My front and rear sounded like nails on chalk board when new. Front is fine now but rear still does it when I come to a stop.

I have the same problem on my 950s, Iím now 8,000 miles in and not found a solution. Itís been back to the dealer and I got a similar response, ďsintered brake pads are noisyĒ, never been a problem on any of my previous bikes though. Iíll be interested to see if you resolve your problem.

About 1 month after I purchased my 950S, I started to experience a brake howl/shudder when coming to stops.  I'd guess the noise starts when I'm modulating off the brakes a little just before a full stop, maybe around 10 MPH.  Asked the dealer about it and they told me it was normal for bikes with floating rotors.  That's bullsh#t.  Had plenty of other bikes with fully and partially floating rotors and never experienced this.

Caliper and Rotor mounting bolts are all tight.

Thinking, since we are in the middle of a storm at the moment, that I might pop off the front wheel to scuff/sand the full surface of the rotors and pop the front pads out and do the same.  Start with fresh surfaces and go though brake bed-in again to see if it helps. 

Anyone else experience this on their 950?

I'm wondering if you guys are accounting for static sag in the front end.  I was confused as to why I was harshly bottoming out the front, but when off the bike, I was only measuring 5" to the cable tie and our forks are supposed to have 6.7" of travel.  So, I slid the cable tie up to the top of the stanchion, lifted the front end of the bike until the wheel came off the ground and had my wife measure the distance from bottom of fork tube to cable tie and it was 1.7".  That means this pig has 43mm of static sag.  Keep in mind that this measurement was also taken with the front preload bolt wound in full to stop.

I can only assume that the progressive portion of the spring on the front is fully compressed under just the weight of the bike.  That is a complete waste of the travel they are claiming this bike has.  Will only extend if you get airborne and then provides no support when you land, only to blow through all the travel when the wheel touches down.

Sorry, but they did very little to develop the suspension on this model.  Maybe be it's better on the 1200's, but I'm pretty unimpressed with my 950S suspension.  The skyhook is doing nothing if the spring able to keep you in midstroke, both front and rear.  Also, progressive springs are just a band aid for poorly designed suspension.

I know it's not possible to have a coil suspension that will accommodate all rider weights and account for passengers and gear, but I'm bottoming out harshly on rough roads with just me.  No passenger and no luggage.

Has anyone replaced the link pipe and had the ECU reflashed ?
Iím looking at putting a Leo Vince link pipe with the Akra slip on.
Iíd like to know the best option for the reflash, and what power and torque gains youíve achieved.
Thanks for any replies
