Okay, I've had it with my dealer!
This sunday I went for a trip to the seaside to relax and visit some mates.
When I returned I was enjoying the Multi on the highway.
But all of a sudden, this never happened before, I experienced vibration under hard braking!
Not a reliable feeling tbh....
Than I did some research on the net and found out it could be just dirty pads, worn pads, or even warped discs....
Than I investigated my pads and to my HUGE surprise, they left this on the bike!!!
As you can see, one side is kinda okay, but the other side is really worn!
Not only don't I understand why they didnt change the pads for safety matters, but also, they were obliged to do so according to the rules of granting Ducati Approved guarantee.
This is something new from begin this month, offered only in certain EU countries btw, so dont pannic if you didnt hear about this before
The site is in Dutch, but I'll translate: Ducati Approved - Erkende tweedehands Ducati motoren
There is a 35 point checklist to wich the bike has to pass or adjusted and than they can grand extended warranty to second hand Ducati's.
Point 16 & 17 & 25 & 26 deal about the brakes. (pads, torque settings, function, etc)
Point 17 states discs and pads have to be checked on worn (70%).
Yesterday I went a step further, or rather drastic?
I removed the brakepads to look at them up close...
In the process, I damaged my rims with some scratches...very very idiotic of me.
(I have a torque wrench, + service manual, so dont worry, its all bolted up to spec again)
But these are the results:
Tell me those pads are at 70% capacity
I immediately send him a very long email, and got this answer, with a picture of a new pad:
"Your brakes are not worn, these new ones are not much thicker than that you know.
It could be that there's a bit of play on the ballhead or like you say the discs but that would be weird to happen all of a sudden.
That is a litteraly translation from Dutch to English...
He also did not mention about my Guarantee request, wich was applied a month ago even before I got the bike...
So, I am fed up with this and I am gonna talk to another dealer, because if you get such a respons, they can kiss my ass tbh!
So today I rode the bike, but too shortly and not on the freeway, so different circumstances.
But I had the impression the cleaning helped a bit, but still felt some fibrations.
I can't believe its due to warped discs, but just uneven wear on pads leftside-rightside thats causing my vibrations under hard braking only.
Any thoughts about this?
Tomorrow I am gonna buy myself a micrometer to check the discs, just to be sure.
