    Juddering front brakes.

    Afternoon All.

    Gen 1 XR with 16.5k miles. I’ve only had the bike a short while and today I noticed that just before coming to stop the front brakes are juddering. They’re fine at speed. Did seem to get worse as the day went on.

    Any ideas as to what to look for are welcome.

    First try cleaning discs with brake cleaner, and check bobbins are free, either of these could cause the judder, worst case is warped discs. Replace with new pads
