Fazer8 brake vibration
« on: 18 October 2017, 08:48:20 PM »
Hi guys, yust bought a 2012 Fazer8 last week and I'm finding when I apply the front brake it feels like it's working a motor. There is quite a bit of vibration from it and can feel it most when I'm stationery.
The place I bought it from said that's the way it is, anyone out there have it happening to them?

Front brakes on any bike should be smooth with no vibration, discs could be warped, pads/pistons sticking, steering head bearings could need adjusting or replacing.
I don't understand what you mean when you say you can feel it most when stationery?


But if you bought it from a dealer or trader you should take it straight back and tell them to put it right or give you your money back.

If it happens when stationary I can only think it's a faulty ABS.

+1 for ABS unit.
Where are you based? Maybe someone could offer a second opinion.
I'd be happy to have a look if you are within 100 miles of Newport.

Thanks for saying you would look at it for me but I live in Belfast.
The bike was taken back to the dealer's yesterday were they said, it's the way it is!
With the bike stationary and ticking over, when I pull the front brake lever even a few mm the vibration can be felt. Seems it comes from under the seat but could be wrong on that one.

If its not the lever pulsing but from elsewhere on the bike I would go with the other people and say its the ABS pump.Find where it is and make sure its bolted down properly.
