Full Floater buttons on the front rotors of their Multistrada

Has anyone here fitted Brembo Full Floater buttons on the front rotors of their Multistrada? If yes, how much of an improvement doe these floater buttons provide ... i.e.: less rotor drag, better feel when braking, etc...?

I had full floater ductile iron rotors on my Hypermotard 1100, and really liked the improvement over stock non-floating rotors, so I am hoping these Brembo floater buttons might provide the same kind of improvement.

Did you find a deal on those ? The price I saw was so high I figured Iíd just by floating rotors. If your buttons have through holes you can clean them by rotating them with a drill and lube and they will float better.

I installed Brembo float buttons when my '12 had around 6000 miles (if memory serves). Brake shudder was horrendous, and NO, the rotors weren't warped, it was a build up of pad material because.....if I did 1-2 FULL NUKE stops, the shudder went away. So, I installed the float buttons and BINGO, no more shudder! EVER! And my bike has 90,000+ miles on her. The only (?) negative, are they need to be replaced every 15,000 miles (for my style of riding), so I just do it when I'm servicing her.

Ever time I have the wheels off I go over my rotors with a vibratory sander and 60-80 grit pad, then wash with solvent. If itís a floater I clean the buttons. No issues.

Shudder? I'm curious what your definition is?

I note that my bike has a slight vibration or shudder that occurs when under light front end braking. Its fine under strong braking. I guess that its some sort of harmonics that is causing it. I was thinking about chamfering the leading edges of the front pads to see if that eliminated that vibration.

If you use your brakes lightly a lot, more than likely itís build up or pad glazing. Chamfering might help. Sometimes they just need a thorough cleaning. Iíve found it easier to just rough it up with a vibratory sander. Same with the pads.
