down very hard, very loud, and does not make noise. Just do it walking and slowly.
The noise is not of pills because if I brake, going fast, constant but strong it does not.
Sorry for my english translator.

Sounds like your rotors are warped, throw a stand under the front end and spin the wheel. It may be hard to see with the naked eye but you can lock a object of your choice perpendicular to the rotor. You'll see it a lot easier that way. Good luck
