This is a very common Ducati issue and easily remedied. If you check other Duc forums you will find a lot of threads about it. Simply apply one VERY small drop of a good lightweight lubricant (I use MPT-12 Multi-Purpose Molybdenum/PTFE Lubricant and Penetrant) to each "button" on both discs after you wash your bike and your problem is solved. I always let the bike sit overnight before riding to allow the lube migrate around the buttons before riding. The lube will not sling onto the disc surface if you use only one very small droplet per button.Hello!
I have about 2500 kms on the bike now and the last 500kms the front brake is grabbing/pulsing like the rotors are warped.
Anyone else getting this and I assume after 2500kms this SHOULDN'T be the case?
I also do not ride hard!
Why don't you simply try a very small droplet of moly based lube on each button on the discs? Allow the bike to sit overnight so the lube has a chance to migrate around the buttons. I believe you'll find the issue has disappeared. Search other Ducati forums...you'll find the same issue (and solution) prevalent throughout.Ok.. so just did a trip 2000 km trip. When I was in Montreal I went to Ducati service because it started even at high speed. He looked at it and said the disks seemed to be floating ok. He said probably had dust or dirt in the pads the needed to be burned out. So he told me to get the bike up to a good speed and then just grab a bit of break to heat the brakes up a bit and then pull hard and repeat that 3 - 4 times. I did that but nothing has changed. The front brake is still pulsing and now even at speed.
I like this tip and should be part of routine maintenance, however 2500km is a very worrying concern. Last thing you need is the brake locking up at corner entry.Why don't you simply try a very small droplet of moly based lube on each button on the discs?

Take the pads out and give them a rub with some coarse grit paper. We are at last resort stuff here but give it go.So dry lubed the rotor buttons and did a run... no change. Still the same problem. SOOOO friggin frustrating! New bike and I'd rather ride my 2004 BMW. ha ha Guess I'll call the dealer again and see if they will look at it and figure something out.
PS: When I check the rotors out, they all seem to move freely at the rotor points. Nothing seems to be sticking.
