I replaced the disc yesterday and the pulsation is gone. Doubt if anybody will ever notice that the holes drilled in the rotor are backwards.
The braking is significantly better and I think I can finally move on to other items that need my attention.
Over the winter... rebuilding the caliper is high on the list. Need to check the oil in the forks as well. I'd also like to change the chain and sprockets and replace the valve cover gasket.
The biggest item will be the paint work. The other time consuming item will be polishing the engine side cases.
None of this starts until I for sure can't ride anymore this season without significant expenditures in winter gear.
