I don't know how to copy a prior post yet but in regards to the comment that floating brake rotors on these bikes don't move. FLOATING ROTORS always move hence the name floating.

Yes, they are designed to move sideways at right angles to the rotation of the wheel. The problem reported and photographed by an inmate is that on his 'bike the U-shaped slots had worn in the direction of rotation, allowing the "floating rotor" to move forwards and backwards as well as sideways. This then produced vibration/ chatter especially when the ABS was modulating the brakes.

Rear brake rotor is hot after riding. Front is just warm. I am making sure I'm not resting my foot on the pedal. reservoir is below max and free play is 6 MM. On the center stand, it is not dragging.

Any ideas?

Is the rear rotor scratched at all? If so there could be a small stone embedded in the rear pads. If that is OK, then water or air contamination in the rear brake fluid circuit could cause the symptoms you describe. Get the dealer to drain, replace and bleed the rear brake fluid following the procedure in the service manual.

Steering Head Bearings aka headset

My headset has loosened after only 1500 miles. I understand it's a common issue, but I'm wondering if I will have to check it every 1K miles or was it just too loose from the factory and an annual/semi-annual inspection will do?

Mine loosened too; now I am travelling, loosened again. By the way, when I started the trip, resetted the Trip 2, last week at roughly 7500 km, suddenly Trip 2 resetted itself.

Pretty common thing to happen on new motorcycles. My 1190 did it, as well as a Super Tenere I used to have. Just remove the nut and dab a little loc-tite and torque to spec. It should stay tight from there out.

It must suck to hate your bike so much? Does it make you angry every time you look at it in your garage?

My headset has come loose for the fifth time now. First three times I took it too the dealer, as I figured they should be aware of it, and they should figure it out eventually. I was wrong. Forth time it came loose I did it myself...loosened the top fork bolts and the top triple clamp nut then tried to figure out how to tighten the wierd headset nut....and I snapped the wee tool I found in the standard tool kit that sort of fit! How are you guys torquing this thing down...what tool are you using? Anyone have a picture of the tool?
