Re: front disk rollers

If the rotor has lateral movement, that's not too bad, it's rideable, it's
designed for that. The circular movement (looseness) is an indication that
the disk cutting into the "rollers", into the pins. I had quite a lot of the
latter when I changed the pins. I only bought the pins and re-used the
washers and the circular clip on each.

Subject: front disk rollers

Hello Presidents,

The front rotors on my 2000 R1100R have started rattling when I go over
small bumps. I can grab the rotors and wiggle them from side to side, and
when I apply the brakes the rattling stops. Obviously I need to replace the
rollers, but in the meantime I have a couple of questions: Any idea how long
I can continue riding with the old rollers? Is it a safety hazard? Will
continued use damage other parts of the brake assembly? My daughter is
getting married in a few weeks so my wife has informed me that I have
neither the time nor the money nor the inclination to repair the bike right
now, but I would like to go for a short ride now and then.

Thanks in advance,

Dan Fordice
