Maidstone Motoliner- Kent. Recommended!

Post by tony.mon »

As part of my front end refresh on the forks, calipers and brakes on my Tuono, I checked the runout on my Brembo discs. One was slightly out. The other was quite a bit out, and it had been noticeable when braking for a while. I had been riding round it.
But as I was refreshing the whole front end I thought it might be a good idea to get the whole lot sorted.

I have a dti, so was able to see where the runout was, but didn't want to start hammering and levering in the hope that I'd find a solution. Then I remembered Maidstone Motoliner, who one used in the last to have cast wheels straightened.
I called them, they had time to do it whilst I waited, so took the wheel there.

45 mins ( and a cheeky pie and chips) later, and £48 lighter, they're both straight and true once more.
Brilliant service, cheap (not quite as cheap as the chips, but very reasonable) and highly recommended.

You can post stuff in, if you aren't local.
It's not falling off, it's an upgrade opportunity.

Nice one Tony :thumbup:

So did they confirm it was the disc that was the issue?

I knew that already, I'd checked it using my dial test indicator.
One wasn't too bad, the other had a visible wobble.
They trued both, and now braking is back as it should be.

I had read your post where you said you were using a DTI, but due to you saying that there wasn't enough undrilled area on the disc for the dti to sit, I wondered if Motoliner with their specialist equipment said the same as you thought, obviously they did :thumbup: :thumbup:

Got my Ducati wheel back from Motoliner today, what a great job they do.
